Looking Forward

It has been a really hectic week...lots happening! In a month we will be off to India on vacation and I am very much looking forward to it :) My daughter has already started count down though it's more than a month from now.

This is a painting I did during the last few months of 2011. I do have some works of 2011 yet to be posted. This is a work very dear to me because as soon as I set my sight on this piece of wood, the image of a emerald - eyed girl with brunette locks popped up in my mind. This is painted on wood and I was painting on wood for the very first time. I was excited to see how it would turn out. The texture is different and I am glad with the result.

So here it is...Pls do leave me with your lovely comments...look forward to it.
Close up :)

 Looking Forward - Acrylics on wood, 12x4 inches


Linking it to Paint Party Friday...do drop by to visit Eva and Kristin and to see some amazing art, to Show and Tell Saturday in Artists in Blogland & Weekly Story in Colours Dekor

She's fabulous. Love the way the bright green background sets off the rest of the colors, and her green eyes are especially gorgeous.

Deepa, i really love her flowing hair and of course, her face is perfect. Those bright flowers around her face balance the whole painting. Great work. Have a wonderful and safe trip to India! (I dream of visiting India someday...) xoxo

Great!

The eyes are so mesmerizing! Beautiful!

VST said...

I enjoyed the simplicity of the painting... and the title and the image bending backwards suggests "a looking forward towards the past" imagery... too fragile and delicate. Keep painting.

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Painting on wood? How exciting! I'd like to do that too! And this came out fantastic- I like the size and shape of the wood and how you made her hair flow through the length of the wood. Just during lunch my brother said he was going to India to go around and draw. Patsy from

This is so neat! The hair flowing and being a major feature, along with the eyes and the flowers along her face...it all just works so well...very beautiful!!!!!

Kristin said...

This is stunning!! I am so impressed - and I love how you saw it in your mind before you created it - a true artist.
I hope you have a WONDERFUL time on your trip to India - I will go there one day - and Indian is our Favorite cuisine hands down - enjoy it all!
