This is my 12th and final drawing for the Jogyesa Buddhist Temple 2014 calendar. At certain times of the year, they string up thousands of colored lanterns around the Temple. Right next to the Temple is a very large old tree. People walk around it with their hand outstretched touching the tree as they circle it. There is a slight wearing down of the bark in that area around the tree. It's a very tall tree. From a high vantage point, you can see the rows of lanterns and then magically, a giant tree growing out of the top of them. At night, the lanterns are lit up. It's quite something.
I'd like to thank everyone who came to my Etsy shop and bought prints and originals from me. They're going like hot cakes.
