She rests quietly in her stillness of mind after the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion have been finally extinguished. She has found her Nirvana.
I created it in beautiful pearl blues over a hand-brushed pearl base layered on a specially-prepared canvas surface. Metallic mediums mixed into my paints create a glistening effect with the changing light, creating a new experience with each viewing. The graphic and energy burst is phosphorous – capturing light throughout the day and emitting a glow of energy. In this painting, my muse is portrayed as life-size.
Completed on November 30th, NIRVANA is my fifth figurative painting for 2012 and features the beautiful Lynsey as my muse.
The graphic across the top of this painting is the binary code for “GOD”
