 This is the second version I painted for this piece. The first one was sold long ago. It is a pretty famous piece in its genre. It got published many times in books, art books, calendars, even for music cassettes. I had kept the original sketch for this one and since the first one was produced rather quickly and under pressure, I made sure to paint this one exactly according to my original sketch. In the third picture below you can see the old original. It is a bit different. Both paintings are painted in the Neo-Vedic style, realism, figurative. The colors are fresh. Mother yashoda found baby Krishna with the broken pots, distributing the yogurt to the monkeys. She is chasing him with a stick and trying to catch him. This will prove difficult since He is the Supreme Bhagavan, but she'll succeed because her love for Him is so great... 
Prints for this painting are also available.

Le rendez-vous de la Rani

Original oil on linen canvas
24" x 36”
 Painted from the live model.
This piece is painted in a realistic style. It is contemporary realism. This style is experiencing a revival in the US, France, England, and perhaps other places in the world.
It is evening and the girl is getting ready for her meeting with her lover. Her jewelry box is half opened, spilling out its content for us to see. She is not wearing any jewelry yet even so her dress is heavily jeweled.  She looks like a princess or a queen; this is why I am calling her a “Rani” in the title. The title in french means: The Rani's rendez-vous. (the queen's meeting). It sounds better in french I believe.

An art event in Karnataka, India, around my devotional art
I got invited to an art even in Mandya, Karnataka by some of my friends last Thursday ( October 21 2011). I received an Award and many officials got up to praise me, ( all in Kanada), so i could not understand what they were exactly saying. But later on i heard that they appreciated the fact that a foreigner had come to their country to remind them of their great cultural heritage by glorifying their culture through art. I got to make a speech too and then got interviewed by the Karnaka newspapers. the article appeared in 4 different newspapers. Next summer we are planning an actual art show in Mandya. 

 Here I am displaying my spiritual art portfolio and commenting on it as I go.
