Ganapati (Lord Ganesha) is not just a god, he is a part of life for every Hindu. Sukha karta, Vighna harta (The one who brings joy and destroys bad luck) is how this lovely god is described in the Hindu mythology. Every holy function in a Hindu family starts with the Ganesha Pooja.
This picture shows Ganesha in all his splendor. It took me three months to paint this picture, because I wanted it to be really perfect. And it did pay off.
