A moonlit beach on a starry night?
Nope, seagull poop on the side of my car. (You can make art out of most anything.)
Currently reading about the art of Miksang, from Robert Genn's Twice Weekly Newsletter:
"The art of Miksang was begun as a meditational tool by Shambala Buddhists, but it has implications for painters and other creative people. The idea is to find joy and awareness by attending to the minor and seemingly insignificant--the colors, patterns, and textures that exist in the close-up world. Miksang is a Tibetan word that means "good eye." Shambalas think widespread use might lead to more compassionate and enlightened societies."
For examples of Miksang and links to sites, go to:
I've been taking such photos for some time now, and didn't realize there was a name for them. I find it fascinating. Now WHERE did I put the Windex?
