Age is just a meaningless number


No, this picture wasn’t done by me. It was done by some one who admires me a lot. He thinks I am really good at Art. I have told him that I am just mediocre. But love and admiration are strange things. I fail to convince him. I have pointed him to Niall’s blog and I truly do not have even one tenth the talent that Niall does.
Nevertheless, he still thinks I am terrific. No, I am not complaining .It is quite amusing, actually. Not to say, it works wonders for my ego.
So, he wanted to try his hand at a collage painting. He has no art back ground whatsoever. He just wanted to do it, because I do it. I told him how to. He went through lots of old magazines, to find the pictures that he wanted. This is what he made.

I really liked it. For a first time and for someone with no art training at all, I think it is remarkably good.

Can you guess his age?
Will give you the answer in the end, after I get all your comments.

  1. That's a very colourful collage and it has a joyful feel to it. I really don't want to hazard a guess at the age of the artist as I believe physical age has little to do with what is in people's hearts and heads :-)

    Your work is excellent btw. Different from Niall's but that is what makes it yours :-)

  5. He's making a toast with you. Cheers! :)

  6. hmm..must be in his mid 20s or 30s..

    seeing as the rather funny pose he has made here..definitely in his 20s..

  7. Bobkat is right..it is a very joyful picture..and Misti is also correct speaking about the nature of the person..despite the age..blue is a colour that projects confidence..and here it surrounds him!..The brush strokes are also confident and at the same time constrained ie. not over done. As for the person's age..umm....the pieces of the collage are not cut out all that carefully ..so I guess it's someone very young?

    I love the pictures you post every now and then...!!!!

  8. Intriguing! I'm going to guess he's in his early 20s...

  9. I am going to guess 8 years old. When I saw the collage, and as you described it, I was thinking young adult. Someone in their 20s. But I know a little girl who is an old soul and she is amazing. I am guessing that this is an amazing 8 year old you have there.

  10. Okay, maybe 10. But not 9. Definitely not 9. Either 8 or 10. That's my final answer.

  11. I am assuming the talented young artist to be your son, he already has a wonderful grasp of color and how to make it work together.
    You are a very imaginative and brave artist with a lot of talent. I love your view of the world and how it comes through in your art.

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
