Cosmic Dance of the Universe

I finished this watercolor painting of Shiva and the Cosmic Dance of the Universe, before Easter.  It was one I have been working on for a little while.  I used a photo of a statue from a college text book as inspiration, Art of India.  The painting was for some friends for the upcoming celebration of the birth of their second child.

Shiva, watercolor on paper, 2012.

The camera was not cooperating on Easter, and so my original shots were somehow lost.  Just took these today.  The saturated colors on this watercolor painting were especially fun to work with, I added the black outline for a a little punch.

Buddha next?
