MY SPECIAL BIRTHDAY GIFT.....

The "ARTIST" ..Harshvardhan Kadam.

SHAKTI'S DISCOVERY


The concept behind the painting. Self realization of this woman happens in a cosmic ethereal space where the wings represent anticipation of a leap towards freedom. Her posture is submissive. She had surrendered her soul to the realization but she is no slave of anybody. Her being naked represents purity & beauty of her womanhood. Energies within her have found new horizons to explore & explode. I call this painting - Shakti's discovery.
Harshvardhan Kadam.



So my Friend Jaya, wanted to give me something that is really special, and that is me....
And she kept telling me that she has commissioned a painting for me...
Now who on earth gets a "commissioned" painting, only, of course if you are the Queen...
Or if you have a friend like my friend Jaya...(here I'm curtseying)
Who looks at me , but can read me like only , she can ...
And so she kept telling me , its getting done and will reach you soon ...
And stop asking me again ...its special and that takes time...

When I received this , I was speechless...
I knew that Harsh was painting me a birthday gift...
And he was going to paint only after he met me...
Artists ..I tell you...
But this guy is something else...
He is quiet, shy, intelligent and has the warmest smile....
And his work is mesmerizing...
I'm speechless..
All I can say is that "It's an honour"...
And "Thank -you" .....
OH MY GOD.......YEAAAAAAAHHHHHH.....


I'm just extremely and happily surprised , and starry eyed with this interpretation ...
Done specially for me...


I love you guys....
And I wish you all the love and luck ..for the collaboration you are working on ....

P.S. Sharing this with you, because Food and Art like LOVE.....is most fulfilling when shared ...
       Yup ..this is my theory and I'm sticking to it ....

    2. Thanks!!!! I loved the painting, it is brilliant!!
      How have you been doing Maria?

      I have been feeling a bit low these days. Just got back few weeks back from my India trip....missing all my folks :(( To top it I have moved to a different state in US (my hubby's career move)so missing all the friends I made at my old place. Just realised I never liked the city much when I just moved from Texas but friends really made the difference.
      Now exploring this new city and jobs together.....keeping my fingers crossed to get a good job offer.
