Painting the Buddha

Here's what I've been working on this weekend. You may have seen something like this on this blog before. The first ones were digital paintings -- a combination of digital composite photography and photomanipulation with digital paint on top. This was printed in multiple sheets on my inkjet printer, collaged to canvas and painted on top. The original photograph was one I took of a very weathered garden Buddha. I took out the background and added a pattern I painted based on a piece of batik printed fabric. I just added a final light shimmer of copper paint. I loved that but it made it really hard to photograph.
