The wonderful Amy from Maida Vale and I are having a little get together tomorrow evening at her beautiful studio space in Hamilton. I have a few paintings on display there. They will be available for purchase or just pop by to have a squizz and chat. 🧡 #sharetheshopfront
Happy holi to all my friends.. Holi is a Hindu spring festival in India and Nepal, also known as the festival of colours or the festival of sharing love...
The festival of Holi is also associated with the enduring love between Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Vishnu) and Radha, and Krishna in general. According to legend, the young Krishna complained to his mother Yashoda about why Radha was so fair and he so dark. Yashoda advised him to apply colour on Radha's face and see how her complexion would change. Because of this associated with Krishna, Holi is extended over a longer period in Vrindavan and Mathura, two cities with which Krishna is closely affiliated.
