24″ x 36″. Oil on canvas. Private Gift.
Here, a slight angle is floated just above the ocean of Santa Barbara during a full moon meditation with a Himalayan monk and other meditators (the latter persons not depicted in this study).
This is my first “wet on wet” oil painting, a majority of it whipped up in a day not waiting for it to dry due to an impromptu birthday gift for a magnificent fellow. The creation was a surprise for myself as well! The painting was actually publicly presented quite wet. This piece is part of my Meditative Art Series (MAS); this first study, a concerted effort to continue to auto-didactly sharpen my painting happenings and one of many future studies of a full moon meditation with an ordained Himalayan monk on the beaches of Santa Barbara.
