Pratiksha is a series of painting where I have used a metaphor to express my introspection of human life, the soul searching. In Pratiksha, a young woman is seen in her back profile patiently waiting. The timeless wait, evidently is for her love interest. Her surroundings contain tender natural elements, such as, birds, flowers, foliage, etc. The compositions depict innocent sensuality and the surroundings provide glimpses of positive aspiration of life. Often the lady in languid leisure is seen to sit on stony textural back ground.
