Feb 2016 challenge

Day 1: ROOTS

On reading today's prompt the first thoughts that came to mind were to do with India (my birth country). From there I thought of the most sacred syllable I've heard and chanted many times while growing up. Om embodies the essence of the entire universe. 

I tried to show the syllable in Hindi script at the center of the sun with roots as rays.    

I used watercolor and markers today. 

I love art and see myself as a creative person but I am also lazy. I have just never carved the time to get better. So I remain a beginner/dabbler of sorts.

I hope I show up tomorrow.

Day 2: PLACE (Horseshoe, University of South Carolina, Cluombia, SC).

I came to the US as a student. Many a time I would feel low and miss my family and friends that I left behind.  Going to the horseshoe for a walk always uplifted me.
