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 :-)

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

  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.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
