Anticipation


Anticipation
16x20 Inches - Mixed Medium on Canvas

I started of this painting to paint a Bride Anticipating her life ahead. But when I was done I realised that I had subconsciously made a potrait of my mom. With everything that reminds me of her standing out. The Vermilon in the hair partition, a Big Red Bindi, Big Eyes, Nose ring and the distinctive chin. Anticipation to me reminds me of my mother because she always had an uncanny way of foretelling what can happen.

Son of Nataraj

Son of Nataraj
16x20 Inches - Oil on Canvas

Ganesha is worshipped as the remover of obstacles, as the God of wisdom and success. His plump belly symbolizes prosperity, and his large forehead represents intelligence and foresight. His usual form is of Calm and Composure. But this image is of Ganesha, Son of Nataraj. Though this is not a common pose of Ganesha, according to Rigveda, Ganesha is also been depicted as the God of Performing Art.
In this Painting he is balanced lightly on one leg with the other raised and bent at the knee. He is in his elements and enjoying it. My way of depicting that for perfect symmetry calm composure needs to be balanced with impulsiveness.
