Additional Description:This work was done on a MDF panel and is unframed. The paint is thick and applied with a knife. Signed and dated on the back.
Done from a day out in the rural paddy farms. It was so beautiful to see the women and the birds together; the birds were not shooed away, but were considered part of the setup.

The disparity in wages for these women farmers is a matter of concern. Typically, women are considered less skilled and are paid lesser wages than their male counterparts. Gender equality and women's empowerment has to happen at the grassroots level.
Artist Statement "Art has put me on to the path of joy and self discovery. The process of transferring my thoughts on to a canvas through colors and shapes is gratifying."

"The practice of daily painting has given a new dimension to my life. Each new canvas is exciting and is approached with the same enthusiasm and curiosity that I held for my first one long back. I try to bring onto my canvas what I perceive from nature and people, the most inspiring aspects to my creation. The spiritual connection I make with nature and its creator is being transferred onto my landscapes and seascapes as I try to bring in its essence and seek an emotional response from the viewer."
Artist BiographyPadmaja is from Bangalore, India and lives in the US. Art has been a part of her life for years now. The roots of her artistic journey lie in depicting scenes from Hindu mythology in her own original way guided by the wall sculptures in century old temples of South India. Along the road of her creative journey she has chosen to express herself through contemporary impressionistic, expressionist as well as abstract approaches to painting.
She often tries to incorporate stories into her landscapes based on interesting people whom she comes across and how nature unfolds in every aspect of its existence. Bright and bold colors applied with the palette knife is an important element of what she creates.
