Birthing Elephants

OK, not exactly but oddly enough due to being sick, it seemed like a major chore to get this picture done. I have always liked the Hindu God Ganesha. The fact that he is sometimes portrayed as a baby is also appealing to me. So here is my first Ganesha picture ever, inspired by Hindu art and by the book "Goddesses of the Celestial Gallery" by Romio Shrestha. The art is amazing and his work has 1000 times more detail than my poor attempt. But the style is still what inspired this. "Baby Ganesha", 11 x 11 Acrylic on Canson board. Picture 24.
