For your perusing pleasure: A few of my Buddha paintings on canvas, mixed media art journal pages, and other works of art.
Painting Buddha is healing. Sometimes before I paint a Buddha, I try to get clear on what it is that I would like to bring more of into my life. I set the intention and write down the words on my blank canvas. I wait a few days and then I start my painting. Sometimes, it's a little eerie and I can feel the energy coming through a painting; it's always loving.
Art Journaling has no rules. It’s whatever you want it to be! It's about creative expression and the focus is on process not product. It's about the journey and letting go - embracing the mystery plus it's great therapy! Archetypal images of the sacred feminine seem to emerge on my art journal pages in which I find fascinating.
I’ve always been fascinated by encaustic art and the soft look of it. A very important part of encaustic painting is fusing the wax layers. The image with the rosary beads within this slideshow is an example of an encaustic painting.
