MISHIBINIJIMA with ART DISCIPLINE:
Forty nine years comes with Mishibinijima milestones one being, sometime time during the middle of March I'll refrain myself from creating any Mishmountain originals till the month of Mishibinijima fiscal year of September, this hiatus allows Mishmountain art style recuperation because this art style needs enormous mental energy.

Made a quick stop to visit my Sweet Mother before leaving for ROME
Mishmountain original in the Vatican Art Collection in Rome.
Mishibinijima private audience with Pope John Paul II
STATEMENT: From start to finish everyday between, ceremonial smudge performed to each Mishmountain original since 1969. Art contains images of spiritual protection because my mother taught, these pieces find their way to other family homes and need protection from negative energies to whomever owns it.
