Sight & Sound - Oriental

These two still lifes - both of them Photoshop manipulations of photos taken this afternoon - were inspired by the Impressionist and post-Impressionist fascination with all things Oriental.

Music: "The Dusk Song of the Fisherman" by the group Ancient Future, from their 1993 CD Asian Fusion. This is a traditional Chinese song (Ching dynasty) arranged for guitar and gu zheng, the Chinese board zither.
