Oil Painting - Portraits & Figures

When painting Meher Baba it becomes a meditation and He comes very close. As a portrait painter this is my way of expressing my feelings, so I paint Baba with much joy.
In the spring of the year 2000, when I first awoke to Meher Baba and knew Him as my Master, I began to sketch Him, and this was a great comfort as I was going through a very difficult time then.
When I was more settled, I got my oil paints out and painted ‘Lord Meher’ in only a few sessions. This is still my favorite portrait of Him, and it was done in a different style, the paint is thinner and I only used three colours plus white and gold. It came so quickly and directly that I realized my Master was really holding the paintbrush, not me!
When I feel the urge to paint I may study Baba’s photos until the possibility of a painting brings on an inner excitement. Or it may be a phrase from His teachings will awaken something within me, and I see a picture form in my mind.
