Return To Art; I built A Mini Zen Garden

I am always updating the little shrine in my living room. I had some sand from my visit to red rock nevada in a jar for over 12 years and finally had a very good use for it. I unscrewed an old wooden art box that held paints, pencil crayons, markers and pastels and filled it up with the sand. Placing buddha inside of a lotus in the centre 🙂 ….

As I continue on my mission for a Fung Shui home I hope this fire element zen garden can bring me some positivity.

Break from poetry back to art day one: A portrait of a young Buddha.

My girlfriend found a big shelf in the alley months ago and looked at me. “Nina you should draw something on this”.

Why not? – I thought; recycled art is right up my alley. My mom had requested that I paint her a portrait of Buddha for her recently purchased home.

I had forgotten this massive shelf awaiting for me in the closet until a few days ago when I decided that ITS RETURN OF THE ARTS. And… I decided to do a speed painting.

Paint your subject as fast as you possibly can! This was the result of my speed painting and although it is far too large for my mother’s liking. Buddha can watch over me from his shrine in my living room.

I love what I created.
