Painting Black Manjushri

Here is a video showing the process I used to arrive at the finished image of Black Manjushri.

This was a tough image to create, and I really struggled up until the last few days. One night it all came together and it was all down hill after that. I am glad that I pursued the image as I saw it in my mind, it was a difficult process but I learned a lot from it and I now feel much more confident as a landscape painter. I hope you also like the image.

The practice of Black Manjushri, as it was passed on to me through the holy words of my Lama, is all about healing. Its a little like Medicine Buddha in that way. To those of you who are unwell physically or mentally, I send you my love and offer this image to help speed your recovery and send you swiftly on the path to enlightenment and the end of suffering.

With love,
