Day 35: India

No people whose word for ‘yesterday’ is the same as their word for ‘tomorrow’ can be said to have a firm grip on the time.”
― Salman Rushdie, Midnight’s Children

India is a place I’ve always wanted to visit. In my mind it sits untouched by time, unchanging over the centuries. The Taj Mahal would be the crown jewel, floating in the clouds of incense that fill the romantically battered India of my imagination.
I worked with gouache in this piece, trying to find the line between shapes and blur, and how far I could push it. The metallic colors and lots of white added that high key jewel- toned feeling I wanted.
