Hi lovely friends,
I just finished a Mix Media painting which is a face of a Buddha but the Buddha is more lady like because we are all Buddhas in the making. The painting has come to me in various stages.I had heard of this phrase while I was learning Reiki a few years back. Its a translation of the symbol which means "Hon Sha Ze She Nen" It means the Buddha in me greets the Buddha in you. I have been to vipassana a few times so for us Buddha is more of a state of mind. And hence it resonates spiritually even more. The Buddha or the spiritual side of me bows or greets the spiritual side of you". Its probably a reminder that I need to realign myself to the spiritual realm more often. The word Namaste is to remind us that when we greet people may be instead of just a casual greeting it can transcendent into something more powerful and meaning full to make this a lovely world.
The Buddha sketch was done long back in graphite and was waiting in my sketch book to be worked upon at the right time. This Mix Media painting is done on canvas, with a layer of old paper, the garment is tissue. For the face I have used water color and acrylic. For the background I have used a layer of transparent photo ink, oil pastels and acrylic colors. For depth I have added adding charcoal.
Lots of love and Light
