Master


This is a quick work done on paper sized 8" by 8 "in water color and pastels.
Just an exercise to turn some thoughts in to color! When I feel like doing nothing for a while, I stand in my kitchen balcony and observe the road. There are hundred different activities going on the busy road that feed food for my thoughts and a daily activity that has caught my attention is this man who walks his dog every morning. What I found funny is that, a cute street dog follows them faithfully. The man doesnt care but his dog turns his head once, as if to say.. "well, I have a loving master, who takes care of me well, pity, you dont have one! " and continues to walk away. The cutie pie keeps following them up to some distance( probably wants to reply " Oh, I was only following to say that I have all the freedom in the world because I am my own master!") and returns. May be I am reading too much in to it, may be he is only trying to befriend the master and his dog :-)

  2. I would have thought the same story about the two dogs! I sometimes wonder what my dog is saying to other dogs. I always imagine it's something like, "See? I have the best owner in the world". Your painting is lovely!

  3. Very nice study, Padmaja. I've been doing more of these myself instead of using up my good paper and feeling bad about it. When it comes out really good I'm ecstatic.......

  6. Padmaja, I think this is a wonderful piece. The colors are exquisite and I love the story of the two puppies! I think it is cute that the man lets the stray walk with them each day!
