This painting features a protective layer that shields it from dust, dirt, and pollutants, ensuring long-lasting durability. The glossy finish enhances the depth and richness of the colors, intensifying their vibrancy and making the artwork truly come alive.

The inspiration for this painting comes from a picture I took in Vrindavan India. Vrindavan is a holy town in Uttar Pradesh, northern India. It is said The Hindu deity Krishna spent his childhood in this town.
I was lucky enough to be hosted by a family who maintains the garden where Krishna use to play and dance. The family belongs to the Brajabasi tribe which are natives of Vraj. The women of the family are known as flower girls. They grow flowers in the lands surrounding the garden which radiates tranquility.
The flower girls grow fragrant red and pink roses which are key ingredients in many expensive oils, velvet, and 4 types of jasmine.  The flowers are used to create garlands which are brought fresh in baskets on their heads to the temples where they are sold.
One of the flower girls treated me with the most wonderful tasty Chapati bread. The painting represents the actual oven where the bread was made.  Her little son used small apples in his slingshot. The boy used the oven as a shooting target.
This picture carries calm, peace and all the beauty of this sacred place. Sunny joy from capturing the moment.
