Walking, working...

Walking, working, barely breathing
My thoughts, far away
Heart aching, mind racing
Sleep does not come easily, nor last long....

Love this painting, especially how the light is shining off the sari on the right side of the image--And I also like the joyful expression in the eyes. Well Done!

Hi, Aarti,
Love the poem and the painting is lovely, too! It is as if she is speaking
the words!

The white part of the material is beautifully illustrated with illuminating affects, although it takes away from the face.

Aarti Harish said...

I love all of your work and have looked at many of your pieces...this one caused me to pause because of the beauty of the metallic paint...

I also love your interesting quotes attached to each drawing :-)

Aarti Harish said...

Thanks Cindi for coming across and stopping by and commenting...yes I also loved the metallic sheen which the paint offers....so I am using them in paintings which has shimmery fabric or Indian costumes.
