I taught a sketching class at a senior center to which only one person turned up for one day. I drew him while he sketched the apple. I found out that he and I shared a culture and moved to the U.S. at the same time. I still speak and write Hindi, but he has forgotten, which scares me. Who's the teacher and who's the student?
This artwork is framed in a dark red wood frame and ready-to-hang. It is easy to change the frame should you wish to do so. The frame adds an additional two inches to the height and width of the painting. The dimensions listed are of the painting itself.
