Images of Sai Geetha
On a visit to Prasanthi Nilayam, India in April 2007, my wife and I were called for an interview with
Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
During that interview Swami asked "How is your tummy? "

I replied, "Much better. Thank you Swami, much better than Sai Geetha's!"
I had learnt of Sai Geetha's condition on a recent visit to her enclosure where I had been drawing.
I had the sketchbook with me and held it up.
He studied it for some time, looked across and said "now do paintings"?
"Yes Swami".
The following days were spent drawing,
alex-drawing
filming, and collecting reference in preparation for the paintings.
We returned to the UK towards the end of April, and I commenced work on the first canvas.
Just one month later in May 2007, we received the sad news that beloved
Sai Geetha was dead. The book show's a collection of paintings inspired by that interview.


The book was blessed and held by Sri Sathya Sai Baba in February 2011,
and awaits publication.
