The man who taught me to make small notes, a habit which has enriched my life more than any other single habit.
Here, we are together at Palam Vihar, with a Landscape painting presented to us by Mrs.Ramachandran, wife of Brigadier Ramachandran, a senior anesthetist and colleague of my father.
Again, the changing dynamics of life, with death, jobs, life carrying us to distant lands.
We talk to each other on phone, but have not met each other physically for some years.
But the habit of making notes remains.
Last night, I sat down with the notes of Albert Cuyp-A Dutch landscape painter and made a sketch study of “The Maas at Dordrecht with Fishing Boats”.(1650)
Albert Cuyp’s had a mastery of conveying the different seasons and even different times of the day, suffusing he figures of humans and animlas with brilliant sunshine.
The richness which comes from making notes, to later reflect on them, adds great dimensions to life-Thank you Mausaji…
Whenever I make notes, be it the Radiology differentials or Camille Pissaro’s nuances amongst the Impressionists, or the discussions of Photosecession group of Steiglitz, there is a thank you and remembrance to you.
