I posted this page in my art journal which was made of leftover paint not long ago. I have done a rough sketch of a Buddha over the background, and decided to write a poem around it.
Red Buddha sits peacefully in wise knowledge of the sacred fire
Vital life force, the prana which flows through all of life
From the smallest blade of grass to the giant blue whale
We are all wrapped in its protection, safely ensconced
As it has no beginning, nor does it have an end
This week I’ve been making finishing touches on two pieces that I painted a while back. They’re almost complete now. With the leftover paint, I’ve started a new journal page. Looks like I’ll be working on filling some of the background pages in soon. The last thing I did was a quickie Angel sketch. Below are the pics of everything.
Below are a few things I played around with this week. The top photo is a little mixed media manga piece that I’m calling “Absorbing the Crystal Cave”. It is definitely not my best work. I was experimenting with some new materials and had to spend a lot of time attempting to salvage it. The shots below the manga pic are of a spread in a little art journal that I’ve been slathering leftover paint in as I work on other things. Who knows what will eventually show up there, but it’s fun playing. I made a few more kitchen cloths this week too. A pic of them is at the bottom.
