The one who is Kali is Also Krishna-1

posted in: Oil Paintings | 2

Few months before my father passed away, he asked me to paint something based on the words of Sri Ramakrishna, the one who is Kali is also Krishna (Gauranga)…
It has taken me some time to get this on canvas… but here is the first of the three paintings in the series …
“The one who is Kali is Also Krishna”
And although he is not here to see it in person, I hope you like it Baba. I am blessed to have Sri Ramakrishna as my guru… this painting is to honor my Father and my Guru.

I refer to my paintings as creations from stillness. I have found the best thing I can do as an artist is to get out of the way and let life paint what it wants to paint. I get inspiration about what each painting will be, and then, bit by bit, the general sense of it fills in, but that all comes from stillness, too.

    This is Glorious!!! I love the Crisp Clarity (you), the Soft Shadowiness (Sri Ramakrishna), the Ghostliness (your father), the Captivating Auras, the Sparky Fire, and the Pregnant Water, everything so appropriate and so perfectly positioned! Even the elements that would in a lesser painting draw the eye off the page, they don’t – they pull it up into the Third Eye instead! Bravo!
