A Promise is a Promise

As promised, here is the rest of my recent Buddha-themed mixed-media/ collage work.

  1. I really, really, like the top piece a *lot*!! beautiful colors!

  2. Thanks, Leah! I'm happy you stopped by. It's great to be able to share stuff "hot out of the studio."

  3. Hi Lynne... so glad you fulfilled your verbal contract and showed us the rest of your Buddha-themed work. I was about to call my lawyer :P ;)
    I love all of them, but the one that resonates deeply for me is the last one... sitting there calmly on that branch, and the (what I believe are) natural striations in the figure's stone (wood?) give the effect of soft shadows from light streaming through the foliage. I think the horizontal (landscape) orientation of the scene also lends itself nicely here.
    Everyone's an art critic, why should I be any different!?

  4. Love the colours and theme. A very natural and beautiful creations.

  5. Hi David, Gee, with Sparkle Mirror being so famious now and advertised on the cover of Vogue and all, I'm just thrilled that you not only had time to stop by but to cough up an art critique as well! I enjoyed reading your comments, especially as they convey ideas that hadn't occurred to me (ie. the horizontal plane lending itself best to a landscape motif). You're right about the striations, they are natural markings in the stone and they became nicely emphasized with the Photoshop treatment.

    Jeez, I'm glad I got these posted before you called your lawyer!

  6. Hi Julie-ann, I'm happy that you like the colours and theme. I enjoy those elements in your art as well!

  7. Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
    I like your art with the words over the eyes, shares some powerful thoughts. Seeing into the mind of the art. Very deep!

  8. Fantastic art,
    my compliments :)

  9. Julie-ann, "Seeing into the mind of the art"--what a wonderful interpretation. Thank you!

  10. Anya, thank you for coming so far to visit my studio! Feel free to bring your cat along next time, although my own cat is rather shy.
