Last year on our way to Kerela, I came across these beautiful bamboo forests while crossing Nagerhole National Park, Karnataka. I just loved the scene and thought of doing some work using bamboo trees in the background.
I am happy to share this new work of mine "INNOCENCE" which I have completed today based on this theme. Feel glad to post on "Artist of India" after a long gap. Please share your feedback and suggestions.
The painting depicts a traditional Indian (Rajasthani) village woman busy preparing food for her family.Usually in Indian villages, houses have mud floors and open spaces for kitchen- like you see here.
In the background an earthen 'chulha' ( stove) can be seen.
Medium : Oils
A watercolor portrait of a young Indian boy blowing bubbles...actually its my son, engaged in his favorite time pass!

This is a portrait of our teacher (mine and Sujit's), Mr. Ambadas Mahurkar. He was a renowned watercolourist in Hyderabad and elsewhere. He was so prolific that even at the age of 74, he would paint 5 or 6 watercolours a day. Its been a privilege to study under him.
All comments and critiques are most welcome. Please see my paintings on my blog here.

The title of the painting explains the painting completely. I had made it as a metaphor to almost everything that is 'used and forgotten' including human beings. This was at display in the last exhibition in July this year. A gentleman took a lot of time at this painting and came to me and congratulated me. And then he discussed about it for sometime from which I could gather that he had understood the intended metaphor in the painting. I was indeed very happy because I knew there is at least one person who understood the thought process behind this painting. Well now you also know. :)
