I have created these three pieces of artwork in August/September of 2019. I painted these with acrylic and natural colors on the natural wood surface. As the barn swallows love to live and make their nests on the wooden surface, so I chose the wood instead of canvas to paint barn swallows. They love to live inside the home with human family and be a part of them. Up until a few years ago, men and women used the woods, stones, mud, and other natural materials to construct their houses, where the barn swallow used to live with them as the family members. But later, the physical infrastructure, jobs, and other facilities caused most of the people from the rural areas of Nepal to start to migrate to the cities and the villages became almost empty. Thus, the barn swallows suffer with homelessness. I have painted a series of this story and here are three of them. As I have displayed few of my works of this series in Nepal, but even I am looking to exhibit this series in detail with few revised and additional works.
