Painted this one for my friend Malti
This was painted almost two years back. I was new in Mumbai and used to visit Malti a lot and my daughter was studying in boarding. She gave me a postcard and told me that this was a house in a village in Sweden that she had visited.She wanted me to paint it. She had seen me sketching on bits of paper here and there and i mentioned that I had done a few oils back home years back.She said I can paint this for her and she would be very glad.The day I gave her the finished painting(which took some time as those days I was travelling a lot at work) , there were tears in her eyes.She was reminded of the days in Swedebn when she had gone sight seeing.This is a picture of my painting on her wall in her guest room.
