            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?

                              Will, here is a link to a PDF of the story.
                              The One-eyed Turtle and the Floating Sandalwood Log

                              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.
