Buddhist inspiration

For the past couple weeks, I have been working on this picture.

Last year, I saw a banyan tree for the first time in my life and fell in love with it. It was amazing and very humbling. There was something magical and calming about it.  Just the idea of any banyan tree being connected to a single tree... it's pretty cool. I would like to see the banyan tree that Buddha attained enlightenment. Just think... these trees have been around for centuries, "seeing" the times change. They have been a part of many lives.

This drawing was done with the inspiration I felt seeing the banyan tree, and for my deep respect for the Buddha. I wanted to show his spirit and the banyan tree's life become one.

Will be available on etsy soon enough :-)

Just listed on Etsy

After spending long hours, figuring out where to get my prints... I finally posted Lotus Ganesha on Etsy :-)

I feel like I accomplished something this weekend :-)
