Kutchi Girl

A very humble attempt to recreate an original "Kutchi Girl" by the great artist Jaya Rastogi Wheaton of Jaipur.  This beautifully painted kutch girl appeared on a Reader's Digest magazine years ago, maybe around 15 years or so and since then I had it with me to paint it some day when I learn to paint using proper technique.  After so many years of waiting I dared to attempt 3 years ago.  Still, I could not capture the beautiful subtle emotion on the little girls's face.

Oil on canvas 11" x 15" frame.  I have reproduced this painting from a greeting card which I have in my "to-be-painted" folder(not a computer folder). :).

A bunch of narcissus or daffodils.  Acrylic on paper, trying to get a watercolor look, now framed and adorning my parents'  sitting room :).  I think it was made in 2011. 


Acrylic on canvas 12in.x17in decorated with acrylic kundan beads.  This is an original painting by me.
