The Gospel–Good News

Sawadee Khrap

Here is my Theology on the meaning of Christ’s Gospel.  A Non-Dualistic view as stated in Genesis 1 of the Bible and taught by Jesus “The Christ”   What did  Jesus mean when He said  “In my Father’s house are many mansions, I go to prepare a place for you”?   Consider::

  • Hindu-Advaita, Vedanta
  • Buddhist – Mahayana,Theravada, Vajrayana
  • Chinese – Taoism
  • Judaism-Kabbalah
  • Islam – Sufism
  • New Age – ACIM,    all all the other non-dualistic schools of every “Religion”

Would be glad to answer any questions. Let me know in the comments.Timeline-Projection-single

Nanee’s and The Erotic Garden

Sawadee Khrap

On March 3rd, Simon and I took a quick trip to Mae Rim and visited  2 locations.

At both places we met the owner and artist who developed the attraction.  They are located right next to each other in beautiful Mae Rim valley area.  What a day to relax and meet two wonderful people , each with inspiring stories. – Great places to visit and NOT the usual tourist traps, but unique sites of Unseen Thailand.  Seeing is believing, so I really recommend that you visit them yourself on your next trip here..

Nanee’s:

Bristle Brushes

Sawadee Khrap

Started using the “Bristle brushes” in Photoshop for my paintings.  Much better control and effect.  This is a scene I saw on a recent trip a few weeks ago to “The Giant”  treehouse restaurant in Doi Saket, north of Chiang Mai.  A small coffee shop on the way had this display in their parking lot – just had to paint it.  Digital Acrylic Oil painting —  15 inch x 10 inch.Garden-Bike-web

P.S.   Went back with other friends yesterday and had car trouble, my 4 wheel drive unit locked up and I had to be towed back to the repair shop – still without a car so I had time to finished this painting I was working on – funny it was a scene from my last visit there – maybe a omen.

Hmong Village–Doi Pui

Sawadee Khrap

This Digital Acrylic Oil painting, 10in x 15in canvas HmoungVillage-web6is my interpretation of a great view I spotted while on a trip to visit the Hmong village at Doi Pui with Simon last week.  I particularly liked the contrast of the brilliant red poinsettias against the blue sky and the rustic building.

Getting back to painting

Sawadee Khrap

New computer running, I started back painting.  My first task was to finish a painting of a “Smiling Buddha”.  I think I saw it somewhere near Sukhothai but not sure.  I did use the new plug-in AD-Impasto which gives me the ability to present an impasto simulation effect to the paint – mild but very noticeable at full size  – this painting is at high printing resolution 300 dpi, 10 in x 15 in –Digital Acrylic Oil paint.Buddha-web

  • 500 GB  SSD  Boot  C:
  • GEFORCE  GT-1030 Video card   2 GB VRAM

So far running excellently, re-loading and setting up programs.   Should be fully set-up in a week, but operational now.

Mathematics made easy

Sawadee Khrap

What is 100%?  What does it mean to give  MORE than 100%?  Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?   We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.  How about achieving 103%?  What makes up 100% in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:
       If:   A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 
                  and is represented as:   1  through  26.
Then:
H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K           8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =  98%
And
K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E   11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =  96% 
But
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E              1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 =  100%
And
B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T           2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20   =   103%

Now look how far “ass kissing”will take you.  
A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G        1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7   =   118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while   Hard work   and   Knowledge   will get you close, and Attitude will get you there.

It’s the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top!!!  Now you know why Politicians are where they are!
