There was this typical photo album that my mother bought when we were young.  And since I am the only one who likes to organize our family photos,  I took care all of it and make sure it is preserved and safe .  But  of course there are times that I cannot helped  if some pictures got lost because when the kids at our house checking the old pics and carelessly leave it somewhere…guess what’s next he he he.

     Anyway, I am not really into flowers as my usual subject  but, I admit that my talent become known when I made a simple sketch of a red rose as my homework when I was in Grade 2.  After that day, I become the  first and only female artist who represents our school whenever there’s Art competitions. Ok Back, to the Photo album I was talking about, its cover is so beautiful and I can’t help myself  to make a replica of it.  And I did.  I used oil pastel on paper , 13 years ago.

We all know that  India fascinates the whole world especially when it comes to Dance.  Each form represents the culture and ethos of a particular region or a group of people.  Some forms are purely entertaining and some are soul-liberating .  There are Dances performed in royal courts to the accompaniment of classical music and this was an intellectual art form. A very important feature of Indian classical dances is the use of the mudra or hand gestures by the artists as a short-hand sign language to narrate a story and to demonstrate certain concepts such as objects, weather, nature and emotion. Many classical dances include facial expressions as an integral part of the dance form.

Some may think their dance looks funny, but for me it is not.  Actually I made an acrylic painting on paper,  an Indian couple dancing, enjoying their company, the music and the good weather  is dancing with them too.  I painted this 11 years ago 🙂
