So today I did this Radha-Krishna illustration for the inside of a cd cover I'm working on for
Jai Uttal's New Album called "Queen of Hearts" full of very beautiful - Full Love-Bhakti music.
It also became a gift for Neville Moncher who runs Karuna Farms
What was interesting however is that It's the first time I drew a radha-krishna in three years
and so I dug out the last one I did-
and was amazed at how much my work has changed and evolved in the last three years!!!
A BIG burst of gratitude to all those who've witnessed this evolution in the last couple of years! :)
and here's some beautiful Surdas that lay beneath the illustration three years ago.
And will now too :)
"Seeing Radha stand alone, Krishna came from behind and blindfolded her with his hands. But his hands could not fully cover her large and elongated eyes. They shone out from within his fingers as a serpent's gem which it had disgorged and hid between its fangs;" or as Rahu finding the sun and Mars together, had pounced and held them fast. Krishna does not have any self-interest, for there is nothing for him to desire or achieve. But he removes the grief of separation of those whom he loves. His eyes came close to Radha's, and his lips were on hers. It was as though the lotuses forgetting their opposition to the moon had opened their petals to be kissed by the moon rays. Says Suradasa, Krishna's loving embrace removed from Radha. the sorrow of her parting. "
