Emerging Buddha is exactly that. This was a tiny experiment with layering colors and textures. I really had no idea where it was going and all of a sudden a face appeared. Just with a few defining strokes, Emerging Buddha came forth out of the light. The wonderful thing about this painting is it's depth and texture. Depending on which way you turn the painting and look at it, the face changes. She was a lovely find and sits on my fireplace mantel waiting for her home.
