Buddhist Garden Mural

Been working on this mural for a couple weeks; its almost done. My client is wonderful, she wanted something calm and restorative for this renovated attic room, all she said was "do something soft, with greens and blues, and maybe some bamboo." The goal was to expand this little space and create a distance.
I came up with the idea of an asian water garden, and she provided me with the perfect focal point reference, a photo of a statue of Kuan Yin, (also spelt Guan Yin) which she had taken about 10 years ago, on a visit to China, and some of the mountains.

Lovely mural. It most definitely captures 'calm & tranquility'. Wonderful work.
