I’d always believed that cows were friendly docile creatures till I got chased down a busy road for patting one on its nose! That velvety nose had been so tempting, I didnt notice the horns till they were pointing in my direction! Quite obviously looks can be deceptive and so can the zillion movies showing docile cows. They’re still at the top of my list of animals to sketch, followed closely by elephants!
We have a saying in Hindi Bhagwan jab deta hai to chappar phad ke deta hai. It means when God gives it is plentiful enough to bring the roof down! It feels that way, at least on the art front, starting with my first sale in August last year.
