A Still Life and Some Good News

Indian Bells and Japanese Fan, Oil on Canvas, (18" X 14") 
 Although my wife had bought these lovely bells with the embossing of Lord Ganesh about a couple of years ago,  I finally gathered enough courage to paint something so complicated only last week. It took me about 12 hrs to complete this. All comments and critiques are most welcome. :)

Something else I wanted to share with you all is that y drawing "Worker Woman" won the "M/s. Hindustan Pencils Ltd. Award for Charcoal on Paper" at the recently concluded 122nd Annual All India Art Exhibition of the Bombay Art Society. 

Thank you so much all my dear friends for your support and encouragement! :)
