At Jogyesa Temple in Seoul, there is a big stone wheel standing outside the main entrance. A Buddha sits in the middle of a lotus flower. It sort of feels a little like the wheel of fortune. I want to spin it when I see it but it looks like it weighs about a million pounds. I'm a weakling so there will be no spinning. This is another painting for the calender. I've finished 9 and it is starting to take shape. It looks good to me but what the hell do I know.
