wai-wada,"door" for sale


another one on mdf.
Indeed a door and a wiindow of old Maharashtrian wada is a wonderful subject..i love painting doors and a windows..yet..around here the subject is little too popular these days and becoming kind o clitche.
but why should i worry because the subj. is clitche, if i love to paint it..
But there is always a tiny thought ,this could be more salable..??...who cares...
i call it" door" for sale and paint it happily.

Your doors are always very mystique .so I always wait to see your new perspective and presentation.

Fantastic!

Is there anything truly new to paint under the sun? The new thing is that YOU have chosen to paint the subject in this place and time. I love this, especially the unfinished edges which really brings the viewer in to the subject. Really fine!

Unique idea today may become cliché tomorrow. Who would have imagined that everybody would want to paint cycles and riskhaws before your book came out?

Well done on painting what you want to paint - never mind the cliche - I do so agree with Ajay on this one.

Beautifully rendered and somewhat mysterious. It's an intriguing painting.

Hi Milind,
It's amazing, the way you highlight the color that you want to focus the viewer on, in each of your paintings... in this case, the old red. Can almost feel the texture of that doorway.. lovely.
