Random pictures I played with. The first is a staircase in the Himalayas on a trek in the Annapurna area. The second is of Annapurna South, one of the bigger mountains in Nepal. The third is self-explanatory. And fourth, a shot of Kathmandu from a hilltop temple area.

The big, the small, the young, and the very very old. The mountain is on the Annapurna range...it's a huge one. The detail is from the corner of a Buddhist temple at Kopan Monastery, near Kathmandu. The little boy is from a day care I worked at...he was playing with some broken sunglasses he found on the ground (puts the American kid with his huge chest of plastic store-bought toys into different perspective...). The old man is actually Mongolian...he was visiting the hospital for back pain. He was 82, ancient in a country where the average life expectancy is 60 years old. And he walked the many miles to the clinic...

I'm trying to develop these a bit more...I'd like them to inform my next paintings. This one is about decisions...having too many things to do and feeling obligated to try to make them all work. It's the first one that has extended off the page...I'm wondering if I like that. Things to think about!
