Thank you for opening this group, art will overcome language barriers and become the universal language.

I'll post something on the group's gallery soon -

Excellent group concept.

Spoken language seems to lose it's footing more everyday as music and art
truly become the ones in the driver's seat of consciousness. YA!

Ha, remember spray mount?! Those were the days.

"we set our lives to music"
White lotus star

but art...it is something,
i really appreciate,
and, love it, a lot more

art is, the real eXpression
of how one moves with their essence,
their own, and, sometimes,
the essences of a task companions,
who shows up, right out of the ethers,
and, separate, or all together,
through all the assortment of mediums,
that are present,
they are added, blended, and, move together,
and, when they finally come to arrrange themselves,
on what was, originally,
nothing more, than, a blank canvas/or slate,
whatever was not,
in the beginning,
all comes together, in the end ...
the alpha creates the omega

there is nothing more fascinating,
than watching an aritisan create,
and, then, looking at a painting,
and, wondering,
just what went through the mind
and heart of all of its creators

so, much more than just a simple stroke
this painting up of the world,
with your assortment of eXpressions
is what makes,
the reflection of your inside worlds
cascade to the outside,
and, the shining you put out to the rest of us,
is the gift of a presence,
that is ageless, and, timeless,
and, lasts for an eternity
for to do that, is to create a master_piece,
with all the assortment of pieces you can gather ...
bringing them all in, and, creating a wholeness that lasts

be a piece of peace
brightest blessings

(reminds me of something i channeled one night,
for a man, who is a famous artist, in the UK,
who orig. painted shepherds of arcadia)

Burning Monk was inspired by a 1963 event in which a Buddhist monk self-immolated to protest the mistreatment of Buddhists by the government of South Vietnam. Today, the turmoil surrounding Tibet, the recent mass protests by monks in Myanmar, a lingering war in Iraq that has been compared (rightly or wrongly) to Vietnam, invests Burning Monk with an eerie pertinence. But politics in Burning Monk is less the theme than the subtext for a broader spiritual metaphor.

Hah awesome work on here!

I mostly do 3D art, most of which isn't anything special. But heres a 2D drawing I did on a drawing applet using just my mouse, no tablet. Thats the reason some of the tetrahedrons are skewed! hehe.

I'm impressed with how creative all of your works are. I typically do 2-D work the old fashioned way (oil, chalk, charcoal, etc). Sadly, I'm just now coming up to present time technologically, so I'll have to share at a later time. It's good to know that the arts will go on.

A good picture Andre

But Usaine Bolt is a cheater, tell me what you want.
In 2000 everyone believed that Marion Jones is a super-human and now she's in prison.

If Jamaica would have the same Anti-Doping controls as other countries no gold medal would have gone to Jamaica.

Look what happened to Greece and Bulgaria, and even to the USA.

Sorry for that.


But your picture looks nice.

Well, my favorite is Photoshop, but I practically use the majority of the graphics and web design programs such as Illustrator, InDesign, QuarkXPress, CorelDRAW, Freehand, Dreamweaver, Flash and Visual Web.

No problem.

It is quite understandable given the times that he has posted that many would think that he is taking drugs. Personally, I think his feats are quite phenomenal, but I don't really take Track and Field that seriously as I have lost faith in the Anti-Doping Programs controlled by the governing bodies.

That said, I still it would be prudent to establish his guilt through evidence first before distributing accusations. Bolt is worshiped like a God here, I do hope for his sake and the entire nation that he is clean.

But we shall see what we shall see.

You're right Andre.


But everyone involved in track and field says that.
The 4th of the Olympic Iron Man said: "the 100m competition was a big hoax!"

Look at Lance Armstrong,
he never got caught in the act but everyone knows that he cheated.
And after he announced his comeback for the next Tour de France,
all newspapers headlined: "An EPOchal regress in the battle against Doping!"
