While sharing the photos of the paintings in Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, Jamie Cooper wrote: “This has been one of the most rewarding paintings I have produced in 25 years of commissioned work. A magical scene at the Temple of gold featuring significant figures in Sikh history from throughout the last century.”
“A private commission, this was a deeply personal work of art for a beautiful, loving family who is a shining example of their faith. I feel humbled to have been entrusted with this task. Each person featured has a personal meaning to this family, just like the room they are located,” he added.
He further wrote: “In painting this, I realized that the place was as important as the people in it. So I spent as much time, if not more, on the beautifully intricate architecture for it contained the energy of every person who entered it with reverence and love.”
“My partner and I @jennifermobiliacoaching traveled from Australia to the UK to unveil it last night at the family home to dozens of unsuspecting family and close friends. 700 hours of work and every minute worth it,” he concluded.
