Welcome to My Painting Blog

I regularly donate to charities. You can support Leukemia/ Thalassemia affected children(India), The Smile Train (USA) and other school building efforts by buying a print of any painting showcased in this blog for $100 (not limited to :) I will mail you the tax deductible receipt along with the painting, your donation goes a long way to help a child. You can email me at chirantan[dot]ghosh[at]gmail to arrange payment via Square/PayPal/cheque.

Ardent request as a painter PLEASE don't copy, even though, Picasso said, “Good artists copy; great artists steal,”. If you want to share, kindly send this page URL.

জটাধারী (JotaDhaari): Dreadlock hermit

Mixed Media: Pensil on paper, wee bit touched up in photoshop.
As a kid, I used to be quite a handful and my quite natured Thammu(Gramma) used to pacify me with self-made stories... JotaDhaari used to take the cake! I would imagine all sorts of fearful men/hermits who would take naughty kids away in distant mountains(I only heard about the Himalayas as a child) to teach a lesson for bothering adults.

... miss you Thammu and your stories!
