26th January is the date when Indian became a republic. So 26th January is celebrated as the republic day and every year and on and around republic day a huge flower show is held in Lalbagh (Lalbagh is a huge botanical garden) in Bangalore. This year I went to paint there. And instead of seeing flowers I saw a lot of people everywhere. And then there were these F&B stalls where everybody was crowding around. So I decided to paint the people and the stalls. And I had good fun painting that day.
I attended Chitrasanthe yesterday. And thank you all for wishing me luck and also for visiting my stall. But I guess my luck was really bad this time and I did not sell anything. I wish myself better luck next time. LOL.
Next weekend I'll be displaying 6 of my paintings at a group exhibition at Alliance Francaise, Bangalore. It will be on the 4th and 5th of February. And the timing is 2 PM to 7 PM on both the days. A play will also be staged on those two days called Snakes and ladders. So you can, plan to visit the exhibition and watch the play too. My theme for the exhibition is Bangalore. I hope to see you around. Please note that it will only be an exhibition and there will not be any sales happening there.
Signing off now and wishing you a great week ahead.
