LMAC-Round 99: Buddhist Home By The Seaside

avatar
(Edited)

My collage features a house on the seaside where Buddhist Monks reside. Surrounded by the peace and tranquility of nature they spend time in quiet meditation and reflecting on the philosophical teachings of Buddha.

It is sunset as two monks walk along the shore to view the beauty of the sun’s reflection on the water.

The giant butterflies float happily around the area while a Great Blue Heron is coming in for a landing.

You have some of the most interesting collages I have seen, Jo! @redheadpei! Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh, my! Kidding, but, the collages are beautiful and I want to know what gives you the inspiration?

Tigers, Lions and Bears eh? Denise, I looked but the only thing I would find here was a coyote and the raccoon that visits nightly. :))

There are many Buddhist residing on the Island and they have built a temple here. When I saw the uniquely shaped house I thought of them using it to house some of their followers. My second thought was a mysterious leprechaun living there but I went with my first thought.

Have a wonderful day, my friend.🌸

This is wonderful, inspired. Very beautiful and makes me feel peaceful. I once wrote a small book on Chinese art and thought of this picture (from that book) when I looked at yours:

Three Men Laughing by the Tiger Stream, by Li Tang
li tang three laughing men by the tiger stream public song dynasty.png

This is from the Song Dynasty in China. The picture represents harmony, the harmony of three great religious traditions: Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. That's how your picture makes me feel :)

Thanks A.G. @agmoore. Chinese art is so delicate and beautiful and I am pleased you feel a similarity ( even a small one) with the picture from the Song Dynasty in China.

I hope your Sunday is going well and best wishes for a wonderful week ahead, my friend.🌸

Greetings dear Hannes. I’m happy you liked my interpretation. A magical looking house to work the imagination on.

Thanks so much for everything and all the goodies.😊

I mentioned it before but have a wonderful day. The rain and the winds of November are blowing the leaves off the trees here. 🤗

Hi Jo,

this cute house has certainly helped, but your imagination would have made something magical or fairy tale like anyway, I believe 😀

Many trees are looking quite nice at the moment with only a few leaves left ... would make nice photos maybe, I'll see 😉

All my pleasure, dear Jo, I'm wishing you also once more a wonderful Tuesday 🤗🌞


!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

I like the concept of the buddhist home you came up with @redheadpei. It looks so tranquil, and as a daily meditator I kinda want to visit and sit in silence with the monks 🙂

Great work!
