hands of an artist

    Prev Next

    About time for some hands. ( flickr.com/photos/algo/sets/350266/ )

    Artistic? See below. Still drawing at nearly 100. (Now well over 100.)

    I wish I could show her face, but I have promised anonymity.

      Art is immortal...so is its torchbearer....
      Art is...(to me off-course)...more of a sense...and sensibility only flourishes within caring cradle of a soul for whom beauty is not something to be seen, but felt; and for whom life is not just living but something more mirthful and meaningful.
      I don't mind seeing her face...even not knowing much of her...as for centuries they went on contributing amazingly to a great stream of expressions which flowed and irrigated millions of souls in diverse folds...We haven't seen most of them...even we don't know much of them...yet, we owe more than we owe to whom we know so much...
      Let the flowers bloom as long she honours this world by living and I'm sure it will bloom even when she closes her wings.
      My regards to a great life !!
      And, thanks to you surely for sharing one such life with us, my dear friend !!
      ( Now, not to forget...I must say..it's an excellent photography indeed)

      I keep coming back to visit this photo! I have it in a gallery! Love these hands so much. They evoke memories of my grandmother and mother, they whisper to me like a muse from an artistic ancestor, they make me feel good and whole just looking at them. Thanks for this wonderful capture... the photo has taken hold in my heart!
