Mid-day Article : Ganesha Painting

September 23rd, 2007

One of my paintings was featured in the Mumbai Mid-day today. I still haven’t read the print newspaper but the online version can be found here.

The original blog post can be found on the nainaredhu.com blog here.

The final painting:

I found the copy-writing of the article a little “filmy” but that’s how newspapers are I suppose. This is the first time I’ve been featured in a newspaper in India – so its cool! Yay!

  1. Hi Naina,

    I happened to read this MidDay article and it took me here! Though I’ve visited your blog & portfolio site quite a few times, this is the first time i am scrapping some comments.

    Hey, I love this cute fatso ganesha! the use of earthy colors really rocked the painting!

    And, could you please explain me why did you use white space for the eyes?

    Well done!

  2. Hi Anoop! Thank you for getting in touch and for the encouraging words! Honestly, the painting is a lot more random than it seems! The reason for leaving it abstract was to allow people to decipher whatever it was that inspired them and whatever they themselves saw in Ganesha! Very kind of you to stop by! Please be in touch!
