I began this painting with a transparency image of a buddha that I had digitally manipulated. I decided to put the figure in a landscape with a tree (with rice paper and gold leaf embellishments). While in the trance of painting, Buddha became a girl (unintentionally). Then I decided I liked the idea. If it’s true that the Buddha has had many many incarnations, then I’m sure some of them have been as a woman!
