Pastel on paper,   11" x 14"
These are all old traditional household utensils commonly used by Indian people. The pot on the left, called "Ghoti" in Bengali,  holds a special sentiment in my heart because my grand father, used to drink water from it. He drank lots of water, and whenever he called me, I thought he would ask me to get him some water to drink. Mostly, I was right.  That was a long time back, but this ghoti always brings back such fond memories.

Wooden Vase and apples

Pastel on paper,   11" x 14" 
I have had this wooden vase with me for a while, waiting to be painted. I particularly like the shadow that it casts on the wall. You will certainly see more of this vase in my future paintings!

Copper Utencils

Pastel on paper,   11" x 14" 
I haven't been blogging for a while. In the mean time I painted a few still-lifes with different types of metals. This one is one of my favorites, an assortment of copper vessels. I got these utensils on my last trip to India, simply love them! I will upload the other paintings soon. Thanks for visiting my blog!
