24×24 oils on canvas.
Commissioned artwork of three daughters who are Odissi dancers, posing as Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. The famous Konark temple wheel forms a bright background for the silhouetted dancers. A wedding anniversary present from the daughters to their parents, the painting was requested by one of the dancers, from New York. She wanted only to depict their dance poses and not their individual facial features.
Bringing Indian culture and the meaningful thanks to parents for imbibing it in them was a very exciting process as the client gave me a free hand with expressing her theme.
