Siddhartha Gautama went on a quest for enlightenment around the sixth century BC. Here is one of my best efforts when it comes to painting Siddhartha or as we know him, Gautam Buddha.

Made in a 36 x 20 (inches) Canvas, in the oil medium, here is a peaceful Buddha painting.

Here is a painting of Buddha resting around flowers, with the backdrop of bamboo. The contrast of blue Buddha and the brown bamboos are eye-catching, in my humble opinion. The painting was made in a 36 x 24 canvas, in the oil medium.
