I have ordered watercolour paints, which will be delivered by Curry’s shortly. I am looking into getting a dough spreader (one of Zappha’s favorite tools for Yupo). I will pick up a few eye droppers tomorrow. In short, the Yupo bug has been caught and I am eager to experiment.
I am contemplating miksang.
Miksang is a Tibetan word that translates as ‘Good Eye.’ When steady mind, clear vision and soft heart come together in one single moment, ‘Good Eye’ manifests. It is vision that is inherently pure, unobstructed, unblocked, free of depression, free of aggression, free of interpretation. Free altogether. When we synchronize eye and mind, we abandon all concepts and predispositions and become completely present in the moment. The world becomes a magical display of vivid perception.
These are a couple more pieces I painted at the Barfoot Yupo Workshop:
