As well as vajrayana artifacts 13 Sky Signature calligraphies were sold in Finland by Bar-ché and Me-sel, and several more found new owners during the retreat.
My lovely wife Shé-zér has also added a few pennies to the coffers in her one woman Dig-For-Dharma campaign - by selling 50 strawberry plants for the appeal.
On it's own it won't keep Jerry from the door (but it will give Margo something to peer at over the hedge row).
An Odd Boy
Aro Ling some time in the summer, when volume two of An Odd Boy is launched. These images are a collection of works, that have been extensively recoloured and restored by Rinpoche using a host of tools available through the wonder that is Photoshop. Up until this point they were only visible via Facebook, but thanks to the work of Lama Shardrol's sangha in the USA, they are now available on canvas.
Some of the source images were black and white, or of very low resolution, and have been touched up, sharpened and refined. The Jimi Hendrix image was in fact sourced from a photograph of an original painting by Rinpoche himself - and again has been retouched for the Blues Masters collection. Each image has had something like 60 to 100 hours of work put into it, before being printed to canvas in medium and large scale, for hanging.
