Hi Everyone, here’s my offering for today. It is inspired by one of the most beautiful books ever written, “Siddhartha” by Hermann Hesse.

For anyone who hasn’t read the book, I can highly recommend it. Basically, it tells (without giving too much away) the story of a high born young man who leaves the luxuries of wealth behind and goes on a journey to find spiritual contentment. I have read and reread it 7 or 8 times.

The artwork was a new style for me. Although appearing very simple, there is quite a lot of detail in this style of Indian art. I created the first for my partner’s birthday gift, I then worked a similar one and they now hang over our hearth, never to be sold!

The warm colours make me smile and remind me of the book so I love them.

Bye for now, the fibromyalgia is kicking me hard today so have to rest 🙂

I had such a great response to the St. Anger – The Artist’s Pain Chronicles, that I have an idea that I might share more of my past with you. I would love to hear any feedback from you on this or any other topic.

    I want to read Siddhartha. His face looked Mayan at first glance only because I’m unfamiliar with that side of the world.
