As I wrote to Ihsan, I put a lot of work into balancing out the various areas of the piece. I'm glad you like it, Chris.

I tried really hard on the composition, Ihsan. you made my day! I was leafing through gardinging magazine when I saw this small photo of a Buddha in a garden. I just had to paint it. As for the story behind it: I guess the warrior who owned the sword has decided to offer up his/her life of a killer for a like of peace......

Thanks, Socar! I've been trying really hard to work on my artistic faults trying some slightly different subjects. Also, I've recently aquired Painter 8. It has great oil brushes. More to come in the near future....!

I really like the composition on this, it at least looks like you put some real thought into this one. ^_^

Superb composition, almost photo-realistic rendering - very intriguing to know the story its trying to tell.

Great stuff! I adore the textures and colours in this one...and those graceful flowers. I've been enjoying your recent work a lot.

Art at its best.
