Enlightenment - 2008

Ingredients: acrylic, beach sand, glass, phosphorescent pigments, varnish, water & light on canvas.

It has taken me approximately 10 months to complete this piece and I'm really happy with it. It looks both aged and new, depending on how the light hits it. The central moon is extremely bright and glows for hours in the darkness.

A Zen Teaching:

Enlightenment is like
The reflection of the moon
on water
The moon does not get wet
The water is not separated.

For my full blog post about this painting, check out: http:\/\/shayoa.blogspot.com\/2008\/07\/enlightenment-24x30-inches-2008.html

This painting is 24x30 inches, on stretched canvas with a gallery wrapped (1.5 inch thick) edge and is ready to hang. The sides are painted turquoise with the painting itself dripping over the edges. Made with artist quality paints. Signed and varnished. A light sprinkling of finely ground glass over the top of the painting makes it glimmer and sparkle in the light.

The images to the right are as follows:
1. natural lighting
2. artificial lighting
3. combined uv and artificial lighting
4. uv lighting only
5. no light (glow in the dark for hours!)

*High quality pigments make this painting glow in the dark for hours after the lights are turned off.

Five paintings in one! Includes Certificate of Authenticity.
