Painting the serene face of a Buddha

Collection of images with the calm face of a Buddha in the process of enlightenment

I have always been fascinated by the sweet faces of the Buddhas, with their closed eyes and that immense peace that they express.

Buddha is a very fashionable pictorial subject throughout the world due to its relation to the increase of the meditation philosophies and personal development and inner peace. These are paintings with the human face close-up, a calm expression and a state of meditation. The man in serenity and inner peace.

When I discovered the great success of this type of painting, I thought it was a fashion. And all fashions are fleeting and capricious. But the pictures of Buddha or related to this process of meditation are paintings that continue to be very successful.

Painting titled “Buddha trying to enlighten himself under the Bodhi tree” by Cristina Alejos. Acrylic on 40 cm x 50 cm wooden board. It could be called “Buddha trying to reach Nirvana,” but enlightening seems more fun to me.
