For you Maa......

Sketches for the two commissions that I am working on now......Maa-meye (mother-daughter)
''Maa-meye'' (which in Bengali means Mother -daughter)
Mixed media on paper, 30cm x 50cm

Here is a close-up of little birdie:

The second sketch is also a mother-child portrait:
Maa Annapura
Goddess Annapurna feeding rice to baby Shiva,
Mixed media on paper, 28cm x 42cm.
These two sketches are *not for sale*,
they will stay with moi in my home-studio :)

It is my mom's birthday today:)
I wish I could fly back to her to plant this kiss in person,
she will have to make do with this for now

Here is one of my favourite photos of her, just for my readers :)!!
This was taken by Baba (dad) on their honey-moon, on a Shikara in Kashmir.

Love you Maa
Happy birthday!

Maa Lokkhi with Owl

Title: Maa Lokkhi , commissioned piece
(Bengali school rendition of the Goddess of Wealth Maa Lakshmi)
Size: 35 cm x 45 cm
Medium: Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas
Varnished, signed and dated

The jewellery and crown is rendered along the lines of traditional temple jewellery.

The owl comes back as the vahana as I did this for a Bengali collector.

This was the photo of an antique basara pearl nose ring
that I used as reference for painting the Goddess's ornament.
I found this beautiful piece here.
