Here are some of the paintings I completed during the two year Climbing the Love Tree circumambulation of the planet:
Displayed at the Second Song of Source Show in Santa Fe – The Alchemical Elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire
Painted for dear friend Joey and his bride – They met just around the spot depicted here.
For a new festival raw food restaurant possibly opening in California.
The first in finding images within chaotic and random paint throwing and swirling.
My dear accomplice on more than half of the journey, left and gifted eventually at Fairy Meadows in the light of Nanga Parbat ninth tallest mountain of Gaia.
A service learning project integrating Vedic and Integral Yoga symbology at the Youth Camp guest house where the Living Routes project has at times been based from.
Painted this sign for a local bar in Shangrila Old Town. Much thanks to Chuni and the guys at Namaste Bar – we had a joyous time circle dancing, singing and drinking.
Painted at the top of the stairs in a hostel for a week of stay and amazing Chinese food.
Traded to the good folks at Prajna Bar for as much as I cared to drink of Beer Lao Dark, Yunnan Sticky Rice Wine and Tibetan Barley Wine.
Traded along with a couple other signs for a night’s rest at the Spicy Laos Hostel in Vangvien.
Painted during my stay with the Mus family in Ketambe, gateway to Gunung Leuser national park. Coffee from the back yard, fresh sambal, young jackfruit curries and durian dawoon. A helping of paradise.
For a friend on his porch in the Northern Territory.
Traded for a few fat sacks of cacao! Thank you so much to Rachel and the Soma crew!
