This art amazes me. The artist is Paul Jenkins, 86 years old, who started studying art at the Art Student’s League in New York City the year before I was born. His technique has been called “controlled paint pouring.” The paint may have made contact with canvas but it has not stopped moving since. I am moved with it.
Enjoy the viewing here and visit his website www.pauljenkins.net for more.

from the biography on his website: An ongoing interest in Eastern religions and philosophy, the study of the I Ching, along with the writings of Carl Jung prompted Jenkins’ turn toward inward reflection and mysticism which have dominated his aesthetic as well as his life.
the best book on the I Ching I have known
