It is something to behold. It is blinking beautiful. Her most ambitious and, of course, best effort to-date — and she knows it.

So, a week ago she was going to sell it to I for $90. Today, she wanted $200. But, we had a deal. She is on the hook to sell it to I for $90.

I just need to raise the $90 in cash. That is all that she will deal in.

Enjoy.

Is This Mandala Worth $90 (U.S.)?

Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.


Yes, this is Teischan’s (12) latest. It is on one of the mounted canvases she got for Christmas. The detail on it is pretty spectacular. If you look very carefully at the middle circle you will see a ‘T’. That, for ‘Teischan’, is a trademark in all her mandalas. She knows I like it and today, at lunch, offered it to I for $90! I am torn. I really would like her to try and sell it online.

Well, at least I got her name right! I named her after the great Italian Renaissance master painter Titian.

This is from HER Website. Yes, she has had teischan.com since she was 12-hours old! The domain was registered 4-months before she was born!

“Robert Dorr”, The Concord Embroiderist — A Modern Artistic Master.

That I named my daughter after the Italian Great ‘Titian’ might be a clue that I am ‘into’ art. I, furthermore, have been lucky enough to know quite a few artists, of varied ilk, from around the world, over my long life — with at least one of them, David Shepherd (1931 – 2017), quite famous (with astounding commercial success to boot).

So, it was a tremendous, serendipitous, joy to meet an undoubted master — deservedly famous and successful — in Concord, New Hampshire yesterday, at the ‘Kimball Jenkins’ School of Art, 20th Birthday, Open House. That Master was Robert Dorr — Master Embroiderist who also does mixed media, pottery and weaving.

Though I have lived with inveterate embroiders, some of whom were quite proficient, until I had the honor of meeting Robert yesterday I had never thought of it as a bona fide PURE ART — up there among the best. I was blown away. Some of his pieces involve thousands (or more) hours of work. Though it crossed my mind that it may be sacrilegious, his talent, labor and dedication reminded me of my idol Michelangelo! Da Vinci never had the patience.

Yes, I was delighted to hear that his work, deservedly, commands good prices from museums – and I also learnt that there are embroidery-specific museums. Wow. Made my week!

Though he was new to us, he is well known and celebrated in New Hampshire — a longstanding member of the ‘NH League of Craftsman‘. You really need to check out his work. He is on Facebook too — with quite a large following.

Teischan’s (11) Latest Painting Project — A Table For Her Hamster Cage.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


She has embellished it further. Click here to see.


She found this table, for free, at our local “Swap Shop“. It was covered in a cheap, stick-on veneer. She stripped the veneer off and set about painting it. It is meant to be for a hamster cage.

She is working on a large — v. LARGE — wall mural in her room, using the same paint. She is building up quite the collection of paint. Had to get her more yesterday. Seems to be taking her ‘Teischan‘ quite seriously.

Titian, THE GREAT Renaissance Artist, After Whom My ‘Teischan’ Is Named, Died This Day 441-Years Ago; August 27, 1576.

by Anura Guruge

Tiziano Vecellio, Titian, suffice to say is one of my all time favorite artists. There are 5 Italian Renaissance artist that I consider DIVINE and beyond compare: Michelangelo, RaphaelTitian, Sandro Botticelli & Da Vinci.

When I learned in 2005 that we were going to have a baby I wanted the baby to be named after ONE of these five GREATS — albeit with a unisex name since I do not believe in learning about a baby’s gender before they are born. That I picked Titian in the end speaks volume. As far as I am concerned he was the ‘most normal‘ of the five in terms of ‘family values‘ plus I like the range and variety of his work. As I tell people, I, however, faced a problem with the name ‘Titian’. I did NOT want a child whose name began with ‘Tit’. I knew that they would NOT thank me for that. Hence, Teischan — ideally pronounced as close to Titian. Plus, teischan.com was readily available and I had registered it 4-months ahead of her birth. I had the Website up and running, with pictures of her birth, 12-hours after she was born — on the same day.

A framed copy of this Titian classic has hung in Teischan’s room ever since she was born.

The Unquestionably Divine Sandro Botticelli Died This Day 507 Years Ago — On May 17, 1510.

by Anura Guruge


A good overview IF you are not that familiar with him.

Indubitably one of my favorite artists of all time and across all genres. He was magical. In my book one of five GIANTS of the Renaissance, the other four being: Michelangelo, TitianLeonardo da Vinci and Raphael.

His paintings are so timeless and mesmerizing. What a talent?

What an age that was. All these great artist, all in Italy, more or less at the same time.

Just spare a thought. He died over 500 year ago. 500 years!
