About two months back, around the time of vinayaka chathurthi, I started a project to make an album of 21 different ganeshas. It started incidentally. I had an old spiral bound book with strong paper for a long time now. In fact it used to belong to my mother in law when she used to keep photos in them. The photos found a new home and the album remained blank. I wanted to do something special with it and then forgot all about it. Then about 2 months back, I found a cute picture of a ganesha that I loved so much that I immediately drew in the first page of this book. I chose this book because it was on my desk, near at hand.

Later after a few days, I found another ganesha that I painted on the second page. Thus started my ganesha project. This book had 22 pages. That’s when I had an idea to make 21 different ganeshas, one each for the 21 different names of the Lord. I tried a different technique for each of the figures. Here I am posting each of the ganeshas I made with the Lord’s blessing. This project has given me immense joy and sense of fulfillment. I am fully aware that there are brilliant artists out there in the world who can make awesome paintings, but this is my humble offering to the feet of Lord Vinayaka.
