Stone Lantern in Spring

Jennifer Miller's avatar Jennifer Miller

This painting is oil on canvas, size is 48"x36". The subject is a stone lantern with a temple and cherry blossoms in the background. The blossoms are ephemeral and distracting in their beauty, while the stone lantern is solid, ancient stone and it symbolizes wisdom and enlightenment. There are stone lanterns like this throughout Korea and many of them are over a thousand years old. The painting is sort of a meditation on how the lantern stays in its place for centuries while the blossoms come and go with the seasons, but both have their place before the temple.
