The final masterpiece of the ‘Heat wave of Confidence’ collection is undoubtedly the breathtaking ‘Serenity’. This awe-inspiring painting is a tribute to a Northern lady, with whom I had the pleasure of meeting during my visit to the beach. The lady’s distinct features and the stories they told about her origins served as the inspiration behind the painting. As I conversed with her, I was struck by the profound sense of tranquility and inner calm that emanated from her. The painting is a true reflection of the serene and peaceful aura that enveloped us during our encounter, and it has since become one of my most treasured works of art.
