Delightful Convenience Stores In South Korea

” South Korean artist Lee Me Kyeoung unveils a series of illustrations in acrylic ink. His drawings represent local shops. For the artist this represents the soul of Korea, indeed the Country of calm mornings counts approximately 33 000 convenience stores. Their welcoming and colorful facades are now an integral part of Korean culture.”

A Burst Of Colors…

‘Tickle her with a hoe, she laughs with a harvest’ – words of Douglas William Jerrold on mother Earth, read decades ago in Reader’s Digest’s ‘Quotable Quotes’ came to my mind as we walked past beds of flowers at the Dallas Arboretum.

My amateurish effort with a phone-camera.   It was one of those moments when I felt – professionals may not be with me on this and I’m not competent to contest – no camera does full justice to the ephemeral beauty the eyes see.




Paintings That Silence The Chatter Of Mind…

Dravidian Women – I

Reminiscent of an era gone. S.Elayaraja has breathed life into the faces and lives of uncaptured people … the common crowd in everyday moments of life. Exquisite innocent expressions with delicate play of light and fine details will captivate you with its like realism.a reflections of his thoughts each painting reaches out to you with the naive eyes of its subjects engrossed in their own little world of regular work…”

The Psychic Has Bad News

A very worried lady hesitatingly stepped into the parlor of a psychic.

She sat nervously in a high-backed client’s chair in a dark and cold room.

After the preliminaries, the session began with the mystic peering into her crystal ball.

A lot of details from the past were reeled off in a staccato pace that the lady was completely awe-struck.

Suddenly there was a pause and the psychic’s manner turned grim.

‘There’s no easy way to say this, my dear. So I’ll tell you what I see: your husband is a powerful man, but prepare yourself for this. You’re going to become a widow. Your husband will die a violent and horrible death later this year.

Visibly shaken, the lady stared at the woman’s wrinkled wise-looking face, then at the flickering candle on the table, then down at her hands. She took a few deep breaths to compose herself:

‘You couldn’t be wrong?’

‘I’m afraid not, my dear. The vision I see is very clear.’

After a period of silence, ‘I simply have to know one thing,’ she finally says.

The fortune-teller met her gaze.

The lady steadied her voice and inquired: ‘Do they find it out all in the end?’

The image is of a painting ‘Tools Of The Trade’ by Shana Rowe. From her web site at shana-rowe.artistwebsites.com: ‘Born and raised in Maine, I am a self taught artist and have been doing art since I was a young child. I work mostly in acrylics, watercolors and oils, but do some pencil, colored pencil and pastel work too. I like to paint a little bit of everything and love to put a fun whimsical spin on things.’

Here are some more from the artist that I liked for the riot of colors:
