Insight into the inspiration behind the painting "Ascending" by the artist.
Growing up I was influenced by my mother, who practiced Buddhism. Though I never really took to chanting, I was very impressed with the concepts of “ the ten worlds” that I learned at an early age from my Buddhist mother. Though I did not continue in Buddhism, these concepts influence my art, as they are part of who I am. I was also greatly influenced by my father, artist and professional gambler, Joe Mallin. (Oh....there is a whole other story there! and my friend Ken and I are working on book....) I wonder if I ever would have been inclined to pick up a paint brush, had it not been for my father's artistic influence.
