Long time since I 'painted' on my Ipad. Here is

Milerepa done today.

Any art work you have done lately to share?

    How come Milarepa is all red? I thought he was green from eating nettles?

    She started green enough as a raven. Using an Apple pencil and Ipad tablet, lets you go back and forth through the Milarepa incarnations ...

    Many thanks. Painting a Bodhi is an act of devotion and an expression of our nature. Be interested in any dharma art from our majors ...

    I'm hardly an expert on what makes good art, but those look good to my eye. I find the colors and shapes appealing for whatever reason.

    You have just got a one track mind ;)

    @paulyso ... maybe you can take a mobile phone pic and upload, perhaps from a public library. Not sure what to suggest for USA ...

    thanks lobster.i'll look into it.

  • @lobster, do you have a full resolution version of any of those paintings. I’d love to download one. My dad does life drawing and I really appreciate the way he uses colour, never the shades that you’d expect: neon purple and yellow outlines on a black background, etc. I think he’d enjoy seeing your paintings, as they look similar to me. I like them very much :)

    Thanks @adamcrossley

    Remember I am doing these on a Ipad tablet with a stylus (apple pencil) I am not any more than a determined dabbler ...

    I was going to comment how nice it was until you mentioned that. Anyhow, did you do it, if so how?

    In tantra we are sometimes taught that mindful farting, orifice evacuation is an offering to the hungry ghosts and hell realm dwellers ...

    ... not sure they can digest flowers ...

    I liked the background.

    Using nothing more than filters, I played a little with your image o:)

    Where’s the proof dear lobster, where’s the proof. These latter-day teachers and their myths play fast and loose with the buddha’s ehi passiko.

    I did do it, but it was traced from another image, so it doesn’t really qualify as “art”. Maybe I’d call it a mindfulness practice.

    @lobster, thank you for your collaboration, it’s very whimsical.

    @adamcrossley makes a good avatar. I am using it as a desktop background ...
