I realize now that there are many things that i don't know about Mahabharata! waiting...will this be available in the US?
she's (already) waiting in front of the wrong one or sudden change of mind happens?
she's waiting in front of the right eggs is why she is waiting so long. a change of mind would be her problem entirely. neither arun's arunness nor garud's garudness would have been affected if the mother chose to walk away. (arun may, in fact, have benefited from not having had his shell broken before time by a restless mother). the lesson in patience was something vinata - not her unborn sons - needed.
no, i meant, you've drawn her specifically waiting in the shadow of one egg. i couldn't help wondering which one it was: the one she untimely broke, or did she, after all, sit in front of garud and then move to the other, shorter shadow-egg and check?
and of course, with you, am over-reading or reading between lines constantly :) as for vinata and her eggs, never thought about it that way. 'guess she would have been happy with anywhich. so long as something happened. 1500 years must be a long time to wait.
Could you occasionally write about the materials you use please? The drawings are luminous!
acrylics in the last three posts, water color and ink for a couple before that; but mostly, whatever i can find - or a mix of things. haven't the finances or the finesse to be more discerning about art supplies - crayon being the 'preferred media' for about 10 years before this :)
Can't wait to read Parva - it looks fantastic. Loved Kari. Just recommended it to my mother.
Unbelievably beautiful paintings. I haven't been so moved (to thought and to emotions) by an interpretation of this most wonderful story ever told in a long long time. The last time was the literary interpretation by Irawati Karve. I congratulate you, and thank you, and request you to let me read the blog. To be a part of the Parva.
wow. You can almost see vinitas shadow reach out to break the shell. Brilliant. Utterly brilliant.
its an amazing work.
