An expression of a Kathakalli dancer captured on canvas with oil colours. With water colours, I was moving, rolling, flowing... chucking out paintings like a factory. Oil gives a breather, time comes to a standstill, everything halts in this eternal bliss. I just sit and paint, wait for paint to dry, and paint and wait and paint and it goes on in a cycle till I have a smile on my face. Still waiting for a smile for this one.
