Jane, I am enjoying your Buddha right now while I am reading a wonderful book on Buddhist wisdom ... I love the red and gold tones which lend him a really divine touch. The smooth and generous expression of his face warms my heart. However, my wordly words are - as always - by far not sufficient to express the "things behind", which is the reason why we use art instead of our speech to express our feelings and visions. Superb work! With very best wishes, Andreas, L/F

Jane Small replied:

I really love your personalized take on this lovely Buddha dear Jane; your color scheme is spectacular and the humanization is so very appealing my friend - I get a sense of femininity and endless wisdom - the lighting which you have incorporated into this lovely portrait adds so much and really brings this beauty to life!....Very special work my sweet friend; you amaze me and inspire me - thank you!

Jane Small replied:

Thank you so much Joyce. I had wanted to paint a Buddha portrait for years before I finally did this one.Somehow,it had to turn up at the right moment,and not before!!

Mijas, Ma - Spain

What I like about this Buddha is the way he is humanised and made to come alive and be right in front of us. The iconography helps us to recognise who he is (hair style, clothing, no beard, youthfulness etc) but unlike traditional Indian and oriental sculptures, whether sleeping, teaching or meditating, the stylised art almost always makes the Buddha feel somehow far away and transcendent, something to aspire to but well beyond reach. In this image, I feel that I am having a conversation with him. Also, there is something vaguely androgynous about this Buddha, something about the angle in which s the head is held to the shoulders. Could this Buddha be a woman? Maybe not but it open to a viewer to interpret, is it not? Indian classical iconography was often androgynous or even included masculine and feminine features, not in a modern trans-gender sense at all, but in a philosophical intent to bridge the gender gap and point out that spiritual realisation is not a male preserve but is within reach of all humans. However, this aspect combined with a sense of accessbility makes the portrait refreshingly modern. The whole interpretation adds something not often seen in Buddhist art or art in which the Buddha is the subject. Amazing work! Instant fv

Jane Small replied:

Arjun,what a deeply interesting and thoughtful perspective you bring to everything you do.I shall treasure your comment on my Buddha.In fact I am now seeing him with fresh eyes and new insights having read your words. I love what you say about "androgynous." I love to think that this Buddha is accessible for you to have a conversation with ! Thank you so very much for taking time to view and write this. It has really made my day..J.

St. Michael/Austria, Ca - Austria

Jane, your Buddha is totally impressive with that knowing expression. Very fine work - vf - Dagmar

Jane Small replied:

Dagmar,that is such a coincidence,as I have just read your interesting note about using the colour "red". This painting probably has more red than any others of mine apart from poppies! I'm delighted that you like my buddha.Thank you so much.
