Does a dragon still sing from within a withered tree?
- Dogen Zenji (1200 – 1253)

Another image with a zen theme, after the Chinese or Japanese pen and wash paintings. I used all my own photographs and textures for this image, all taken with a Canon EOS 450D and layered and manipulated in Photoshop CS3.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
