Guanyin Paintings, Kuan Yin Art by Lita Kelley

Of the numerous Bodhisattva in Buddhism, Guanyin, aka Kuan Yin, Kwan Yin, Quan Am, Kannon, etc, is the one that resonates with me the most.  Although she goes by many names depending on region, she is the Bodhisattva of Compassion, and she is one of my two yidam, the other being Tara.

Of my numerous Buddhist art artworks, few of them are of Guanyin and I intend on creating more.

Om Mani Padme Hum

  Of all the Buddhist mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum is my favorite, because it's associated with my yidam, Guan Yin. ( Kuan Yin / Avalokiteshvara ). I even have it tattooed on my arm, and I walked down the aisle at my wedding to Imee Ooi's beautiful musical rendition of Om Mani Padme Hum.  A very powerful mantra for compassion.

Oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ / ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པདྨེ་ཧཱུྃ
Oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ / ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པདྨེ་ཧཱུྃ
This colorful Om Mani Padme Hum art artwork by Lita Kelley is painted in Tibetan Utchen, Bhutanese Dzongkha script within a colorful geometric abstract background, ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པདྨེ་ཧཱུྃ.

Om Mani Padme Hum is found inscribe in rocks, walls and stones throughout Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet.    This artwork is available on museum quality canvas prints, posters and more.

Kuan Yin in Modern Buddhist Art

  Not only do I create artworks and paintings of Buddha, my Buddhist art also includes my main yidam, Guan Yin, aks Kuan Yin, & Avalokiteshvara, etc among other names depending on country and school or tradition of Buddhism.  I myself am of Tibetan Mahayana, Vajrayana Buddhism traditions.  Kuan Yin is the Bodhisattva of compassion and is the one Bodhisattva within the entire Buddhist pantheon that I most identify with.  She is called Avalokiteshvara & Chenrezig, and is the Bodhisattva from which Tara was born, my second yidam.

Here's some of my Kuan Yin art, available as wall art on canvas prints, posters, framed art prints and more.

Horse Paintings

One night while on the phone with my daughter, I told her about my art website that I was working on and she said "you should paint pictures of horses", because she loves horses and works on a farm, and she even owns her own horse, a wild Mustang named Lakota, procured through the US bureau of land management, so, I painted one of her horse Lakota, and a trio of wild horses, both of which are available for purchase as fine art prints wall art on Canvas, specialty print papers and other fine materials.  Check out my horse paintings below.

Namaste Wall Art

Namaste, sometimes spoken as Namaskar, Namaskaram is a respectful form of greeting in Hindu custom, found on the Indian subcontinent mainly in India and Nepal and among the Indian diaspora. It is used both for salutation and valediction.

Namaste is usually spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest. This gesture is called Añjali Mudrā or Pranamasana.
Namaste can be spoken without the bow, however, the bow is more formal and is considered to be respectful, especially when directed towards an elder or a person of importance.

Add some zen and bright pastel color to your living room walls, office walls, or even your yoga studio with my Namaste wall art, available in 3 different colors.  Buddha sits in meditation against zen stones with a lotus flower to the side in this beautiful painting and it's available for purchase as a museum quality canvas print, or choose from any of the fine papers & other materials available, with or without frame, shipped worldwide and with 30 day money back guarantee.
