Babuji - an oil painting

3년 전

Although I never physically met this amazing man, I read and heard so much about him that I felt he was part of my life.

He was called Babuji, and he dedicated his life to the spiritual well being of humanity. I discovered India after his death in 1983, so the opportunity to actually meet him was lost. But when I painted portraits of him, I felt like I knew him.

"We remain entangled within the snare of Maya, without any hope of emancipation until we divert our attention to the unchanging reality at the root." Babuji

beautiful! I think the physical realm is not necessarily the only place to meet, especially with a soul like this! :) <3


You are so right! Thank you.

Thank you kindly artzone and @nmalove.

Great artwork and also, thanks for the information. I had never heard of Babuji before.

🎉 Congratulations @kathleenscarboro! 👏, your amazing Artwork has been selected to be featured in my curation post.


I definitely like looking at your painting of this man. His face speaks a lot of emotions, and reading your writing, I understand more why you painted him this way. Wonderful.


Thank you @scrawly, he greatly influenced me, and I still think of him often. A grand soul.

He looks like a wise man who is in tune with his spirituality~ Wonderful drawing, @kathleenscarboro <3


Yes, totally in tune. Thank you.

I love that you felt a kinship with him through painting his image. I often feel this way as well when I read old dead writers and if I bring them to life in a drawing, like I have done with Virginia Woolf, it does feel as if you are somehow touching their soul for a moment and if there is life after then maybe an instance of them are quickened and aware of you if just for a fleeting moment.


Yes we are lucky to have this special way to communicate. Thank you.

Stunning artwork. The portrait treatment is very appealing.
