Ganesha for Diwali contest!
Here is a Rangoli of a side-lying Ganesha inspired by a Tanjore painting which I made for our Hindu Temple in Canton, Michigan. The temple celebrates Diwali by letting kids and adults make Rangolis inside the temple a week before Diwali, every year! That is the special importance Rangoli gets , here in Michigan! And its a beautiful sight to see little kids and adults create different rangolis with various mediums - rangoli powder, saboodhana, flowers,fruits etc. I am proud to say that this side lying Ganesha won the applaud and compliments of everyone there !

Wakeful gaNESa is watching everything and everybody from his swing. Beautifully drawn art work. Real flowers outside add an extra layer of prettiness. This year, I decided not to grade anyone. mAtangi ma'am, your enthusiasm and participation makes you already a winner in my opinion.

Oh...what a cute and stylish pose! I enjoyed reading about how much importance your state gives to this Indian art. A good way and opportunity to spread the awareness. You've done a fabulous job in both executing the design as well as in choosing the colors. Ofcourse, the glitter effect looks gorgeous. Best wishes and thank you so much for participating in the contest.
Rangoli contest 2010 results will be announced on November 20th at 6:00pm Pacific Standard Time (that will be November 21st 7:30am Indian Standard Time)
