Essence Of Life by Drew Brophy Nov 2013ESSENCE OF LIFE original painting, medium paint pens on canvas, sized 18″ x 24″.

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,

The Power WIthin Buddha Painting by (c)  Drew Brophy Nov 2013

This painting is the forth of twenty commissions that I am committed to getting finished in the next week!

The 20 commissioned paintings that I have to paint, follow on the heels of a very successful promotion, called the “20×20” that I did last month, where I committed to painting 20 paintings in 20 days.

During the “20 paintings in 20 days” all but one of those twenty paintings sold the day I painted them.  I was surprised to find that so many people out there were fascinated by the process of starting and finishing a painting every day, for 20 consecutive days.

It was a difficult commitment, to do that many paintings that fast.  But I learned a lot about myself in the process.

This painting is called THE POWER WITHIN – it’s sized 11″ x 14″ Paint Pens on Canvas Board.

It’s for a collector named Cathy P. who lives in Ohio.  Cathy wanted a painting that was “zen-like” and that incorporated Buddha and waves.Drew Brophy Meditation Art Painting the Buddha commission POWER WITHIN

I added the all-seeing eyes and rainbow energy bolts.   This depicts that power that we all have within ourselves to find peace and joy and to tap into the vibrations that we were meant to get in tune with.

I hope Cathy loves her painting.

Life is Good, Drew

RIDING THE WAVE OF LIFE by Drew Brophy 16 x 20 Canvas Board 20x20 Series Oct 2013FOR the past 20 DAYS, I CREATED 20 ORIGINAL ART PIECES that reflect my thought process and where my ideas originate from. 

I painted from the heart, just having fun with it.  

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.

This Painting is THE LAST of 20 in this #20×20 Series, titled RIDING THE WAVE OF LIFE, 16″ x 20″ on Canvas Board, medium Uni Poscas Paint Pens.

This is the final painting of my series and I wanted it to be the best one yet.

When I look at this process from the last 20 days, I see it as an exercise in loosening up, and learning how to better execute different techniques.

This painting is a reflection of all that.  And, in the end, I realize that I just love to paint surf images…

I hope you like it, Life is Good,

Drew

This painting is SOLD to Bill P. from New Jersey.  Thanks Bill!
