The Yellow Sari - an oil painting on the India theme

in dropahead •  2 months ago

While traveling in India, I often collected popular religious images; in this painting you can see Radha and Krishna.

I saw the realistically painted woman in a market place and decided to mix her with the religious image, as though she was carrying her beliefs wherever she went.

Indian textiles have always inspired me, particularly the women's sarees. I included some of these textures in the surrounding areas of the main subject. They create great color opportunities.

This work, along with another, won an award at the Visionary Art exhibit in Moscow this spring:

Thank you @c-squared. Your support is much appreciated.

Good work, Kathleen, I wish you continued success.

I, especially, appreciated this line of reasoning:

the realistically painted woman in a market place and decided to mix her with the religious image, as though she was carrying her beliefs wherever she went.

As poet/philosopher/artist Gibran affirms:

Your daily life is your temple and religion. When you enter it, take with you your all. _/|\_
