About Sumi-e No 04

Curated calligraphic, dripping brushstrokes in white -- three vertical dashes followed by a rough circle with a final horizontal dash -- are rendered on an inky black ground. In its graphic simplicity, the shapes and characters in this horizontal format image reference Japanese Sumi-e brush writing.
