Thank You Note!

'Eye of the Soul' concluded well and I would love to extend our thanks to each and every family member, relatives, friends, friends of friends, blogger friends, our X-Victorians and visitors for not only visiting us but also for blessing us, encouraging and supporting us, cheering for us and make us feel 'Awesome'. The press found it appealing and supported us with some great reviews too- Thank you! Thank you Raju N Kutty and Anuradha for being our first buyers from this show.

We were four artists who expressed in four different mediums. Kumar P Mookuthala's illustrations, Anil Kumar's scrapography, Satheesh Vellinezhi's watercolours and a synthesis of my mixed media paintings and my poetry.

Since I am posting this for my blogger friends, I would especially like to name Rajeev Moothedath who visited with his co-brother, Tennyson Thomas and Anu from Zafaran Art...among a whole load of my friends. I was extremely thrilled to see them in person as I was meeting them for the first time, had known them for quite a few years though:

It was a wonderful experience visiting the art exhibition"Eye of the soul"and to interact with Deepa & other artists.
Sorry Deepa for commenting late which was because I was away from the net for a few days due to some personal preoccupations.
Thank you for making our visit memorable!
