Kiran’s Portrait

Kiran the bride 011I have been trying to paint a nose ring on an Indian bride all afternoon and it has proved to be one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to complete. I started this painting about eighteen months ago and was too afraid to attempt the nose ring at the time, so I put it away and forgot about it.

However, when I learned that I would be participating in an art exhibition next week, I thought it would be the perfect incentive to finish the painting. The photograph was taken at a Hindu wedding I attended in Delhi in 2006 and, although I’m pleased enough with the result, it doesn’t look anything like the bride, Kiran – but at least I finished it! 🙂

    The painting is beautiful. Why were you afraid to finish it?
