Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

...and now for something a little different.... Many visit here on this day who probably miss the remainder of the shenanigans at the YAMster's hutch. Big Day on Sunday just gone. If you are at all interested in the story leading up to this, then by all means drop back there and have a gander. It's pretty wordy though. Which most of you are trying to avoid today.  So here is the 'jugged' version of events.

ॐ YAM-yum has opened.

At that place you will find all sorts of goodies based upon my graphic art...

.......such as these mandala cards

You saw the original photo of this a few weeks back... the reflections on the water of Leith.

I took to the image and brought out several new and interesting "gaze pools"

There will be some stuff still recognisable as photography. Just.

A key aim is to provide images which will keep the eye (and therefore the mind) focused and pondering on the beauty of things and what lies behind

The floral offerings are already proving to be a hit!

Fine art prints, canvasses etc
Cushions, totes, satchels
Mugs, travel mugs
Tech-gadget covers
Duvet covers, leggings, scarves

Many of the images are from a few photographs only, worked and re-worked.

There is repetition of pattern in multiple colour-ways; this is partly so that folk can decorate according to their existing theme, mixing and matching, but also so that a new or statement piece can be brought in to life and home. Colouring the air. Subtle chakra stuff.

The plains act as cool pools...

...before diving into ever deeper spirals and celtic-like knottings and frayings.

Some of the patterns have been further manipulated to create more intricate, large fabric design ....

It will be a shifting, turning, ever-refreshing and constantly growing stock.

Thanks for your interest!  It nearly undid me trying to get it organised.... but that whole story is back on Sunday. Am getting over it.  Has your week been as productive???


  1. We know that getting this all set up was a "PAIN" but OH MY how BEAUTIFUL everything will be... we just love ALL these pictures and know that they will soon be full works of ART. LOVELY to Look at... and they are so CALMING.

    1. Hari Om
      Thank you guys! ....maybe Roxy would like to consult me about interior decoration??? Yxx

  2. We received your email about the shop. Everything looks beautiful and extraordinary! Wish you the best of luck!

  3. Wonderful stuff here - full of light and color!
    Thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/04/french-corner-bakery.html

  4. How nice that the organizing is done and now it's show off time! Very well done!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. These are interesting pictures...


  6. I always love your photos! Teresa from NanaHood

  7. Fascinating!

    For me is really difficult to read a long text in English. Would you add a Google Translator to your blog, please?
    It's easy: go on Dashboard to "Layout" - add the gadget "Google Translator" - thats just all. Would be for me very useful, maybe for other visitors too?
    Have a nice time

    By the way: the video is prohibited, must go to youtube to see it (I've gone), maybe you can still change the setting?

    1. Hari OM
      Oh Thank you so much for the feedback Mascha!!! One cannot know unless one is told.... I do have Google Chrome as my browser to it automatically translates yours and other foreign language blogs for me but I guess not every one uses that - so I will do exactly as you ask!!!

      I am uncertain why the video is not working as I have not put any restriction upon it - it is full public view on tubular - I will recheck it.... Of course there are some countries/regional parts of Google which get restriction for no reason that is necessarily understood.... It is only a show of some other of my patterns - and for that you could just click to the RedBubble page - viewing is absolutely free!!! YAM xx

  8. Such wonderful photos, great colors!
    Karren@Oh My Heartsie Girl

  9. These are brilliant and what great effect they have :-)

    Have a colourfultastic week :-)

  10. You are so artistic. so talented and I always enjoy looking at your work.
    I meant to mention when replying the previous post how much I love Licky the Lucky stuffie....almost thought he/she was real at first.
    Hope you are feeling more rested and that horrid neuralgia has gone forever. xx

  11. I love the red one, that would be perfect as a giant canvas print!!!

  12. Congrads on the opening of the shop. I too received your e-mail about it :)

  13. Everything here is so lovely! Mandalas as so in right now and I can see why as they are so calming! Thanks for sharing =)

  14. Happy Belated Birthday to you.
    I do hope it was everything you were hoping for and then cake too.
    Your artwork is so colorful I love then purple wave like pattern.
    Thank you always coming to the blog and your kind comments.
    Linda and Cinnamon
