Love and Celebration Painting

Artist Ketan Jawdekar reveals his series of paintings based on Osho quotes on Love. One can be in deep love and yet be alone. In fact, one can be alone only when one is in deep love. The depth of love creates a deep ocean around you and you become an utterly alone island. Love has value only because it gives you aloneness. It gives you space enough to be on your own. Love Is a Door. If you want to taste the experience of existence, it is not via the other, it is within yourself. Created in the medium of acrylic these paintings showcase the dialogue within.
