India

There are about 50 yes fifty paintings of everyday life in India so I can only show a random few here. The whole is a ready-to-go travelling exhibition; it needs a gallery. Or maybe a book. Some are postcards already. The Govinda Triptych, on another page, also has an Indian theme; and is also a postcard.

Street scene, Hampi — a.k.a Vijayanagar. The two temples — the tin one is a garage for the Juggernaut, the Gods’ tuk-tuk. The inner courtyard glimpsed through the doorway is shown on the right, just above. And another Hampi scene, bottom left below.
The Temple of Everything — truly multi-purpose. This and the two below were painted live, in the street, some years ago before the Toyota Tsunami took India over.

`Above, left: A squatter family among the ruined temples of Vijayanagar (Hampi); and right, Lifeguards at Lunchtime, Goa. Below, two more from Goa: buffalos on the common land, and a cow and calf grazing by a pond with a most desirable Goanese villa in the background. These four are acrylic on wood panel.

Two from Rajasthan (Puskhar). So many stories, not enough space. If you perchance happen to be pals with a gallery owner please give me a plug. It is the most astounding show ever. You ain’t seen nothing yet.
