My Vision of Peace
I am a watercolor artist and I travel around the world to paint. I've just returned from India a few months ago. It was an amazing adventure but the highlight was going to Varanasi, the holiest city in the country. People come from all around India and other parts of the world to bathe in the Ganges River and find peace within. They go there to be joined in marriage and they bring their loved ones who have passed on to be cremated there. I painted this piece while in India and it brings me peace.


Medium
I drew this while I was on a boat on the Ganges River, watching some women in their colorful saris as they entered the water to be blessed. I used a permanent pen to complete the drawing and afterwards, I painted it with my watercolors. The colors in India are so bright and uplifting and the women all look so beautiful in their native dress.

I am so drawn to the reflections of the saris in the water. Beautiful work.
