The Strength in Numbers

Art of the Day
This is painting I did when I got back from India. The yellow "om" stamps are from a hand carved wooden stamp I bought from a street vendor. The"map of the human head" up top was a collage piece from a very cool book called You are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination. The other collage images of Hindu deities came from some beautiful cards I picked up in the bookstore at the huge five star hotel in Mumbai, India (the same one that sadly got bombed months after our return). The mehndi hands came from a notepad a fellow teacher gifted me. I loved creating this painting and I love looking at it now, it reminds me of my time in India and it warms my heart!
