On a City Street

by Susan Abbott
This painting is from my series "Wonder Road." I returned from my 2004 trip to Rajasthan (a sketching workshop I taught there organized by my friends the Dehejias) intoxicated by what I'd seen and experienced, and over the next year produced these twenty-four street scenes. I wanted them to be like glimpses caught from the window of a hurtling bus (the odd and beautiful tableaus that kept my pen moving from one end of Rajasthan to the other.)
