'Chitranjali': Art-Offerings to my father

 

January 12, 2021, Arvada, Colorado.

My father's 108th birth anniversary is coming up on February 23 (DOB Feb 23, 1913), about 6 weeks from now. I have decided to offer several of my unpublished artwork related to him, as a tribute to this great man at least once a week till his birthday. He passed away 50 years ago, but to me this was only an act of disappearance; he is still alive and I see him in just about everything and everywhere my eyes go to. There is no particular media or sequence to these pictures as I made them as they came to my mind. I hope, you will admire these unique art and enjoy!

"My Father is Everywhere": An arylic art on flagstone

When I saw the patch of white cloud caught in between the mountains across the lake behind our Denver home, it reminded me of the plume on his turban that he wore on stage. Dry, winter leaves of the nearby plants quickly joined in to complete the imagination....my father is everywhere! I painted it on a piece of flagstone.

"My Father is Everywhere": A Crayon/ball pen art on a writing pad

Here is a quick art on my father that I had sketched on a writing pad with crayons and a ball pen. The objective was only to experiment with some ideas for a bigger project before discarding it. But then I changed my mind. The raw art is like a budding flower; I must offer it to my father. Hope you like it!

Seed Art of the Mystic Enchanter

Here is my artwork based on a famous portrait of P.C. Sorcar. What makes it unique is that for colors I used a variety of seeds: for black, Onion Seeds (Kalonji); for brown of different shades, Dark Cumin Seeds (Shah Jeera), Cumin Seeds (Jeera) & their powder; and for white, apart from the board itself, Rice & Barley in selected portions of the eyes. Welcome to the Seed Art of the Mystic Enchanter!

'My Father in the Sky'

“What seest thou else
In the dark backward and abysm of time?”

- William Shakespeare in The Tempest

Now that my father is in the sky - in space, I always wonder how he is now, what does he see in the infinity, does he miss us as much as we do? All silly earthly questions crowd my mind - perhaps because I miss him so much!!

An art in black & white with Indian design

My father was a proud Indian. He liked to use Indian motifs in his items, programs and souvenirs. Here is a profile of him in black & white where I used Indian floral design (Alpana) as the main component for the digital, stylized artwork. Enjoy!

The other P.C. Sorcar, the family man at home

As the final art-offering in this series, I selected this particular portrait of him that I had painted with acrylic on a rough rock-tile. I wanted to share it with the world as this shows the real him, my father, the family man at home in his Bengali costume who always loved us and took care of us! I miss the sound of his voice, wisdom in his advice, and the stories of his life. I seek your blessings, father, wherever you are! I wish you a wonderful birthday - may love, peace and happiness be with you always. I miss you so much!
