Colors through your eyes, an acrylic painting

COLORS THROUGH YOUR EYES

How would I know of the beauty of the vibrant green color of the bamboo leaves ?
How would I know of the beautiful rich saffron color soil of the hill ?
How would I know the beauty of the golden sun as it rises and sets?
How would I know the beauty of flowers with colors ?
I am color blind,
I know “beautiful” and “colors” through your eyes and words,
Otherwise it’s a mere black and white sight.

A Walk in Paris, an acrylic painting

My father asked me why I am painting instead of studying (In his mind, I am in school and his little girl). I reminded him that I am no longer studying and am working now, and I paint as a hobby. He laughed and examined what I painted. I jokingly asked him how much my painting would fetch if sold, he thought for a bit and seriously replied that I would definitely get Rs 30. I responded quickly stating that seem to be a bit low, and he paused and said, maybe Rs 35. And we all had a good laugh together.

Another symbolic representation of Lord Pakhangba, an acrylic painting

Symbolic representation of Lord Pakhangba (depicting one of the Paphal form) in Manipur. I still felt a strong inspiration to draw another symbolic representation of Lord Pakhangba, even after painting the first one.  This is my 2nd attempt.
