Michael! that garden buddha looks positively serene...you did a great job of painting him!
Thank you Sally!Good luck at your Ottawa show!Go Bruins!Michael
The Buddha seems content in winter cold and summer warmth - so serene in his inner musings. I was just looking through a book of Sargent's paintings in Italy - he loved to paint statues and was masterful as depicting the light across their varied surfaces. I think you are following in his footsteps, Michael!
Hello Susan!Thank you so very much for stopping by and leaving such wonderful words!"Serene" certainly is the word! Imagine me being in the same sentence as my art buddy, Sargent!

(J love all your art but this latest with all the figures is amazing!)We are so lucky to love art and to make art!)Take care Susan!Michael

Hi Michael,Love the light and shadows you have captured on your little Buddha. He emanates a lovely serenity come snow or shine! It's great to see the contrasts in seasons. The blankets of snow you had over winter looked so magical. It looks like you are having lovely warm weather now!Great to see how prolific you are Michael!Happy painting!Art Cobber Wendy
Hello Mate!I am so happy to hear from you Wendy! I am glad you like my little Buddha painting! Every day I check him out in my little garden and thought someday I would paint him. Glad I finally did!You are right! The seasonal changes are amazing. I love them all! Don't really have a favorite! Well maybe I do have a favorite...fall, winter, spring, summer! Yes, warmer weather and plenty of rain. Our first tropical storm of the season! Almost five inches of rain! Good for the vegetation!Happy painting to you Wendy!Art Cobber Michael
