Medicine Buddha is invoked for healing physical, mental and emotional ailments. This Buddha is set in Eldorado Canyon and attended by a local stag.

Moku Hanga is a labor-intensive traditional Japanese woodblock technique. The woodblocks are hand carved, and hand rubbed using a barren onto fine mulberry paper.
Traditionally separate blocks are carved for each color. I have been experimenting with individually watercolor painting each hand rubbed print. As a result, colors vary with each woodblock print.
