This painting of lamps is my entry for ‘think monday think atc’ challenge--‘lamps’.

Seeing the topic it was diwali which came into my mind to paint.

Diwali is the Indian festival of lights and celebration.Indians give expression to their happiness by lighting earthen ‘diyas’ (lamps), decorating the houses, bursting firecrackers and inviting near and dear ones to their households for partaking in a sumptuous feast. It is wonderful to see the rows and rows of beautiful lamps , lighting up our homes.The lighting of lamps is a way of paying obeisance to god for attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace, valor and fame. It is not only aesthetically beautiful but has a deeper meaning to it as we are warding off the darkness of ignorance, of anger, of temptations, with the light of wisdom, love and freedom.
