Beauty and the Prick

Acrylic on Canvas18” X 14”Some aspects in our lives can bring us great beauty and joy. At the same time, the same facet can inflict pain.Isn’t the quintessential rose such an example?In its sober, aromatic beauty lurk flecks of cruel deceit, capable…

Instead if commenting on every last one of your paintings because they're all amazing, I'll just say how much I love your gallery in general! You're incredibly talented!

Hi Justine.. unfortunately I don't have any of my work to show you as of now. My Art story is that I was always good at playing with colors but somehow my life got entangled into the money making cruel busy lifestyle.. got married in 1999 then had kids.. responsibilities... and i totally forgot the art for last 15 years. Recently I got my interest back, I tried to revive my interest and bought some materials and tried my hand, but still I find it difficult to concentrate and work for more than 2 hours in a single sitting.. so i am trying to get back to my skills, hopefully after few weeks i will surely share with you my work (If at all show-able). My email is kbgadhvi@yahoo.com
