Today is Krishna’s Birthday!

Today in the USA, it is Krishna’s birthday. I think it only fitting that I celebrate by posting my painting in honor of his birth.
I have long been fascinated by religious iconography of all types and from all ages. As I was doing this painting, I read many interesting articles about Krishna, giving me a deeper connection to my painting, as well as a deeper spiritual connection to the divine within myself. I love the fascinating symbology of the colors and forms, the richness of the history, and connection to my inner self that emerges.
I urge you, not to just enjoy my painting, but research Krishna for yourself and bask in the beauty of knowledge about him and the traditions that followed.
Thanks for looking at my art.
