thanks so much Karen 🙂
I really like the luminosity of your landscapes … and the abandonment in your style!
Thanks Luke 🙂 Sent from my Vodafone Smart mini
oooh, I like ‘ abondonment’ as a painting style, cool, thanks Luke 🙂
Wow. I love all of them. Esp the first and fifth ones, but they are all great, and work together.
thanks Jeff, first is now sold, those first two are views from Namobuddha, a small village on the eastern edge of the rim of the kathmandu valley, where an incarnation of Buddha was suuposed to have given up his flesh for a starving tiger and her cubs. Theres a huge modern buddhist temple and a tiny ancient shrine and fabulous views. The third and fourth are separate views of different sections of the Annapurna range from two different lakes , one in Pokhara, one called Begnas Tal where I did a 100 day silent Vipassana retreat. The fifth is one of about 20 pieces I made on the theme of prayer flags. The last is a collage, using pieces of actual prayer flags and powdered mineral pigment, called ‘ ritual and sacrifice’ which is a response to the many hindu temples I saw and especially the large pilgrimage site at Manacamina .
Thanks again 🙂
oops, 10 days not 100, and I didnt manage to be silent for even that long 🙂
Himalayas has always been an inspiration to me and my work too. I am glad you enjoyed reading the post on my blog. Have a good evening 🙂
