Description of Benevolent

Benevolent is based on a statue of a monk in a bamboo grove at Selby Gardens in Sarasota,Florida.  I was struck by the way the light hit the statue and the bamboo. It seemed so peaceful and almost cool, even though it was a hot day. I added the pigeons because they added to the peacefulness of the painting and I always like a bird in a painting.
