Digitally yours

Been playing with digital images a lot. I’m doing a book cover for a friend’s book. Will post more images of the book when/if I manage to come up with something publishable; and probably when it’s the right time to publicize it. But in the meantime, I successfully procrastinate, and end up doing more and more digital sketches that are irrelevant to the book project. But I guess they got "A Possible Sunris-ish" flavor. I will be using them when I plan those compositions.

And if you wonder how on earth these photographic images provide a foundation for my abrsract compositions, have a look at this. It’s a detail of my most recent finished painting :)

A Possible Sunrise or The Seven Suns

A Possible Sunrise or The Seven Suns

A Possible Sunrise or The Seven Suns. Acrylic on canvas, January 2010

“After a last vast interval, a seventh sun appears, and then, monks, this great earth, and Sineru, the monarch of mountains, flare and blaze, and become one mass of flame. And now, from earth and mountains burning and consuming, a spark is carried by the wind and goes as far as the worlds of God; and the peaks of Mount Sineru, burning, consuming, perishing, go down in one vast mass of fire and crumble for an hundred, yea, five hundred leagues. And of this great earth, monks, and Sineru, the monarch of mountains, when consumed and burnt, neither ashes nor soot remains. Just as when ghee or oil is consumed and burnt, monks, neither ashes nor soot remains, so it is with the great earth and Mount Sineru.”
– Buddha
