A little Siamese cat sits beneath a red torii. She's been playing all day out in the sunshine and now going home to the temple as the sun sets. A pilgrim rests for a moment beneath a twisted pine tree. He plays a flute, contemplating his journey to the Zen Buddhist retreat. Birds fly over the cascading waterfall. This meditation landscape is an original acrylic painting on a stretched canvas (the staple-free sides are painted). It has been varnished to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors.
Personal note: This was the first temple painting I finished after my lovely Balinese kitty, Sky, passed peacefully from old age. I just had to add her to the scene. She loved being outside in the sunshine and I could see her playing there, then going to the temple for her rest.
If you would like hanging wire added to the back of the canvas, please let me know in the notes to seller when you check out. Or, email me right after.
