Something Fishy

UV-Reactive Acrylic on board,
14 inches wide by 10 inches tall

The term "fishy" is thought to have originated from the notion "as slippery as a fish" and the character of this painting certainly seems to be plotting some shady deal. An appropriate piece to hang over the poker table (or in a government office).

Ganesh

UV-Reactive Acrylic on canvas,
20 inches square

Ganesh is the very popular Hindu deity. I have depicted him with his traditional accoutrements. He holds an axe to cut off all bonds of attachment. The lotus flower symbolizes the realised inner self which is the highest goal of human evolution. A bowl of a modaka (sweet balls made of rice or wheat flour) symbolizes the immortality-bestowing, bliss-giving nectar of the crown chakra. And, on his outward palm is the Sanskrit symbol OM (the sacred syllable of the sound from which the world was created).
