This is a mixed media 24" x 36" painting inspired by ERB's (Edgar Rice Burroughs) novels. The Sun is considered perfect and glorious, whereas Moon bears the imperfections i.e. more close to us, the flawed humans. She is the worshiper of moon, a deity that is similar to her walks of life.
Wish, I could post a larger image to show the colors and texture ranges but people use copy/paste too much :)

Thanks to my family and dear friends, now, I can offer this commentary:
As you see, she is not just a woman (who doesn't have the rights to perform torpon according to practiced Hinduism), she is shaved too i.e. suggesting the sacrifice of a monk, her accentuated front hands ... shaped like heart, suggesting homage is what matters not gender. Notice there is a straight line dividing her (not proportionately), the indication of duality of one's nature (didn't like to play with the ordho-narishwar/ half-man-half-woman concept here). She doesn't gaze at the moon, who brings peace to her heart, that which, she lavishes to her dear Earth. She doesn't look at us/viewer as her intent is to completely feel the emotion of gratitude, that is borne from the understanding of her progenies' gifts... She is naked to judgements of her imperfections, with the calmness within. Notice the side hands, they suggest praying pose outside of Hinduism i.e. the act of Torpon is for all humanity.

"The world is not dialectical - it is sworn to extremes, not to equilibrium, sworn to radical antagonism, not to reconciliation or synthesis. This is also the principle of evil."

Me and my paintings, both are sorta twisted...here goes "Reticulated" in mixed media.
We always tend to focus...majorly in the center. The idea here, is not to have the observer focus on a single section of the painting... in my wife's words "Roving Eyes" :)

As a kid, I used to be quite a handful and my quite natured Thammu(Gramma) used to pacify me with self-made stories... JotaDhaari used to take the cake! I would imagine all sorts of fearful men/hermits who would take naughty kids away in distant mountains(I only heard about the Himalayas as a child) to teach a lesson for bothering adults.
... miss you Thammu and your stories!

Mixed Media - This is a homage to the eternal Bengali Poet, Kobiguru Rabindranath Tagore (Bengali: রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর, Robindronath Ţhakur) [7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941].
My personal belief is no-one can truly realize "Bengalis" without reading Tagore, please encourage youngsters to read the poets works.
বিগত ২৫শে বৈশাখ
সকালে উঠে থেকে শুনতাম দাদুর রেডিওতে,
স্কুলের দুপুরে ঘুমের ভান করে মার ক্যাসেটে|
লোঢসেডিং এর আঁধারে ঠাম্মুর গুনগুনানিতে,
চোখ বুজে আসার আগে ছাতে কাকুর সেতারে!
শুধূ তোমাকেই শুনেছিলাম,
তখন বুঝিনী হয়তো!
আজ তোমাকে লেখা পাতায় খুঁজি,
পেলেও বা, সেই সময়ের তোমায় নারি!
তোমায় যারা পুজো করতো
আজ তারা নেই,
যারা আছে, ছায়া মাত্র;
কায়ায় কথা আছে, সুর নেই !

Recently, I discovered my art can do a little bit more than become a decorative piece at someone's collection or means of expression for me. I joined the Smile train (World's Leading Cleft Surgery Charity for Children) and they have graciously accepted my humble collection of paintings for sale/auction - proceeds will go to the children who deserve to smile.
I wish, I could appeal to Mr. Gates for some help but I am a limited man with little means! So I turn to my friends and MNCs with CSR programs - MAYBE YOU CAN HELP?
My paintings are not the reason but the excuse to help the deserving. Those of you who know me, by now know I always participate in small ways to help so please drop me a line and I'll put you in touch with Smile Train directly (that way you know I'm not stealing your gift to the children). We are what we make ourselves to be by our actions...or so I believe!
