One night while strolling through my in-laws’ Chennai neighborhood, we found a little market. There in that little market we found something I’d been seeking for awhile — these mini paintings on Jaipur government stamp paper:
I bought more than I need. I’m having a hard time choosing which to leave out of a framed arrangement. So why not have YOU decide!?
Just leave a comment about which one you like best and tell why, by August 24. I’ll use Random Generator to choose a winning comment and that person will get the mini painting they like best! I will ship internationally, as people from many countries visit this blog.
Here are the five choices:
ELEPHANT WITHOUT SCRIPT
ELEPHANT WITH SCRIPT
See how detailed these are:
They are unframed, and about 8.5 inches x 12 inches in size. There are some flaws on the paper, which I tried to show clearly in the photos above.
During the evening walk when I found these, something cool happened that isn’t so common in our increasingly mobile world today. Our nephew ran into a friend:
This friend is the son of a (formerly) boy my husband went to school with when he was growing up in Chennai! Except back then these neighborhood streets were relaxed and quiet any time of day. As you can see now, vehicles and headlights are pervasive and invasive.
That’s why I like things like these mini paintings that capture a bit of yesteryear.
Don’t forget to comment by Friday, August 24 midnight U.S. eastern time, for a chance to win! I’ll post the winner here on Saturday, August 25. See you then!
