Love in Lal Bagh1 - Acrylic painting on canvas

This is the first painting of the 'Love in Lal Bagh' series that I created for display at the recently concluded mega group art show called 'Akanksha 2'.

My early morning walks at the Lal Bagh Gardens - Bangalore, inspired me into painting this series.

A Cozy couple who have eyes only for each other, in deep conversation, probably with proposals of life long commitments taking place here. Nature has offered her support of the couple in the form of beautifully flowering- gigantic trees of Lal Bagh, thus creating an aura of romance in the air.

Invitation to my upcoming group art show - Akanksha

An undertaking of 'Akanksha Group Shows and Festivals', 'Akanksha' is the second season of painting exhibition, curated and organized by fellow artist and good friend Mrs Shyamala Ramanand.

The participants are 67 fine artist ladies (including me :)), and together we propose to create a festival of paintings in the coming week at Chithra kala Parishath - Bengaluru.

Personally, I will be exhibiting a body of work called 'Love in Lal Bagh'.  As the name suggests, it is a romantic collection portraying the lucky couples who jaunt the Lal Bagh gardens of Bangalore city to share their heart to their loved one.

Executed in the 'impasto' style, I have painted them using lovable and pretty colors which is the aura of romantic Lal Bagh.
