...or not

Resonant: Having a lasting presence or effect; enduring. Strongly reminiscent; evocative.
Enigma: A person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand.

Some things you might find here: Paintings; drawings; abstract and representational; sketches; doodles; photos; thoughts on art and its processes, my influences; thoughts on meditation and so-called "spiritual" teachings, non duality, Taoism, Zen, etc., and teahers/sages like Chuang Tzu, Lao Tzu, Krishnamurti (both), Wei Wu Wei (Terence Gray), Galen Sharp, Steven Norquist, Eckhart Tolle, Ramana Maharshi, etc.... and doG knows what else, really...

No sidebar because I like to post big pictures. Lists and whatnot are at the bottom.

Rear views

~
The first one is the first "rear view" I ever did, and proves that boredom leads to creativity. Nothing else looked interesting, and then I happened to glance at the mirror. Suddenly the Home Depot was a motif.


I then began to make it a "thing" by continuing the 'rear view' approach at a Dallas area Starbucks.
 


And again at the White Rock Coffee Shop...
 

 
 
Then one day on lunch break at a place in Farmers Branch, this actually happened. Of course Bud The Crow did not stick around and pose for me, so the mirror and door frame are from life, but Bud had to be extrapolated from internet images. He(she? I can't tell) really did look that cool though.
