“The Temple of My Soul” watercolor painting and text by Erik Kaye,
copyright 2017 (note: its one day ahead in Japan where Erik lives! Happy New Year!)
“A man meditates amidst a boiling storm-ridden sea.
He projects himself beyond the heavy fog into a cold, clear nighttime sky, surrounded by other meditaters. In this astral plane, all that remains tangible of him is his kundalini, his spinal life-force, manifest here
as a marble temple emerging from the mist, occupied by unseen suplicants. A dragon gyres around his temple in protection.” Erik Kaye continues to say: “I plan to do more versions of this image. The meditating man is a recurring theme of mine.”
Erik Kaye’s Real Autobiography:
“I made a decision when I was in college that has defined my life. I decided not to pursue a career in Art until I first overcame a mysterious condition in my life that finally turned out to be Adult ADD. I thought I could just coast on secondary jobs, working in print shops and later, teaching English-as-a-Foreign-Language in Japan, until the inevitable completion of my real work, ADD-Busting. Which never came, at least not until now, that I’m in my 60s. But such is the way of art; painting is a solitary avocation that is as much about the transformative journey as it is about acquiring technical skill.” See Erik Kaye’s website for more on his amazing art by clicking: https://erikkayeart.wordpress.com/
