 Sree Lakshmi
11 x 13.5," acrylic on cotton

"Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, fortune, beauty, prosperity, and abundance. She is also known as Shreedevi, the goddess who bestows sovereignty, splendor, and royal authority. As Bhoodevi she is the earth goddess who provides food, clothing, and shelter. It is believed that Lakshmi was churned out of the ocean of milk.

Hindus believe that she chose Lord Vishnu to be her consort because he selflessly carried out his duties as the upholder of cosmic laws to preserving the universe. The goddess is also known as Canchala, the fickle one, as she does not stay too long in the same place meaning to say that one can never take prosperity for granted. Money comes and goes."
