Krishna Nee Begane Ba Ro - LAYA series of classical dancers painting

The 'Bhava' (expression on face) of the male dancer reveals his love and admiration for Lord Krishna.  I was reminded of the song 'Krishna Nee Begane Ba Ro, which became the natural title of this painting. 

Painting a male dancer was interesting. A wide neck, broad shoulders and slim hips - all were opposites to painting of a female person - and yet dancing with such dignified ease and grace caught my attention as I watched this dancer perform at the 'Khajuraho Festival of Dance'.
