Madonna And Child
Acrylic on panel
I just completed this painting inspired by a shrine I saw in Chennai, India. It's the first large painting I've done in a long time, and somehow, for the most part, painted itself. I love it when that happens! I think it's interesting that Madonna is wearing a sari and Indian jewelry, while holding a rosary. There are so many beautiful temples and shrines in India, but this one I found striking, because of the contrast and bright colors, plus I've always been drawn to catholic imagery. I was raised Jewish, but my father was Catholic, and my husband is Hindu.
