Nature always gives me inspiration for my paintings. Comparing the portraits, my nature paintings are calmer and more peaceful but same as portraits. I don't paint something simply sweet and pretty. You can see the beauty of the forms of lives which are delightful or ugly, booming or straggling, flourishing or lifeless. Nature is the best example to tell you the life cycle.
