Buddha, Oil painting, 9"x12" by Aruna Nitin Sarode

The weekend is over and my Buddha painting is complete too. I like this colored version better than the earlier black & white. I like the feeling of peace and calm in his face.

Thank you

Thanks Tanya and the wonderful staff at David Adler Music and Arts Center for a successful art show. Thank you to all who visited the show and those who supported and encouraged online and offline.
I will share my next project with you soon. Is it a flower, landscape, still life, portrait...? For now I'll just say बुद्धं शरणं गच्छामि (Buddham sharanam gacchami).

Chicago Botanic Gardens - Work in progress...

Almost done...Need a bench to sit in the garden and more refinements. Come to think of it, I used to be always on the move, not wanting to miss a beautiful flower or scene, never used the bench unless I was posing for a picture:), but now I sit sometimes, smell the roses and take in the view without thinking about missing out on stuff. Is it the aging process or the fact that I have visited the Chicago Botanic Garden at least a 50 times!
Work in progress...
