In memory of dad

You know sometimes one feels like doing things even if they are not good at it. So it is with me. I felt like doing this collage out of some of the music sheets of dad's. As you know I am not good at this kind of art and yet I had to do it so this is what came out of my heart in memory of my dad...
I used a few bits from his music sheets which were falling apart and some I photo copied. So the collage has his favourite composers names in that cover on the far right. At the bottom 'Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring' that was his favourite piece so I put that at the bottom then I added some dry flowers for rememberance and a sketch of a piano since he was a pianist. Then doodled some music notations. I actually started out with just two colours but soon realised that it would look very dull so I added other colours to make it look a bit more vibrant.


  1. Shashi,
