Another Sleepless Night

Rajib Chowdhry -- I really like this artist & have been following him for a while now -- this is an oil painting titled "Another Sleepless Night". I like how the dishevelled bed can tell a story; it looks soft & comfortable & inviting; but clearly is not a place of peace for a restless mind.
(Incidentally, this also reminds me of my friend D who has always pondered about satin bed-sheets - -They look sexy alright, but how do people manage not to slide off them?)

And here's another painting I like from the same artist. This one is titled "The Morning of 27-11-09". Interesting, uh?

ha!! I love satin sheets......red ones, for that matter.......sexy, they are!!!!! :)

I think i liked the first one a tad more than the second ...the second seemed a little......ummmm...cliched???!!!

Moi,
No, actually I don't find it cliched at all... I thought it was nicely under-stated... and still talking about the dramatic event that it was.
Besides, I really like the look & feel of his paintings. To get that out of water colours is a feat by itself
