Few canvases have been witness to such play of colors, amalgamation of media and stupendous results. The artist wanted to be figurative, yet not be part of the representational brigade. He has successfully deviated to create a unique style of his own.

The beauty of the painting lies in its mysterious element. At first sight, the painting seems like a mish-mash of colour and media. It prods you to unravel what lies behind them. Gradually, the outline of a woman emerges. It alerts your keen senses to discover more. In the process, it becomes an exercise, involving not just your visual perception. She cradles a baby in her arms. Suddenly, the canvas is infused with maternal feelings and a bond that only a mother and her child share. She is seated in a way to make the child comfortable; holds him in her arms protectively; close to her bosom to provide him that necessary emotional security.

The background, using oil based colours, is basically blocks of hues merging with each other harmoniously. A flat, monochromatic background would have diminished the enigma that the artist has tried to project. The outline of the lady uses a different, varnished medium that sets it apart from the background.

The painting is emotive, aesthetic and experimental at the same time. It reveals all, but slowly, enticingly, till you fall in love with the artwork.

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.
