What do you get when you are at ease with copying masterpieces?
A homemade and affordable way of having two of Husain’s famous Ganesha paintings. After doing Saraswati a few days ago, I wanted to paint (okay, copy!) Ganeshas. These are my first set of Ganeshas, if I don’t account for the one done on handmade paper and charcoal when I was a teenager. And that was an original!
I made these yesterday while I was daydreaming about India, and drinking my kewra lassi (with a dollop of vanilla ice cream) and doing the daily crossword. Just then a sudden flash of genius!
Waxing on about Husain twice in a week is just weird, right? Especially when there is so much controversy surrounding him…
But my thick head doesn’t get any of that! Never will.
My brain can be very lame sometimes, especially when it wins.
