Bengali folk song: Boro loker biti lo

DESCRIPTION

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.

The script on the painting is in Bengali, a language spoken in eastern India and Bangladesh.
Boro Loker Biti Lo is a folk song from Bengal. Roughly translated it means, "O rich man's daughter, look at your long flowing hair. All I want is to put a little red flower in your braid."
I love how the rich man's daughter turned out. Sexy, pouty, with shy but interested eyes. I love how painting people is almost like creating a character with a mind of it's own. Most of the time you are aren't entirely sure how they will turn out to be. A very cool woman I know once said, "No place as interesting as a face". Couldn't have put it any better myself.
And look at him, the poor farmer, head over heels in love.
But when it comes to the rich man's daughter, will love be enough?
