Eastern Towhee for today, again new bird for me. Never seen and painted before. But it was fun painting this guy. Added some leaves and berries to create some interest in the composition.
This one is dedicated to my parents, it’s there 33 rd marriage anniversary. Three years back when they just completed 30 th One, that day my dad messaged me “30 Complete” along with a photograph of beautifully arranged flowers in front of God and Goddess (in Marathi देव्हारा)( a family shrine).
In Hindu culture on any given occasion we follow the ritual of Puja (पुजा) (worship) ( is a worship ritual performed in the morning by Hindus to offer devotional homage and prayer to one or more deities, to host and honour a guest, or to spiritually celebrate an event.)
I still remember that day. That year after three months my Dad passed away. My parents had always seemed to be happy with each other. They were an ideal couple, made for each other. We siblings never seen them fighting Or not even arguing on any matter. My dad used to take care of my mom like nothing in the world. She was his entire world along with us. As mom was very emotional and used to take too much tension. Dad knew her very well and he used take care of every single situation that it never affected her. He took care of her at the very last moment Of his life. It was so unfortunate that he passed away from severe heart attack.
But after his death, our mom is playing his role. Now she has became strong. She gives us strength. We miss you dad! Happy Anniversary to both of you!
