"Resting Buddha..."

...inspired by Serena's statue in Australia
(see the actual photo here)
and reinterpreted here as the Illustration Friday challenge:
"Legendary."

“Look famous.
Be legendary.
Appear Complex. Act easy.
Radiate presence.
Travel light.
Seem a dream. Prove real.”

"Happy 50th Birthday Serena...You Go Girl!!..."

This Budda seems quite happy with its beautiful flower offering. She would be delighted with your depiction of her too.

Stunning! Here's a bit of trivia for you. I was going to paint this same Buddha for "subtract." I was going to say "Subtract negative thoughts and live a peaceful life."

Great minds :)
