Happy to be alive, 2 new paintings, busy weekend ahead!

Last two days were scary a well as exciting. What is being called the biggest experiment in the history of mankind, is underway at CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research),  very close to where we are. The 'Big Bang' experiment, where particle physicists are trying to recreate conditions right after the big bang.

If you are thinking 'why is dee posting on particle physics instead of her new artwork?!', here is the answer. This experiment has been highly debated because some scientists have suggested that there is a possibility of the creation of 'micro black-holes' that could potentially lead to a catastrophic end of our planet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Though the head honchos at CERN reassured that nothing of that nature is possible, everyone was, and probably still is, anxious about the final outcome. Only time will tell. 

Well, I am glad we are still alive and haven't been sucked into a terrible earthquake or something! Phew!

Moving on to my new paintings, I think this theme was a direct result of the fact that two of my very dear Bengali friends are getting married this year. The paintings depict an elderly Bengali couple, probably the groom's parents at the wedding. The lady carries a decorative platter of ornamented  fish which is supposed to be auspicious and an essential part of the initial wedding ceremony.

The two canvases measure 20 cm x 20 cm each and will be sold as a couple!
Mango leaves and flower garland s on both sides adorn the set up for the ceremony.
I plan to put all my recent paintings up on etsy by this weekend.
 ''Nani's Lullaby'' and ''Ganeshji'' have already been sold, I will list the rest.

Jane's cloth and clay doll workshop starts next week, I got myself a sewing machine and a scanner/ printer, so I will be starting off with prints for the shop soon.
Will attempt to learn the basics of sewing so that I am not a mess at the workshop, LOL!

Dee! I love all your paintings...they are absolutely beautiful. No offense...forget etsy and ebay---these babies belong in some upscale, expensive gallery for at least a grand or two a piece!!!

Peace & Love.

I looked through your Etsy store for the Bengali Couple. I am so much in love with them. Is there a possibility that you will put them for sale again??
