    A Portrait of Nishijima Roshi by Nengei (our Sangha Artist in Residence)

    JUNDO: I AM TAKING THE LIBERTY OF MOVING NENGEI's POST HERE, FROM OUR ART SECTION, SO THAT EVERYONE CAN APPRECIATE THE WORK. HAVING KNOWN NISHIJIMA ROSHI, I FEEL AS IF HE IS ABOUT TO STEP OFF THE CANVAS.

    I am pleased to post this finished (I think) portrait of someone dearly loved by all of us here at Treeleaf Zendo. I will post another photo after I frame it.

    At Tokei-in
    51x61cm (20x24inches), oils on strteched Belgian linen.

    Oh, yeah. If I didn't have inner peace, I'd go completely psycho on all you guys all the time.

    I do not think that we can charge for this picture, even if just to cover costs (or maybe just for actual printing costs and postage, but nothing more.)

    I have a lot to learn; take anything I say that sounds like teaching with a grain of salt.

    I did make some final updates to this portrait that brought it to a more finished look. Here is the portrait and a photo of it in its frame.

    I like how he appears 'stern', but at the same time emanating compassion; grandfatherly - wise - and loving.

    That's about right, in my experience of the man.
