Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Paint, Paper, Manipulated on Canvas, Paper, Other.

This is another one of my insect series that was originally inspired by my days of creating bug collections while in 4-H as a youth.
The painting Chinese Monk comes from the Buddhist belief of reincarnation. In this story, the praying mantis was once a Chinese Monk who didn't live up to his religious ecxpectations and was reborn as an insect. I am not Buddhist, but I would think if you were reborn as an insect, I think being a praying mantis would be a "good sign" of redemption and luck. There are some elements of collage in this painting and "Good Sign" is a part of that.

The scene of the painting on the front continues all around to the edges, so there is no need for a frame.
