a rewind | sunrise and chakra flowers for meditation

“Sometimes our thoughts and feelings take us places we can no longer go … However, in the waking sunrise of a new day, we can, in our meditation, understand our thoughts anew and find places full of insight, rejuvenation, and tranquility”. ~ Walter Smith

In keeping with the pursuit of tranquility and the essence of Zen that I focused on in my recent video entitled “Experiment: Zen Meditation | Landscapes for Well Being”, here is a rewind of a collage with the same theme from 2009. My next post: “variations | sunrise and chakra flowers for meditation”. As in all my pieces in the variation series, I am using this image as a starting point to reach a new compositional insight.

    • Thanks again Chas. This collage is one of my favorites. I was doing a lot of meditation around this time. And some yoga as well ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I thought the figure was a bit like Van Gogh’s painting the the Angelus – I think he has his cap in his hands. I like that moment when the figure is just still in the landscape.
