Spiritual


This was done from a photo that my husband took on our recent trip to Rishikesh, a spiritual Indian town, also my birth place and hometown. My husband took a lot of pictures here , in the early morning sun.It was a time for prayers and meditation. This lady was also busy reading her holy book. She is wearing sffron robs, a color of spirituality, sacrifice and salvation.
The scene around here in the early morning looks very serene with lots of sadhus meditating and praying .
I always love quietly sitting on the ghats or roaming at the riverbank ; its immensely peaceful here. Ganga , or the Ganges, as it is globally called; is purest at this juncture, just flowing down from hills of Himalaya.

Youth


This is Meghna, younger sister of my husband.Very vivacious, very charming, always ready to help! She is very fond of posing and loves being clicked....So last time she visited, I took this picture and promised her that I would paint her portrait very soon....I am going to give it to her on Diwali! I think it would make her happy!
I am a little worried about likeness factor..what's your take?
