an image of Buddha Shakyamuni, a mural my oldest daughter, mariko, finished in my backyard! she first drew it by grid from the traditional art and then added her own style of colors to the mix! i love how it came out! i leave tomorrow morning for a weeks retreat in Brazil…..may everyone be happy.
tig welding the outside of a new work…a gramophone of sorts (my take), to attach on top of the pipe to the left that is anchored by my old pine tree (80 yr old) stump. the ol pine died due to parasites and drought, a sad loss in the desert.
there is still a lot of work to do. the bottom of the gramophone will be rounded more to look like petals and rolled out slightly…the pipe will have an unusual elbow attached to give direction of “voice” where earth speaks of her betrayal from humanity….
…presence of mind.
my mind has finally come to terms that my 365 project has failed…i cannot retrieve days passed…moments lost…alas, life held too many distractions or the project itself didn’t captivate me enough to keep pace with a daily image in photographing and/or documenting it. there is a lot of time associated with taking one image per day. the photography end is easy for me it’s posting on the internet that cripples my flow and turns it into “obligation” . today i post freely w/o much ado an image from last night at a favorite sushi bar…her aura is created by a passing white menu! funny, without the truth exposed there could be many interpretations!
One Love! One Heart!
Let’s get together and feel all right.
