ARTE Art and Craft Souq at Times Square Center, Dubai

Dear Friends

I had a really good day at the ARTE Art and Craft Souq. I would like share some pictures of my stall and the rest of it. It was a great day for me though dusty and windy outside. May be it was great for those artists who were inside interacting with other artists and the art lovers who sauntered around savouring all the arty-crafty works. I was extremely excited!  I had a fairly good sale for a start (third display though). I sold five of my artworks; I really wish that they are in safe and loving hands and that they will be taken care of  :)

Except for the first photo, the rest are mine.

My daughter, Anoushka, totally excited :)

Dear Deepu!
Hearty congrats! It is really wonderful to see you displaying your art works, which are all your fruitful efforts! Lovely art pieces, dear..The one left to the mural painting of Goddess Saraswathi looks so nice and different! Is it warli painting? Also, your Radha krishna and reproduction of Yamini Roy's paintings (faces of 4 lovely ladies)have all come out real well...Hoping to see you more with such exhibition and more sales! :)My best wishes...
