Description The painting depicts the conversation between two souls and the cat that is hovering around them.Cat has a special place in our life. Among the domesticated animals only the cat does not have a slave and master relationship with man. And this status gives the cat a lot of freedom.While watching these paintings you may start pondering over those irritants surrounding you pricking you now and then, some disguised as a relationship or an attachment and the mind trying to master the patience of a yogi searching for a playful compromise if not a solution.But it is the unadulterated, undistorted simple lyrical drawing that you missed often draws the attention.The simple lyrical drawing that breathes life into the figures and slowly absorbs the observer into blissful tranquillity.The drawing/painting is done with acrylic on paper using dry brush technique.
