Contemporary Indian painting is emerging as one of the vital aspects of our culture today. The artist keeping pace with the changing medium has eschewed traditional pigments in favour of oil colours on canvas. The skill, the endeavour, however remains unchanged

The artist has caught the expression demeanor and grace of the subject with precision. The life-size portrayal of the female form reveals the magic oil colours can simulate. Various shades of ochre give the skin a natural tone and judicious shading accentuates the contours of the body. The features are well defined and the artist seems to stick to realism and makes no effort to perfect the broad chin. To counter the warm skin tones he uses the cool blue and green for the attire. One end of the blue shawl covering her head falls in the front while the other falls back revealing well-contoured shoulders. A short blouse barely conceals the well-endowed body. She wears ornaments of tribal design. A rip in her blouse is an unnecessary addition, coming in the way of overall elegance.

The back ground is calm yet non-descript & helps in no way to either increase or decrease the poise of the female form.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
