Piece description from the artist
My visit to the Himalayas in the Ladakh region is the inspiration behind this work. When the sun is shining, it feels like the ranges are dipped in molten gold, ready to light up anyone's mood and to touch one's soul.
Padmaja is from Bangalore, India and lives in the US. Art has been a part of her life for years now. The roots of her artistic journey lie in depicting scenes from Hindu mythology in her own original way guided by the wall sculptures in century old temples of South India. Along the road of her creative journey she has chosen to express herself through contemporary impressionistic, expressionist as well as abstract approaches to painting.
Padmaja describes her process stating, "Art has put me on to the path of joy and self discovery. The process of transferring my thoughts on to a canvas through colors and shapes is gratifying."
