Cloud Water Blossom
Full color Dharma Wheel artist's print
Available framed or unframed
When a flower blooms, and I look directly into the blossom, it’s as if I am looking into another life. The life isn’t mine – past, present or future. It is, instead, evidence of a greater lifecycle; one that extends beyond sentient beings and where there is no suffering. A life with no ability to acknowledge time or love or be mindful, but a life nonetheless.
This wheel was originally created in full color and, like many, the final design was accidental. That said, when I stepped back, thinking the wheel was finished, I realized that I’d forgotten the eight spokes. I had a perfect, brilliant, floral circle without the most important part of the Dharma Wheel. It was beautiful but without substance.
I added eight spokes, subtracted the color and the blossom opened into a sublime wheel you could find nurtured in hothouse or laying at the edge of the waves on sandy beach or drifting in the sky, next to towering nimbus clouds that reflect sun, shade the ground and sometimes envelope people flying through the sky surrounded by diamonds.
