Artwork by Shaweta Bahl
As a busy mom and wife, I took up art about 5 years back as an escape from the household responsibilities. Soon, under the apt guidance of my art teacher, it became my passion.
He has always pushed me to take every art piece to the next level of skill and refinement without expecting perfection but embracing the learning that comes in the process. He constantly motivates me to approach each piece as an observing student and an insightful artist.
This piece is a study of a flower arrangement I made for my dining table. I have used traditional techniques to build this piece in many layers. It is far from perfection, but is certainly a dedicated pursuit of learning and is thus named “Dedication”.
As an amateur artist, I have a lot to learn and every source of learning art skills is immensely valuable. I hope I can win this competition as it will be a milestone on my road to learning and creativity.
