After traveling, I usually have a huge urge to create a painting… it was a trip to Seattle to visit my brother that inspired me to paint a Buddha face! Originally, I wanted to create extreme texture and add gold leaf… but sometimes paintings turn out the way they want to be. This one seems to be better as a simple, smooth stone look. Maybe I will do a series of Buddha faces.
UPDATE: This first one here on the left started to look like a roman cupid buddha to me, bahahaha.. so I gave it a sex change, face lift, hairdo, and piercings… looks much better now!
Several of these are inspired by images found on the internet.
The first one was so much fun to paint, I decided to do a series of faces… here is a start to Buddha Face #2 (thumbnail to left). I ended up adding a few layers in paint & gold leafing (below).
Here is a start to Buddha Painting #4 (below)
