Smiling Buddha Gallerywww.ArtPal.com/smilingbuddha
My name is Lee and I love to paint, draw, collage, and make jewelry. I am a gypsy of sorts, having lived in various places making music, art and teaching to pay the bills. My daughter Mukti, who came into the world like a smiling buddha, cheeks and all, was the impetus for me settling down in Oregon. I occasionally teach classes on various art mediums, but recently became inspired and a bit obsessed with expressing myself through the paintings you see here. Through all that is going on in the world, it has become a vital way to keep my spirit going.
