Hi there. I have been looking around to see some inspirations...and I found it! You, You just make everything so beautiful and no matter what is the demand of others... You do something which is so beautiful that it makes me think - what am I waiting for? Art is for art, for Yourself, to feel good, to express what is inside. Thank You for making me see that. I will be looking at Your paintings and drawings over and over again, and I hope that this feeling that I have right now (and which I cannot properly express) will return to me every single time I see Your works.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

You've done justice to the Buddha. I also like how he kinda looks like the dreamer vishnu.

This is stunning. I love the atmosphere of Thailand and you captured it admirably. This is really beautiful and although I'm a Christian I would proudly hang this in my house. Beautiful.

beautiful! the glossy glow on the buddha gives it a nice crystally, surreal look. i've always liked shiny things.

what was the buddha made of?

Thanks for the comment:bow: The buddha was made of Jade, it was absolutely stunning in reality, the photo doesnt do the painting justice. Its in Jason's collection, he really liked it, so we made a deal and swapped paintings. It took a month to paint and I didnt want to part with it so I am glad Jason has it. It was in my Thailand exhibition at the Plant Farm as "Not for Sale" so of course lots of people wanted to buy it. Jason had it hanging in the tattoo shop and he had customers wanting to buy it, another customer had it tattoo'd on his leg. :iconbuddhaplz: :painter::silentkitty:

Its an amazing painting, there's something about it which i can't explain.
its a pretty nice compliment when someone tattoos your work on themself.

A captivating picture with a blue buddha. It has the contrast between the orange background and the blue statue.

What has eyes but cannot see?
What has ears but cannot hear?
What has hands that cannot touch?
And yet he is there.

Thankyou for your comment it was actually jade green, I used viridian but photo came up bluish, I have tried photoshop to correct it, but will have another go. My JasonJacenko DA member has it and its his favorite. He made a deal and we swapped paintings. It was a months work to get all the detail in.
