Some Words from Our Customers

“I would like to thank my friend Anu Bhat from the bottom of my heart for bringing this peaceful creation of an artist to my house. This is not just a painting for me it is a divine art that creates and convey peaceful feeling every time I look at it. The colors and other important effects maintained balance and harmony through out the painting . In todays world it is a wonderful thing if a painting could truly and actually "HEAL" someone the moment they looked at the painting . When I see the monk with joining hands this is the thought that comes in my mind: "Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions." THIS PAINTING MAKES ME FEEL AT PEACE!!”

      "When I see this painting, I simultaneously think of the monks in Vietnam who have since passed on, due to recent wars and the artist who currently lives in the same country. Through his touching works of art, he brings beauty to history."
