Original mixed media painting on canvas

In May All Beings, my goal was to fill the canvas with threads and strings and rough edges of cloth. Even the background is textured with strings. The 12 pieces of painted canvas cloth are sewn to the background but only at the tops… and the threads are left hanging at both ends of the stitching.

I included the words from John Astin's song "May All Beings Be Happy" in English and in Sanskrit… “May all beings be happy. May all beings be at peace. May all be free from suffering. May all be free from pain.”

Some of the text is visible in the background and one of the four statements can be found under each of the cloth flaps.

I was so attracted to the shadows created by the way the light fell on the cloth, strings, and strands that I left the background quiet without color.

The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides. It has been signed and dated on the side of the canvas.
