I closed class in April 2009 , as I was expecting to be preoccupied in the following few months. Sankar came up with a surprise (pleasantly) parting gift that will make any teacher proud. He had done a portrat of me in acrylics on canvas and presented this. Indeed I am a very blessed teacher!
Sankar has captured my likeness very well, as you can see in this portrait; as he is already a very fine charcoal aritst. But the pleasant surprise was because he had done it in color ( acrylic paint on canvas ) as that is what he come to learn. He has cetainly done me very proud.
Here you can see the portrait. Seated with me in the photo is Sankar, and Rajni Rekha- who is also an artist of her own.
