First, I’d like to thank Rita of Nurturing Art for suggesting I paint Jizo.
Thank you Rita for your inspiration and being a supporter of my art.
I love Jizo. He is so adorable with his child-like features. I love his sweet smile and the way he puts his face up to the sky, beaming his joy and gratitude.
I didn’t know who Jizo was when I heard the name and so I Googled it.
I read in Japan, “Jizo is one of the most dearly loved of all Japanese divinities and known as the protector of women, children, and travelers.”
My new Jizo mini paintings are below. They can be found for sale in my Etsy Shop.
In the next ones I simplified his nose and gave the background a bit more depth with more layers of paint.
