Process Paintings for Boy Buddha Brings Serenity
Everyday we are all faced with a path we have not known before. There is no normal or familiar existence as we have all experienced in the past.
This can be considered either an adverse or adventurous road.
Painting all these new reflections during a time of uncertainty exemplifies this choice we make as we walk together these days.
I started this palette knife piece a month ago and I loved all the color and movement and actually thought this is beautiful just like it is.
To my surprise, I picked it up the last week and I could see eyes peeking out from behind the stripes of vibrant color. They grew into faces of young woman of all ethnicities.
I sat with the image for a day and then came across a face I loved while I was working on my piece about Tibet. It spoke to me and seems to say,
Peace enters the pocket of your core and you hear the truth."
This was something I wrote for the Mustard books I created years ago, yet it resonates even more today.
This sweet child's face helps me breathe out and relax even when fear tries to creep into my head.
He reminds me to make each day an adventure!
