dready art padmini with cow …



        dready art padmini taxi with cow …


there are many ideas floating around this image …

i'd seen a documentary about the demise of the iconic mumbai taxis; new laws in india doing away with old cyar, and the colour and the verve of mumbai struck a nerve …

then the other day at dinner, a street food inspired meal, I was reminded of the bbc travel show's about street food in mumbai … and at the same time two things happened, shirley was telling me about her trip to mumbai, and i was looking at the dready art of cars on the wall …

so inspiration was driving me toward it …

and i wanted a woman in the taxi, to flout tradition … to talk about the fear that women have in taking taxis alone (in india and elsewhere) …

anyhow, nuff said … i liked the idea …

Peace!

a dready in 2 pieces ...


        dready verbier backcountry - in 2 pieces 24x24 and 12x36 - original on canvas.


further down these pages is the beginning of this art, and an explanation of its inspiration …

in the end, after drawing it, what ultimately had driven me to draw the picture in the first place, was the expanse of deep blue sky above a small, clean, simple bit of white and i couldn't get enough of it ….

and so in the art's final incarnation I added another large slice of blue, a continuation of that gorgeous sky, and a sliver of white for contrast and made the art not one but two pieces - 24x24 and 36x12, two separate canvases that you would display together.

cool!
