What happens when everyday happenings are as fantastic as magic?
Will it create surprise? Skepticism? Or, do we tend just to ignore it?
I definitely do not. As you will understand when I tell you what happened one day when I was painting two birds on one of my canvases.
Believe it or not, two tiny birds – not hummingbirds, but only about as big as my index finger, flew into the balcony right outside my studio on the fifteenth floor and started playing, flying around from one hanging orchid pot to the other, and dancing on the terracotta chimer there.
Enchanted by the whole performance, I just sat brush frozen in hand, watching them quietly, without disturbing them, until they investigated my orchids to their hearts content, and flew away.
I felt they had come from some magical place just to visit me and felt so inexplicably happy!
And they flew in at the moment I was painting these birds on my canvas!
To me their visit was as magical as being assured that there are happy spirits watching over me!
It was as if they spoke to me!
Have you had any such experiences? I would love to know!
I guess, ultimately that is what I ended up communicating through this painting of mine, imagination is real and real is imaginary too! The theme of interconnectedness.
