    Artist’s Notes
    This painting naturally came out as a result of reading Guru Arjun Dev ji’s bani and feeling the emotions expressed therein. I was moved to tears by it so that’s why I had to create this painting of Guru Sahib.

    From Guru Granth Sahib

    ਹਮਰੀ ਗਣਤ ਨ ਗਣੀਆ ਕਾਈ ਅਪਣਾ ਬਿਰਦੁ ਪਛਾਣਿ ॥
    He did not take my accounts into account; such is His forgiving nature.
    ਹਾਥ ਦੇਇ ਰਾਖੇ ਕਰਿ ਅਪੁਨੇ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਰੰਗੁ ਮਾਣਿ ॥੧॥
    He gave me His hand, and saved me and made me His own; forever and ever, I enjoy His Love.- Guru Arjun Dev ji, 619

    ਸਭੁ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਹਰਿਆ ਹੋਇਆ ਮਨੁ ਖਿੜਿਆ ਹਰਿਆ ਬਾਗੁ ॥
    Meditating on Hari, my body and mind are totally rejuvenated, and the garden of my mind has blossomed forth in lush abundance. – Guru Ramdas ji, 849

    The above poems are the basis for this painting. You’ll see me paint a lush, flowering, garden, as a metaphor for the state of his mind.

    I was inspired by Bhai Harjinder Singh ji’s rendition of the poems of Guru Granth Sahib a lot. I would listen to the same song over and over again while painting. It’s very beautifully sung and it plucks on the chords of the heart.
