Art: Anapurna Dream I by Artist John Seed
During 1999 I had the incredible experience of trekking in Nepal with my father. The sight of the Himalayas, including the Anapurna range was breathtaking, and my memory of the feelings is artistically re-created by this print. If you are curious, I do practice Tibetan style meditation, and that too may be reflected in this image. The image was created using Photoshop software, drawn with a mouse. There is no photography of any kind involved. It is printed with the "Iris Giclee" method of printing, in a very careful process which uses archival inks and paper.

Available as a single print, or as a diptych with Anapurna Dream II
