India is a country of different colors. I was impressed to find patterns everywhere, in architecture, decor, outfits… Very often in a poor street with a dirty road and falling apart buildings I would see a beautiful flower walking by, this would be a woman, wearing an elegant colorful sari. I would be charmed by this spec of joy and follow her till the last second.
We went to the silk producing area of Varanasi. We saw the way it was made, very often by hand on an old textile machine. Could take from a day to a few weeks to make one silk artwork. Please read my blog post to study more.
