This workshop teaches you how to create a Painting of a Buddha according to the principles of ancient Tibetan iconometry.
This is a great opportunity to create your own artwork to decorate your home, according to your preferred colors and the interior design of your space. The painting of a Buddha will be a combination of the Tibetan traditional method and modern free style, resulting in a uniquely beautiful Contemporary Tibetan Art piece that you will create with us.
Last weekend as I wandered around town I noticed some people wearing dust masks trying to protect themselves from the smoky environment due to Camp Fire, the most destructive wildfire in California history. On the other hand I saw others, some walking with their children, as if it were a typical weekend shopping day. Every day since then has become progressively worse with many schools closed and events cancelled today. I came down with a cold this week but can’t tell if my coughing is from the cold or from the environment. It does seem really bad outside, right?
How are you coping with all this smoke? Do you wear a mask outside? If so, is it the recommended N95 type? Try to stay indoors more? (I read that many indoor places don’t provide much protection either!) Is this going to become more common in the future?

It’s Like No Other Mattress. That’s because TEMPUR® material is not typical memory foam. Our proprietary formulation changed the way the world sleeps. TEMPUR material responds to your body’s temperature, weight and shape for truly personalized comfort and support. As it conforms to your body, TEMPUR material minimizes pressure points that keep you awake. TEMPUR® material dramatically reduces motion transfer so your sleep partner’s movement won’t disturb you.
