I reposted these pictures under “Thousand Petal Lotus” for two reasons;

I managed to get a better picture by photographing them outside. These paintings, although individual, are an integral part in the making of  “Thousand Petal Lotus” and “Sahasrara”.

      Wow! Thanks Joanna, I used the same palette for all of them, however all three were done over top of previous paintings I had done. I am starting to find painting kind of Magical, I think it is in the layers or “what’s beneath the last layer of paint…

    Moody and evocative work – wonderful recycling of old canvases. I’ve tried this but more often than not the ‘ghost’ of the previous painting haunts the new so strongly I can never seem to exorcize it…

      I have been working on letting go of my attachment to everything, including my paintings. As a result I am embracing the process of painting more than the painting itself and it is bringing me some peace. However, nothing is without sacrifice and risk with painting over old paintings. I am going through some tough lessons these days John, and my art seems to be my teacher. Thank you for your comments, they are very much appreciated.
