No, it wasn’t for I. She made me a fairly rushed & plain card this year.

She says this took her 4-hours to make! That is a fair amount of work.

It was for her sister.

At the start — 2-months ago.

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.

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.

Other KIds Doodle When They Are Bored, She Draws Mandalas On Her Hand — Part II.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This is how she came home on Monday, October 21, 2019. They had had a long 4.5-day weekend off and it was hard for her to go back to school. So, this is what she did to keep herself occupied.

She gets bored at school — gets bored a lot. But, unlike others she does not, any longer, doodle on her notebooks or folder covers.

Very impressive. Looks like henna or even a glove.

Kind of surprised that teachers haven’t noticed. But, that is also tells its own story.

She comes home like this. This was today. Pretty intricate. Shows us how bored she was.

Very impressive. Looks like henna.

This one, I think, was from last week. We lose track. She makes so many. I think at last count there were over 45 hung up on the walls not counting the ones still waiting to be hung.
