"Kunku" abstract figurative by Manisha Vedpathak

Acrylic on canvas
This painting was inspired from one of my Indian 
friends who always  wear this "Kunku " on her forehead.
"Kunku" is a Marathi word for the red powder
that most of the married  Indian ladies wear on the forehead.
It is known by various names in different languages in India,
for example Kumkum in Hindi, Kunkumam in Tamil  etc.
 This painting is just a practice while a big one is in process.
