"Less is more" abstract painting by Indian artist Manisha Vedpathak

With the current condition in India, people are managing with very 
less cash in hand, by surviving with fewer needs. There is a cash
 crunch everywhere. I started this painting on the day the government
 declared that 500 and 1000 currency notes will be banned in an 
effort to curb black money, causing a stir in the country. 
People have left with only 100 Rs and below and cannot withdraw
 a bigger amount from ATM as well as from the banks. 
 Now I won't  go into details of the political scenario but my painting reflects what 
people are learning from this situation. LESS IS MORE. This is represented
 by the simplicity of the painting. I have just filled up the shapes with
 different shades of red and yellow and I loved it.

"Circle Story"....acrylic on canvas by Manisha Vedpathak

"Circle Story"
Acrylic on canvas, 24"x32"

I  enjoyed working this painting with palette kinfe.
I first painted the circles and I stopped, thinking that I have finished
the painting. The same day while going through my photographs 
I came across a picture of this crow who happened to land in our
balcony . There was some food stuck in his beak and was trying 
to find a way to remove it. That was the time I clicked him.
Now when I saw this pic , I could not resist myself  painting this crow
on my circles and I really loved it. it has brought life to my painting.
What do you think?
