The road to enlightenment consists of a complex series of simple paths.
A contemplative sand-gardener unexpectedly achieves satori. Six colors on cream.

Nicely done, but I would like this way better without the old man in the picture. The imagery is recognizable enough without him there. Maybe leave the rake in, but not necessary.

I like celery.

Seriously? Hmmm... I really thought of the overall concept with him in it, but it's a layer I could supress and resub. Huh.

Huh, I'm amazed, twice! First that this has as many votes as it does given the apparent lack of interest. And second, that it doesn't have more, since I'd been rather counting on many folks' love of Asiana. Either I was wrong, or my execution just didn't cut it. I realize now the composition is awkward. Any other advice is more than welcome!

Hi Paige!

Sometimes getting votes is so agonizing, I will be like, I am NOT turning this computer off until that number changes, then it changes and I am like, "Thankyou!" to some unknown (kindhearted!) person!!

I really love the serenity of this piece. The ONLY thing that could possibly improve on it's beauty for me would be more trees in the back...he is looking up and contemplating the world etc. and that little banzaii tree just gives people a taste of what you have to offer, don't stop at a taste,give us a meal!

Of course, I tend to go overboard on the extra details (SO is my advice correct? I really can't say.)and I am thinking of trying to hold some of that back this weekend...might not happen!


It really is beautiful the way it is Paige, I love the sand and the gentleman character, the tree was a tease though thats my only thought about possible improvement.

Will I ever stop ? Yes!...And I do Love this piece!
