My idea of bliss

This is a painting I made back in late 2012 or Jan 2013, can’t remember exactly, but one thing I’m sure of is that it was pure bliss creating this!

I gave it my best,wholeheartedly painting every detail with utmost care- Β I still remember it took me days painting that cloth with square print, block by block.IΒ used potato to paint that background wall, and the scenery on the table calender was a part I totally enjoyed doing.

I had my own study table in mind while creating this still life,so deliberately included that apple to symbolize the hunger pangs when I sat to study πŸ˜›

I can swear that I never enjoyed painting more than I enjoyed on this one, it was one of those Β I did it with all my heart, but as it was to happen, this painting was taken my art teacher to keep it at the school! I was really saddened when I checked my art file after the practicals and found this one missing, because it was my most cherished creation, more than the canvass I was toiling on day and night ! I didn’t even have a picture of and was really determined to ask it back but then she had taught me for all those years and Β had kept it to display at school….so I settled with a picture of it at last. πŸ˜›

So all I am left with is this picture of it,

REMINISCENT of the moments I spent creating it-

a memory alive in my mind forever,

a joy refreshed every time I look at it!

Hope you’ll like it, happy blogging!

    G’day Hargun,

    You definitely have a sadness attached to the honour of having your beautiful painting hanging in the school as inspiration to others, thankfully you now have a photo. πŸ™‚
