I saw the Bangle Peddler in Bangalore this summer. He was walking around the neighborhood selling glass bangles. Something about him made me get out of the house, have a conversation and then take a few pictures-- which I later used in painting this The Bangle Peddler in Color Pencils. The door to door selling is fast vanishing from the landscape in India. The dignity he possessed and the pride he took in his job were refreshing. I hope I have done justice to his portrait.
