three more I wrote yesterday, same expression but various styles.

無事 is a phrase from Zen philisophy, which lit. means "no thing", as in no disturbance (both mental and physical), quietness, peace.

I LOVE that one for 道. Fabulous work; the character almost looks like a galleon sailing off into the distance. サクラ too. It looks to me like two trees on either side of a stream, with the falling petals.

Thanks Columbine
Beautifully said.
Artists look at calligraphy in a refreshing way.
I see the galleon now. It appeared to me three dimensional, though, have not looked at it this way.

With the sakura, the hardest bit was to make the white page pink, as i am color blind lol.

響 echo in 3 styles: 楷書、行書、草書





勢 vigor, momentum, impact
same as above but in large scale, character has over a meter in height.
