Love the way you've absolutely enjoyed using all those vibrant colours Prabal. And I hope you had a great holiday.

Your previous post Soon I'll be Gone is wonderful and just a little bit sad - that people all over the world still live in shacks like these.

Liz,
You are correct. Lettting those great colors do their own thing on paper was real good fun. And yes people still live in shacks like this, but they often fall prey to powerful guys, who want to build a sky scraper. And then they are driven out. And in some cases they migrate to some other place for work. In any case their home is gone. Thats why the title 'Soon I'll be gone'.

Sreeni,
Your title is better than 'whisper in the woods'.. I think I'll make a painting with the same title some time.
