Chaos and Harmony: More storms

Exactly a week after the last post, there was a pretty violent storm that hit Delhi, with winds at over 92 km per hour. Well, my fascination with storms meant that my second painting of the "Leaf Storm" series was complete. The colours give a different strength to the chaos, and harmony of scattered leaves, twigs, flowers, nuts and buds. While many old and wrinkled branches fall off trees in such a storm, a few young ones are plucked off before their time:

For people on the road, the storm meant a terrible amount of dust, trees swaying, traffic getting disrupted and things flying from balconies and roofs and hoarding, and hurtling around like dangerous missiles, and then there was darkness at noon!


My exhibition is on at Triveni Gallery, Triveni Kala Sangam, Tansen Marg, New Delhi till the 6th June.
