8 by 6 inches oil
I am used to so many colorful blooms in Bengaluru that when I am in Muscat I keep searching for color and at once such instance I found this red jewel midst the rather bushy dry vegetation. Such a wonder I thought, no one watered it, none cared to stop and observe it, but it held high in perfect uniqueness, fragrance intact and in complete solitude even with the others that did not relate to it.After finishing the painting today, as a coincidence I read this quote on Lolomente's blog, that seemed so apt for this painting.
"It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude." — Ralph Waldo Emerson
