Paintings

The paintings presented here are the work of Bill Burns. He was encouraged by H.H. Seonaidh Perks to paint the Celtic Buddha. This process is described in the article Painting the Path. The paintings and flag designs were done during the period 2000-2009 and were integrated with meditation practices.
