Ashes to ashes, paint to paint

Today was the memorial service for Leonard Knight, creator of Salvation Mountain. Sort of an odd, not very well organized affair, which is in keeping, I guess, with the general vibe of the Slabs.

His ashes

His shoes

His guitar

Leonard's ashes were mixed with paint and the attendees daubed his cremains on Salvation Mountain so that he'd always be a part of his work. I think that's an excellent idea.
