This painting embodies the eastern philosophy that "to do nothing is to do something." The scribbling of the artist s five-year-old daughter inspired the painting. The figure in the middle, with eyes wide open, is the artist s wife. To her right is the artist s daughter. They stand in an idyllic paradise filled with gently rolling hills, trees, animals, and a lively dancing family. It reflects that inner peace and tranquility can be obtained with minimal effort.
