Acrylic on Board

10.5 × 8.5 in

Inpired by the upcoming Ganesh Chaturthi
Ganesh Chaturthi -it is an annual festival honouring Ganesha’s Birthday for ten days, which typically falls in late August or early September (August 23rd – September 11th)

Lord Ganesha is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India and Nepal. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.

As image Inspiration I used this beautiful piece of jewelry symbolizing Lord Ganesha.

    In spirit you have painted ganesha beautifully and your narration on Ganesh Chaturthi is perfect .

  • Oh, thank you so very much. Among all my paintings, I am most fond of my Little Ganesha.Everything started when I was checking for a Religious Hindu Holiday. This is how I learned about Lord Ganesha. Than I decided to paint him. Every brush stroke brought me closer and closer to him…. Now that I have the painting accomplished, I am filled with so much happiness and joy.
