Water for Today

Water for Today watercolor and ink by Meera Rao
India Art Journal 2015


When you see water in a stream
you say: oh, this is stream
water; 
When you see water in the river
you say: oh, this is water
of the river; 
When you see ocean
water
you say: This is the ocean's
water! 
But actually water is always
only itself
and does not belong
to any of these containers
though it creates them.
And so it is with you. 

Alice Walker

Hi, Meera, the colour is soo vivid and beautiful. The quoted poem is very lovely and thoughtful. It sounds philosophy. Keep up your work, Meera!! Best wishes, Sadami

The painting is stunning Meera! Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem as well. I have always wanted to paint these plastic colorful pots hanging from bicycles!

Meera, May I use your "Ignorance" mixed media piece on my blog? Blue is my topic this week and I love that one! Thanks for following me, too, and please let me know if you don't want it shown by me.
