Goddess Of Compassion

Another 8"x6" oil on canvas work in progress. I thought it would be done last night, but this one has a mind of its own, apparently! I'm off to work on it now. The lovely soapstone sculpture posing for this painting is of the Buddhist goddess of compassion or mercy, variously spelled Quan Yin, Kuan Yin, or Kwan Yin, also AKA Tara.

Aah! I saw the later version before I scrolled down here; for me, both are powerful, suggestive pieces.

Then perhaps they are expressing my spiritual intention, thanks!
