All true artists,

Hi Rajesh:)

Lovely colorful painting. This is a very stylish romance. Sitting on a camel and romancing is the height of romance. Very handsome man and beautiful girl.

Have a nice day Rajesh:)

It does seem so romantic, though somehow I am guessing living in days of old in the desert was not so easy. She's got quite an outfit.

What an alluring sight, to pack a bag and leave right into that image, discovering probably a whole new life.

Oh, very romantic. I have just finished reading a book that featured sand dunes and described the shifting of the sands and their patterns in a very timeless fashion. Great choice for S.

Thanks to all for the appreciation. These are paintings from small time artists. Eight years back these paintings of 15" x 30" were around 50 bucks.

Oh, I love it, Rajesh. You know I already have such a romantic idea of India, anyway, and I'm one of your country's biggest fans. The painting is beautiful. Looks like an ad for some Bollywood film!

Rajesh said...

Thanks for appreciating the painting from little known artists.
