Young Buddha - Fire of Enlightenment
Oil based Latex paint on Canvas (48"x60") 2007. Dallas, TX.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating this Buddha painting. I had no idea this is what the end result will be. I used stucco and lots of colors and applied them on the canvas then tumbled it around and then hosed everything off with a garden hose and then reapplied everything and hose it again. In the end I was rewarded with a beautiful riot of colors and an amazing texture. I kept it like that for a few days and sat in front of it to analyze the patterns and textures in it. Suddenly I saw the Buddha form in there.
It looked like a young Buddha is getting tested by the fire of enlightenment.
