Local folks, let me know if anyone is interested in any photo paper, sticker paper, canvas paper, fine art paper, all free for the taking and 8.5×11" and under. I have access to a stash from a now-out-of-business local paper manufacturer and it's going to get chucked if nobody claims it in the next few days.
She is just about all shedded out and ready for summer. #bikinibody
New little painting...yet another thing inspired by an old dream of "the end of the world," where a strong warm wind blew hills covered in tall grass. With the strong wind came these angelic figures who appeared in front of each person to unfurl a wooden castle- or pagoda-like structure which opened up and showed a symbolic scene that conveyed a message for them to take with them into the next world. OK, literally as I was typing this and thinking about how to describe the dream, a new scene came on the nature documentary TV show I had on in the background and it was about ancestor veneration of exhumed mummified folks, and one of their family members said, "We believe they still love us. They have become like the wind." I'm gonna keep making these. #art #painting #landscapepainting #dreams
New little #painting , kinda rough 'n rustic, oil on wood, yes it turns out these are in fact 3.5" x 5"
New little #painting Ash plume. About 3.5"x5" I think, I haven't measured it yet.
This garden pond is full of gigantic leaves like over a foot across, but all of the trees surrounding it are small decorative trees or evergreens, so where did the leaves come from? There are no leaves like those on the ground around the pond, only in the water. #leafmystery
People sometimes ask me if it's hard to practice both kyudo and olympic recurve archery. I really don't think there's any problem or conflict. Yes, olympic has the tournaments and it can seem like ego and competition plays a huge role and all that, but still, I think they are fundamentally similar disciplines, with of course very different equipment and cultural history...but it's all archery. The fact that this is what the US olympic coach wanted on the back of his book...that this is not a "kyudo" book... reinforces my opinion.
