Painting of a woman in a saree selling pooja plates

In India, most temples sell pooja plates in front of the main entrance to facilitate pilgrims to do pooja inside the temple. Many men and women line the entrance selling pooja plates early morning, as pilgrims start coming even by 6 am.

This is an acrylic painting of a woman selling pooja plates, of size 16"x18"

Close up of the Indian tender coconut vendor

My fascination for the Indian tender coconut vendor continues. I chose to paint a close up this time, hoping to capture the interesting contours on the face caused by the 12 o clock sun.
I also hope to have captured the body language showing his style and the self confidence in his work.
This is an acrylic painting of size 12"x16". Please click HERE to see how this painting will look if it is framed.

Home Makers

I have been busy lately painting and getting prepared for my upcoming show in February. Hence the long intervals between posts. Just once a month nowadays.
Here is a glimpse of what you can expect at my upcoming show. It is all about Indian people and their body language that I see everyday around me. This show will also give everybody a glimpse today's India.
'Home Makers' is a painting of three Indian women literally building homes. You can see in this painting, two women in sarees and a young girl wearing a lehenga and blouse carrying bricks. It happens only in India, as they say. This is an acrylic painting of size 18.5"x15".
