This was a commissioned piece for a collector named Daniel C. in Cocoa Beach, FL.
He asked for something “zen-like.”
So I started the painting, and partway through Maria asked, confused, “Who’s painting is that?”
And I said “It’s Daniel’s from Cocoa Beach.”
She objected, saying “That’s not Zen!” I think she expected a Buddha and lotus flowers.
Though this wasn’t Maria’s idea of Zen, it was mine.
The meaning behind ESSENCE OF LIFE is this:
We all came to earth to love and experience life. At the end of this life your earthly body releases your true self, the Light Body.
The Light Body is pure energy; it can never be created or destroyed, just transformed.
That, to me, is Zen.
Life is good,
