In the mountains of Northern Thailand rising above the city of Chiang Mai, peaks are often caught in an early morning sea of fog. Written as ทะเลหมอก in Thai, this mist often covers the summit of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest peak. On the mountain slope two Buddhist stupas, often referred to as chedis in Thailand, sit to honor the monarchs of Thailand. Known as Phra Mahathat Naphamethanidon and -Nophamethanidon, the chedis were named to reflect the power of the sky and the grace of the land. My painting Between the Mountains and the Clouds is set in this mist shrouded landscape. Seven Buddhist monks in saffron robes appear and then seem to merge into the air. The color of their robes is considered the color of illumination or satori – the highest wisdom. In Buddhist thought the number 7 can refer to the Seven Factors of Enlightenment, such as calm and equanimity and also the Seven Universal Mental Constituents, such as feeling and perception. Echoing the power of the sky and the grace of the land, elements of the blue sky in Between the Mountains and the Clouds are painted with the precious stone Lapis Lazuli ground into a fine powder and mixed with linseed oil to form oil paint. In traditional Buddhist wisdom Lapis stones were considered to bring inner peace and freedom from negative thought.
