Creative Spot - A Taste of Bunter - 1

Srianee (Bunter) has sent in the first in the series of her own contributions to Speedy's idea of concept of  "Creative Spot". As Speedy quite rightly pointed out, members of our batch have loads of their own special talents. The first in this latest series appeared a few days ago and Speedy himself was given the top spot to set the ball rolling. That was under the heading "Speedy on the Keyboard" but sans a formal announcement on this new series from the blog administrator. ND continues to display his writing skills (last article was on "Growing Up in the 21st Century"). Razaque has been sending in humorous sketches about his past life. Zita sends in her compositions in poetry quite regularly, but we are yet to hear from her about her talents at the piano. Their future contributions will be included in the "Creative Spot".

So, Bora (ballroom dancing), Suji (Kandyan dancing), Primrose (singing), Pram (achievements in social service and community organisation), Nalin Nana (scuba diving, radio ham), or any others who have chosen to keep their not so well known talents under wraps, how about sending in some stuff? Please remember that this is your own blog. You don't have to be modest at all!

I would like to extend an appeal even to our sportsmen like Lareef, Cyril, Harsha (cricket), Watte (tennis), JC (athletics), Virginia (swimming), et all to send in scanned copies of any old newspaper clippings taken from your scrap books or photographs. Your e-mails will give me implied consent for them to be published on the blog.

Back to Srianee's work of art.
This was done in oils from a photo that I took in Sri Lanka more than 20 years ago. A bullock cart with cement bags. We don’t see many of them any more.

  1. Great to see that you are sharing your paintings Bunter. Having seen them earlier, it was quite a revelation that you had talents in that direction. Let us hope that others will follow, Best wishes, Speedy

    Great.I am sure it is very relaxing to paint.

  3. I seem to have missed seeing this painting till now. Such simple and clean lines, such beautiful colours, such detail in its own special way! It is like looking at the real thing. Well done, Srianee! We are seeing these things thanks to Lucky who started the blog.
