...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.

Sidewalk World

~


16x20" oil on canvas, 1996. Done from a photo I took with my first SLR camera back in the 80's, of a section of sidewalk next to my Mom's house. (Now that I think of it, this scene is on the same side of the house as the previous post, same vacant lot in the background.)
I think I finished this in about three hours one afternoon.
It got Honorable Mention in a local art show one time, for being such an unexpected subject, something like that.
And if memory serves, I used Copal painting medium on this one.
I like how the grass growing up through the crack looks like a miniature tree line.
