“Enlightenment IV” represents a close-up of the Buddha at the moment of his enlightenment.
Here I go, drawing with ink again, my old favorite media. “Enlightenment V” is finally bringing Buddha and Jesus together, after I’ve represented them in a separate drawing and painting. I’ve had this idea before my well informed artistic child enlightened me about “Saint Oniisan” or “Saints Young Men” manga and anime. Now I’m a big fan of “Saint Oniisan.”
Companion image to “Crucifixion II.” This is my first watercolors painting in many years.
