Maiko Mamehana III

Acrylic on canvas

The last try.

I say she is harder to paint than Mona Lisa. Mona Lisa smiles with her lips; the Geisha smiles with her eyes.

Mother


She's my aunt.

My mom had a dream in which she went up a pedestrian bridge but came back down because it started to tremble.

The World Is A Barren Place

Acrylic on canvas
2012-02-29
The world is not abundant
Our existence is in empty space
We only have ourselves
Goal in living is to reproduce
And explore the world that we exist in
And create something new
When we dance or sing
We fly higher closer to God

Apology of Socrates

"I am almost ashamed to speak of this, but still I must say that there is hardly a person present who would not have talked better about their poetry than they did themselves. That showed me in an instant that not by wisdom do poets write poetry, but by a sort of genius and inspiration; they are like diviners or soothsayers who also say many fine things, but do not understand the meaning of them."
