Jain Temple, Ranakpur

by Susan Abbott

For the last week I've been away from my blogging post, working on sketches for a large painting installation for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (a new project I'll be telling you about in upcoming postings.)

Here's a painting from my trip to India a few years ago. I was in many rural areas there that are without electricity, and still waiting for their own New Deal answer for rural electrification--though their solutions will hopefully be based on solar or biomass, rather than coal.
