Hi Gregor. Yes. It's great.

I used the lightly marbled oil. I also put a tiny amount of blur on it in Photoshop. Just to make it a bit smoother.

Another great program you might want to check is ArtRage2 Free. I did the comic with that one.

What were you thinking of for the blog sittings? I would be happy to do something if I'm capable.

Here is a photo of a small wood working piece. I've made a few rakusu rings out of wood. This one landed on the neck of a small turtle statue at Mountain Lamp zendo. There is a famous Zen story that goes with this. It is about how hard it is to be human and how luck we are to find the dharma.

I envy all of you who can create things with your hands; I have never been able to do so... It must be quite a feeling to be able to hold something in your hards that you've made.

It's a treat to come to this forum and see what yous alls have got up on the gallery walls.

What a pleasure to view these creations. It is especially fun to read your discussion of how these things get created!

Wills--where would we go to place rakusu ring orders?

What number of enso is that for you Harry?

Will, here is a link to a PDF of the story.
The One-eyed Turtle and the Floating Sandalwood Log (http://sgilibrary.org/pdf/130_0957.pdf)

This story is from 1279 by a Japanese monk named Nichiren Daishonin who founded the Nichiren School of Buddhism. I don't know any thing about this group other than they still are around and they seem to put a lot of emphasis on the Lotus Sutra.

Not sure I could get along with the Nichiren School of Buddhism yet this parable is a good one. I guess this really isn't a 'Zen' story but appropriate none the less.

Beautiful art work everyone! I can't draw a straight line with a ruler so my outlet is photography. I remember shooting his one as an after thought, on my way out of the area I was shooting in. My first thought upon seeing the raw file was Zen. Not sure how you'll see it though. :D

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v369/scubacowboy/Photography/branchinwater.jpg

It's been scaled down here, so click on the image to see a slightly larger, but viewable version.

My favourite photographic medium is black and white. I'll post some more from time to time if you would like.

Cheers,
Bruce

Thanks Will! A lot of luck conspired that evening to produce this picture. It's untouched by the way, but for a slight levels adjustment. The raw file looked pretty much just like that.

Harry


part of their downfall as a sect was that they started to be used as spies because they were permitted to travel freely and hide their identities!...

interesting. heh

Harry,

I think yours would be a tough one to follow, but I have put some stuff up on my blog in the past.

Ill trade you my 1.8 Yuu for that 2.4 Young though :D

Here is a link of me embarrassing myself

Harry,



Have you considered the idea that you can express reality, and yourself, through tradition very effectively?


Recently yes, but the why is important to me. At the time of posting I had been considering my wanting to learn the classics a type of end gaming. So I could say, Hey I did sompthing great! And now I think I have snuffed out that view and replaced it with another, hey I made my own song, aren't I great! Which is also not helpful.

I am currently interested in learning the classics again, simply to know them. Just a matter of changing perspective. I try and do that at least two times a day :wink: However lessons are not free, so I am content to just breath into the Shak when I have a moment. If it is learning a classic or just blowing Ro, Or just passing wind through the flute its all good.

Take care,
Jordan

Guitar improvisation 1:

The idea was to keep it minimal and focus on the notes, harmonics and sounds.

Played on a spruce top classical guitar with reverb added.

Note: The Hi fi play is better quality. Might be slower to load.

It's there. :) Right above the flute.

Those are actually just light taps on the bottom of the guitar and bridge. The bridge gives a bass drum like sound when hit correctly.


The tonic is actually D. I noticed that when I hit the last note. It kind of ends abruptly, but it is what it is.

Crunchy Sweet is a mix of Chinese flute and erhu samples with guitar and other noises.

Well I guess I should put up my link. It's not polite to accept a gift and give nothing in return.

It's kinda an IDM/Dance/World Fusion kinda thing.

The other mix was kind of low, so I uploaded a new one.

I recommend listening to it with headphones.

They strange sound is a guitar that I did some stuff to.
