She is making great strides.

It is blinking beautiful! I feel so privileged to see it … see it every day … & to know that it will be here.

Yes, we are lucky. Thanks. SMILE.

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

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.

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.

A Visually Mesmerizing Mandala.

Yes, of course, a Teischan (13) creation. She drew this, in a few hours, yesterday. She is done with homeschooling for the Summer and as such has more time on her hands for painting. So, this was the outcome. I took many pictures of it. None of them do it adequate justice.

Over the last few years we have got pleasantly & proudly accustomed to these hand painted cards from Teischan. Of late they all feature her trademark mandala’s — some more intricate than others. They are special and we sure are glad that she can create them at will. I wanted to share. Enjoy.

Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.



Yes, indeed, you have seen this in various forms, BUT she did not deem it complete until today. She kept on adding detail. But, today she felt that she had done enough.

She has been working on this mandala, off-and-on, for nearly a month. It has become one of her favorites. Close up it is mesmerizing.

It is now up on the wall. She is very happy and proud. That makes ME happy.

I purposefully set out NOT to do justice to this b&w mandala with this picture!

It is too precious to be captured in its full glory by a photo that I am going to share. SORRY.

The detail on this is quite amazing.

Mandala Of The Day, By Teischan (12) — March 20, 2019.

by Anura Guruge

Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.


What can I say! She creates one of these every couple of days. We have a large dining room table with multiple madalas lying on it — and some 30 on the walls.

This mandala has ‘gems’ glued to it. It is a true work of art. I really must do something with it,

Enjoy.

It is a privilege to see these being created and be able to savor the real thing up close. My photographs, however, hard I try, do not do them justice. They have a 3D quality, especially when she uses stick-on crystals — as she did on this one. You can see a circle of them in the middle circle and on the points of the main star. We are trying to get her to sell these. But, no. These are hers and she is keeping them. Our dining rooms are rapidly getting covered in mandalas. I think we have upwards of 22.

Mandala Valentine’s Day Card (2019) — By Teischan (12).

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This was my Valentine’s Day card — created by her on the day while we were gone for an appointment. As with all her work — it is pretty amazing. She can now dash these off in no-time. The  blinking-beautiful Chinese umbrella, which she finished last week, however, remains her current masterpiece until she decides that she wants to surpass that.
