Paintings by children
Painting by Sudipta Ghosh (8 years), Howrah, West Bengal
Title: Habit, Medium & Base: Pen on Paper, Size: 10.7 x 8.74 inches
It’s a pen art of a crow reading books that simply denotes the habit of reading we should maintain always. I try to send a message through the metaphor of crow that in this digital world, we almost have forgotten the reading books which is actually a good habit for all, in this pandemic situation, more we need to return to this habit, as good book reading relaxes, soothes our mind, work like a meditation and in this digital era we find everything through internet surfing or mobile using, which needs to be reduced as it affects and makes us more lazy to search something. That’s why Habit of reading should always be maintained.
