At the start — 2-months ago.
June 15, 2020


She has declared that it is finished. Took her just over 2-months working nearly every day.

You have to see it. Pictures don’t do it justice. I feel SO lucky. I get to see it everyday. It is in our TV room.

What can I say? I am HAPPY. I am delighted.

The only question now is … what wall next?

The Great ‘Titian’ Would Have Approved Of His Modern Namesake ‘Teischan’ (14) — The Renaissance Girl.

by Anura Guruge

The great renaissance artists prided themselves on being multifaceted; multitalented. They could adroitly turn their hands to many things. Well, Teischan is following suit.

Today she wanted to use the power saw to cut some shelves to size. She has been proficiently using this saw for the last 2-years. I am impressed. I just stand & watch — and take pictures much to her chagrin.

So, this is her Summer. The 5′ mandala is nearly done. So, in between, she is RE-MODELLING her room — YET again. She does this like 3-times a year — Summer, Christmas & Easter.

Well, I am NOT complaining. I am TRYING to get her to start DRIVING. She has a CAR. Yes, a Jag. SMILE. Not mine. I have a Jag. She has a Jag.

These pictures really don’t do it justice. I have to figure out how to get the best lighting. Not as easy as it may sound. The lights reflect off the paint!

It is blinking beautiful. Not finished yet. She has taken a few days off.

I will keep you posted. SMILE.

The Fine Art On Display At Dartmouth Hitchcock (Lebanon) — July 9, 2020,

by Anura Guruge


Click pictures to ENLARGE.

Attribution WILL be enforced.








I have been visiting Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (in Lebanon), on a fairly regular basis, for the last 15-years. NO. I have yet to see a doctor, for myself, in all those years — & probably upwards 50 visits. Well for a start Teischan was born there (in 2006). That alone necessitated quite a few trips.

I always enjoy visiting DMHC. It is like going to a fancy country club than a hospital. The way they have cleverly arranged it, you never see any sick folk per se. Plus they have all this great artwork & often, even folks playing the many grand pianos scattered around the place.

Today was no exception. Lot of nice art. I wanted to share them with YOU. Enjoy. SMILE.

Father’s Day 2020 — From My 14-Year Old Artist, Teischan (Named After ‘Titian’).

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



What can I say? First things she said was that this was ALL she could do this year because she was BUSY!

It is true that she is painting another wall. Yes, an entire wall. 4th one she is painting, IF I have it right. Might be 5th.

So, how can I complain. All I know is that Titian probably would not complain that I named her after him — & did so 3-months BEFORE she was born!

A Modern Day ‘Sistine Ceiling’ Starts To Take Shape.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


OK, it is a wall rather than a ceiling, & it is paint as opposed to a fresco. Plus, Michelangelo had at least 35-years on her.

I named ‘her’ (though I did NOT know whether it was a he or she at the time) after the great Titian 6-months BEFORE she was born. True, Titian was not much into large scale works but I am sure he would have approved. I couldn’t go with ‘Michelangelo’ because it had to be BOTH unisex & subtle. Hence, Teischan.

All the walls in her room are painted. They tell a story!

She is now branching out. This is a wall in the family room! It is HER house. I can’t sell it. She wants it the way it is. She moved here when she was 1. Only house she remembers. Only house she has lived in since she was 1. It is hers! So, she can do what she wants. No. No. No. She is not indulged. And heaven forbid, she is definitely not spoilt. SMILE.

I have permission to take pictures of this wall! I can’t post pictures of her other walls. She doesn’t want the world to see them. It is her story, her walls.

I have to buy the paint. So, this is how she is going to pay me: “you can take pictures of the wall“!

So, stay tuned. She is still waiting on 8 colors. 3 came today (Sunday). It will take some time before this is finished.

P.S., I was just thinking as I took this picture. If only Michelangelo had had 1,500W lighting rather than candles.

The Amazing ART You Get For Christmas When You Have A Gifted Daughter.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.



We are very lucky. We know that. Only problem is that we are out of wallspace and she is very fussy about where her artwork is displayed!

She was working on these for at least 4-days leading up to Christmas. We could not go into her craft area. Since she has been doing this for at least the last 5-years we knew that we would be getting ART but had no idea what to expect. This was a new style. Spectacular.

Enjoy.

NO. She will NOT sell her work!

Teischan And Her Henna — Day #2.

Today’s attempt, this time on mother’s hand.

What she did on her hands yesterday has now faded into a light, muted brown. I gather that it will darken with time. Wow. I had never paid attention to the process. Interesting. Well, you will learn all about it if you keep up with these posts. SMILE.

Teischan Has Taken Her Mandala Prowess To Embrace Henna — Her 1st Attempt!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Very first attempt. We got her the henna yesterday.

Yesterday she drew these test patterns for future use.


She is doing the ‘Saturn’ patten on my hand for Thanksgiving!

What can I say?

And some folks wonder why I am not worried about her future — given her disinterest in academics. I think she will do OK. SMILE.

Well, brace yourself. Henna here we come.
