Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

My oil on panel painting, "The Monk's Road" is part of an ongoing series of artworks about seeking peace and justice in a world in need of harmony.

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 "The Monk's Road" is set in this mist shrouded landscape. Three 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.
