This is the last of the series of paintings I did on Gopi Geeth, from Bhagavatham. Krishna playing on his flute appears in front of his beloved Radha and her friends, Gopis after teasing them with his absence.

"sri-suka uvaca
iti gopyah pragäyantyaha
pralapantyas ca citradhä|
ruruduh su-svaram räjan
Krishna-darshana-lälasäh|| "

Sukadeva Gosvami said: O King, having thus sung and spoken their hearts out in various charming ways, the gopis began to weep loudly. They were very eager to see Sri Krishna.When Sri Krishna hears this prayer of the Gopis, their words penetrate His heart. He is their life-breath and their life itself, so when they weep and speak in this way, His heart melts. “I should not conceal Myself any longer,” He thinks. “I must appear before them.” In Srimad-Bhägavatam (9.4.68) He says, “I am the heart of My pure devotees, and My pure devotees are My heart.”
"täsäm ävira bhüc shaurih
smayamäna-mukhäm bujah|
pithämbhara-dharah sragvi
säkshän manmatha-manmathah||"

Then Sri Krishna, with a smile on His lotus face, appeared before the gopis. Wearing a garland and a yellow garment, He directly appeared as one who can bewilder the mind of Cupid, who himself bewilders the minds of ordinary people.
