My work is basically about the nature. In surrounding of nature, there is a feeling of joy and happiness. Now a days, human beings are facing towards modernization and moving away from nature. Natural things like leaves, flowers etc. are shown by me in my work. It can be seen that human beings are surrounded with nature that indicates love of human beings towards nature.
Males and females are boon of nature that is shown by me in my paintings. Different types of things of nature like water, sky, animals, birds and human beings are the creation of god and I have painted the things on my canvas. In modern time human beings are so busy so they are not utilizing the benefits of nature. So I have combined the nature with human beings in my paintings to develop the consciousness about the nature.
Thinking of human beings is just like the depth of ocean and height of mountain. So I have tried to show the co-relation between the natural things and thinking of human beings in my paintings. My works are semiabstract type that is helpful in sending the message in the mind of all viewers about my work.
In my paintings basically I have used blue and green color which shows the importance of sky and land in nature. Besides that other colors are also used by me. Since different
types of colors are the gift of the god which provides inspiration to us that life is very colorful in presence of healthy nature in our life.
