[PureInsight.org] This painting was inspired by a photograph of a young Falun Gong practitioner. One day, a couple who practice Falun Gong looked around their home for their six-month-old baby boy and found him peacefully practicing Falun Gong's sitting meditation. I was very touched and inspired by both the story and the photograph. I have always wanted to create a painting in the theme of returning to truthfulness. I don't think If I paint a grownup person in the painting, it would fully deliver the feeling of pureness. Children are very pure and innocent, and a naked baby enhances the feeling of natural pureness.
Here is the story and the photograph that gave me the artistic inspiration for this painting
One day in August 1997, my husband and I found our six-month-old baby old wasn't making any sound. We went in to check him and found him peacefully practicing Falun Gong's sitting meditation.
