Praying for Mumbai


Shocking images on the TV of the beautiful city up in flames since last night.
It is heartbreaking to see that this is unfolding in a city that greets 
everyone with a smile and a warm heart.
God bless all the brave hearts who are fighting the crisis,
pray for this terror to end soon.
My prayers with the families of all those who fell victim at the hands of this indiscriminate act of violence. 
Love and Peace.

progress update


This is where I am, near completion but not there yet, not at all.
This is not a very well focused photograph, sorry about that, next one will look better (hopefully).
It has gotten very cold here, I think I need to start drinking ''chocolat chaud'' asap.

Work in progress....


It is a huge canvas, a beautiful shade of grey.

I have started filling in with colour, but I need to be patient with this one.
Will try to finish by tomorrow and post.
Hugs.

a cuppa frienship


Snapshot from Kolkata with my friend of 25 years, Promita.

I liked this tea (assam masala) so much that I subsequently 
went back to have it as many times as possible 
during the rest of my stay in India. 
That really helped because I was battling a very bad throat 
and slight sinus for the most part:((( .

'Durga'


Thank you friends for the warm welcome and messages, emails and wishes.

My visit to India at the time of Durga puja, the sights and sounds, festive colours and the overpowering presence and beauty of the Goddess.......inspiration for this painting. 
This is a bigger canvas than what I usually do, it measures 30 cm x 30 cm.
It is about an inch think, which looks great.
I am going to varnish and probably add an antique stain and hang it on a wall along the corridor.

Back in Champel


Posting after more than a month. Back in Geneva. I have not been able to paint or do much work with the dolls either. Most of the India trip was spent in visiting docs and clinics. All well now. It is not as cold here as I had feared it to be. Raining today. Missed you guys a lot. Thanks for bearing with me. Love. Dee.
