Takashi Murakami - The 500 Arhats

Could have stayed in this exhibition all day.  The details, the background, the use of colour, humour, never seen anything like this 100 metre long painting.  Entertainment and inspiration.  Food for the soul and the eyes.  Wow.

Walking vibrantly

Nothing like the feeling of walking through such colour, the sound and smell of fallen leaves.

Monkeys on a Car

There was a large family, hanging out around this car, there were more running around the trees and crossing the road.  Quite a find.

Love this lamp, it's an old one, the one's he makes now are much more elaborate and colourful, but the simplicity of this one suits my yoga space wonderfully.

Classic Winter Zao

So glad I was able to get up the mountain this evening.  I had the afternoon off, and the sun was out so I raced up the mountain to catch the last rays on the snow.
