Three longtime friends gather to chat as night falls in the village of Mithali, India. Bharti Dayal uses acrylics and vegetable dye on handmade paper to create this traditional Madhubani painting, an art style which originates in the Mithila region. The three friends wear colorful, floral clothing, portrayed against an intricate purple background.
