Fish Shop of the Town

Rolleiflex SL66SE Planar 80mm

In Japan, the fish means well-being, happiness and freedom. It is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols used in Buddhism imported from China. The fish symbolises living in a state of fearlessness, without danger of drowning in the ocean of sufferings, and migrating from place to place freely and spontaneously.

Happy Thanksgiving 2011 to all of my readers!   I hope your day was filled with great conversation, or perhaps some quiet time, along with some of your favorite culinary delights.

The colors in this painting grabbed me

the day has been rainy

and it is a gentle reminder of the summer that is slowly leaving us.

New Work

Angel of Debt

This is a detail of  one of my works in progress.   It is oil on canvas, and the finished piece will be  4′ x 4′.  This is an affirmation of getting back into the creative world, rather than spending too much time on the internet!
