In a Gallery

My painting 'Orchids', which was selected in an International Contest Confluence and exhibited in Lalit Kala Akademi ( A prestigious gallery of India) , is now in the collection of a gallery and will get to hobnob with artworks of big artists! Am excited to be able to have my artwork in a place which matters. This painting is as such dear to me. When I called the person who had sent me the original flowers as a token from his farm, ( as he had done to many who had visited his farm that day) he was quite dazed and found it difficult to connect the dots. An innocent gesture of sending flowers from his farm and having them get on to my canvas and finally travel to Delhi and now being part of a collection!

Meanwhile, I am rejoicing in my heart. Where your art goes is as important as where your art hangs!
