Hey! So, I tried a new art idea with one of my paintings - you take those really random paintings you did when you were a little kid and …. well… finish them.
Find shapes and ideas in these pictures even if it doesn’t make sense.
Did you know?
The term “guitar” is used to refer to a number of instruments that were developed and used across Europe, beginning in the 12th century and, later, in the Americas. Modern chordophones are the descendants of long lines of instruments that go back several thousand years to those of ancient Central Asia and India. For this reason, modern western chordophones, like the guitar, the violin, the lute and others, are distantly related to the modern instruments of Central Asia and India, including the tanbur, the setar and the sitar. A 3,300-year-old stone carving of a Hittite bard playing a stringed instrument is the oldest iconographic representation of a chordophone.
Maṇḍala (मण्डल) is a Sanskrit word meaning “circle.” Mandalas have spiritual and ritual significance in Hinduism and Buddhism.
The term is of Hindu origin. It appears in the Rig Veda as the name of the sections of the work, but is also used in other Indian religions, particularly Buddhism.
In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention of aspirants and adepts, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. In the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana Buddhism, mandalas have been developed into sandpainting. They are also a key part of Anuttarayoga Tantra meditation practices.
let time be the wave that washes away the pain in your life each morning.
Some day, I want to go Bungee Jumping for real. You know, off fancy cliffs and whatnot. You feel like a little kid. You feel free. Danger is just so liberating.
