Artwork Description

This piece is 10" by 16" and was created for the WetCanvas tarot deck, which will reproduce the image at 2.5" by 4." The Chinese bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, stands in front of the yin yang. In her left hand, she holds a white lotus. In her right hand, she holds a scroll of the dharma. I put a lot of symbolic elements in this, but I think it’s fun to let people find them on their own.

Thanks Cheryl! Yes, I pretty much live over at WetCanvas. Smile I wish I could say that I'll be adding more soon, but I've had a horrible artist block. I haven't completed any piece of art since December. Sad

Thank you! I hadn't done transparent fabric in colored pencil before. It was an interesting process.

Thank you James. You aren't bad with the colored pencils either. Smile Loved your Peter Pan.

I don't think that's weird at all. I really wanted to create a sensuous feeling with her body lines and make her attractive, but not too young and conventionally pretty. So, I really liked your comments. Smile

Ah, this might be weird but the thing I like most about this piece is her body. The proportions are nice and her form is just beautiful. I also love her face, she has her very own personality and still manages to be gorgeous. Brilliant.

Very lovely work. Her scarf is really beautifully done, seeing the patterns behind and through it...very lovely design.
