The Gift by jialu The Gift by jialu
The Gift, 2009, oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches

I have a copy of this Gandharan sculpture in my home. It represents the earliest style of Buddhist art from Northern India and is clearly influenced by classical Greek sculpture. Beauty, youth, and talent are all gifts that we have not earned, but are given to us to remind us of heaven. We all have that perfection within us, and it is our purpose to find it and share it.

Your use of light is perfection, and beautiful words as well, I couldn't agree more. :)

I love how the gentle curls of the leaves are an echo of the details on the statue.

Your women are absolutely gorgeous and I love your painting style! It is both symbolic and realistic, which is wonderful! The images are so soothing and peaceful and the colours so harmonious!

I really, really love your work!
