Saraswati Playing Veena by jasminetoad Saraswati Playing Veena by jasminetoad
Inspired by my recent trip to India, here is a painting based on Hindu devotional imagery of the goddess the Hindu goddess Saraswati! Companion to Brahma and goddess of knowledge, music, arts & science - I've shown her playing her traditional instrument, the Veena (and a majestic peacock - which I saw roaming wild all over in urban areas as well as the countryside!). In India I saw a lot of Hindu devotional artwork - often popping up in the strangest places, on the backsides of trucks, in advertisements and music videos, in temples, posters plastered onto alleyway walls - all so lovely. My original acrylic painting.

Loving how it really plays off of the devotional art but still in your own unique style. Wonderful execution.
