Parvati, 2024. 21” x 17” with frame.

Textured acrylics, silk fabric, costume jewelry.

In my latest textured acrylic painting in the Shakti series, the bride’s feet take center stage, adorned with intricate henna designs, thick musical anklets, and sparkling toe rings with a flowing silk skirt draped around the ankles. My attempt to evoke the grace and beauty of Goddess Parvati, an embodiment of feminine power and strength, carrying the bride with unshakable resilience into her new life.
