Radha & Krishna

I have just not been able to get these surreal images of Radha & Krishna out of my mind... Krishna
RadhaThese are tempera on canvas by Kolkata based artist Bratin Khan. I can only imagine the beauty these paintings would bring to the space where they are placed.

I'm always interested in interpretations of Radha & Krishna. These are the most beautiful I have ever seen. Such a tenderness there. I would love to have these in my place.

I'm visiting you by way of my daughter Blue.
The colour and design in your posts is inspiring me to add colour (LIFE !!) to my home. I realise that it has been too neutral for too long.
Give me Reds, gold and brilliant green...!
Gorgeous..!
