The stupa

Oil on canvas 16"x20"

Just finished this painting of a stupa ( Buddhist house of worship) in Tibet. I like the colorful flags flying high against the clear blue sky, complementing  the barren white walls of the structure, weathered by the elements. The play of light is also very interesting.

It’s from a photograph taken by my friend Devajyoti Sarkar. I often paint from his photos, and I am grateful to him for letting me use them.
