Whew, I just got this Buddha done under the wire for Karin's challenge this week, deadline is tomorrow night and we've had 2 weeks to do it. Of course I just started it this morning. Our daughters have been home for Thanksgiving and it has been hard to focus on painting. I chose to focus on this face because I always enjoy doing faces and I have very little floral experience. Besides, how could I compete with Vern Schwarz' hydrangeas? Impossible. So here is Siddhartha, trying to keep his mind on only the purest of thinks. Of course "he" looks like a woman but unless I'm mistaken, Buddha is a dude. 20" x 14", oil on canvas...enjoy.
