Shiva abstract art work is infused with the colors which many see in saris, beautiful colors, patterned and beaded, just as the upper central blue in the painting is. Whether it is authentically Indian or not, it is the Bollywood version of India and that is an India we are accustomed to. The abstract painting, if that is ever possible, is so wonderfully executed and the colors and patterns are so mesmerizingly beautiful that one may look at it and smell India, as in its curries and the foods and smells we are accustomed to.
The oil painting background is overwhelmed by a fiery red with black white, orange and yellow interspersed within it. The bottom right corner of the painting thee appears to be a little hut with a white door. Nothing other than that structure assumes familiar form with viewers. As regards the background, it is important to note that in its most fiery colored areas, which are the right side of the painting, at its bottom center and a quarter into the painting, calculate from the left side, coincide with the black of the centerpiece. Hence, the fiery red color is interacting with the centerpiece to produce a black color, with some hues of grey in it.
The topside blue and yellow are beaded, and embrace a slight red pattern, with a slightly smaller, light purple color and a bigger red stalk. Since they are beaded, they allow recollection of India, in terms of colors and patterns, all blended together in a highly beautiful and uniquely artistic painting.
