As I composed this painting I was thinking about mysterious cats. They can sit so very still in the garden and blend in with the foliage. Almost like they had been painted into the landscape. So I painted the Gatekeeper into the garden.

Nandi is a bull from Hindu mythology. He is Shiva’s vehicle and his highest devotee. This bull is my version. The mythological bull actually has more human characteristics. This represents the sacred cow of India. I outfitted my nandi with gold necklaces as well as a little bird….his side kick to keep him company.
