Buddha with Koi

oil on canvas, 2014, 24"w x 24"h

I wanted this painting of the figure of the Buddha and the solitary koi to produce a quieting and meditative effect on the viewer. On a bright sunlit day, the reflections on the water give it added depth and mystery and perhaps cause one to contemplate the more complex issues of life. I hope that this painting portrays a place that is calming and peaceful, somewhere to pause and be thankful. When I take the time to stop and observe my fish in this setting, I always come away feeling positive and hopeful.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
