Jan 19


Blind Contour Buddhas*. I threw water on them ... listen to them scream, "I'm melting! I'm melting!"
*Blind Contour drawings are done looking at the object, but not the paper. See links to scads of them over at Inkfinger.

Such happy BCs. :o) These are really neat Hashi. I can see why they made you smile. And I have to say "again"...I just LOVE your journal pages. They are so bright and wonderful.

The Buddha-melting is such fun! And I love the white daisies on that background. Your blog is fun to visit.

I don't know about the other 3, but one of those guys is definitely channeling Yoda!

Very cool ... that's my next exercise ... blind contours ... looks like a great way to train your eye, plus a lot of fun!

This brought a mental image of you that made me chuckle, and somehow made blind contours less intimidating!

Hashi, I think your Buddahs are adorable. And the colours in the daisies painting are simply MAGICAL! Great talent.

The buddhas are very sweet. I like Yoda on the bottom left.

I really like what you've been doing with transformed books. I've been working with them since the early/ middle 90s and find it to be so much fun to create a portable little gallery. Wonderful.

OH my goodness...These little jello buddhas have made even a sunny Pennsylvania day sunnier! I can just imagine your delight when you glanced down and saw their happy little meltie bodies. Hashi, I love your blog... I visit it a lot even though I write very little. :-)
