The Pigeon Stories

''You are mine", 8 by 10 inches oil
"Wedding wishes" 8 by 10 inches oil


 "Secret Talk " 8 by 10 inches oil

You are not alone, 8 by 10 inches oil
Took a temporary departure from landscapes to figurative to avoid stagnation that I was beginning to feel! My existence in Oman is very much connected to the pigeons that visit me everyday at the window. First I spent hours looking at them and later on began to converse with them, these conversations became a habit! Trying to say a story with just two characters, the lady and the pigeon. The story is also left to the viewers imagination to elaborate further!

  12. Beautiful - wonderful series. My favorite is You Are Not Alone. I have birds outside my window which I look forward to seeing every day and mean the world to me.All different personalities, too.
    The wedding dress painting must have some significance...and you allow us to fill in our own stories, which I like. The Princess and the Frog comes to mind!
