Welcome to Beloved Meher Baba Art Cards
In the late 80's a work associate had me scan an old photograph of his great-grandmother and try to restore it. It came out very well and I showed the results to a very dear and very old friend. He was amazed at what the computer could do to repair an old torn and stained photo. Not long after, he suggested that I bring Meher Baba's image into the computer and work with it. I was terrified, but eventually built up my courage and the result is what you see on these web pages.
Each of the paintings of Beloved Avatar Meher Baba began with a single scanned photograph of his image which was then colored and handpainted in Photoshop. In some cases, as many as 9 photographs have been combined to create a piece of art. Please keep in mind that the paintings you will see are only as good as your computer screen will allow.
I have made these computer generated paintings into cards which are mounted on different colored mattes on white or cream linen cardstock with matching envelopes. I choose the color of cardstock for each card which I feel works best to enhance Baba's image.
All I can say is that I believe Meher Baba is the Christ returned. He is Matraiya, the Living Buddha returned, and He is the World Teacher come back yet again to free us from illusion by helping us realize fully the God within.
"I was Rama, I was Krishna, I was this One, I was that One, and now I am Meher Baba . . . I am that Ancient One whose past is worshipped and remembered, whose present is ignored and forgotten and whose future (Advent) is anticipated with great fervour and longing."
