INDIAN FLOWER BALLET
This painting reflects my sweet memories of the fabulous India. I was fascinated by truly amazing Indian flowers in my very first trip to this country. It seemed to me that even Indian air was filled with the smell of its natural flowers. I just drunk this smell. Incredibly beautiful flowers accompanied me everywhere.
The hotel in which I lived was lavishly decorated with different flowers – different in size and even more different in their colors. I was amazed to see a lot of flowers, which were previously unknown to me. Indian women decorate with flowers their homes, they put flowers in their hair and pin them to their dresses. You can see a beautiful delicate flowers on almost each plate with Indian cousins. It is not so much a feast for the body (but for the body too!); in a first place it is an absolute feast for your eyes, and I was enjoying these feasts so much!
When I returned from India and decided to draw a picture in memory of this country, I picked up the brush and she began to paint flowers, then more flowers and yet even more flowers. Indian sky and waters of Indian ocean came into my picture somehow rather naturally.
