The bay tree outside our kitchen is more than 100 years old. On the north side of its thick trunk is a huge healed circular scar. The way that the bark healed some time long ago it created a most beautiful mandala. I photographed it with my digital camera then manipulated the image in Painter 2018 by actively drawing or painting into the existing content whatever it suggested to my imagination.
Sometimes I think of this method as a kind of oracle: showing me a dream while I am awake.
Hi Bob — Super (and thanks for the (also super) twig post too. I appreciate the realization that one doesn’t necessarily need to travel very far to find new worlds. Happy (rest of) weekend 😜🤡🤖
This is really beautiful Bob! K
