If you’ve got to copy, copy from the best…..

My attempt at copying da Vinci. Let the brickbats come! πŸ˜›

Thank you Amy for reminding me that I had this post pending, and a doff of the hat to Pri for making sure I posted this. πŸ™‚

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  5. I feel that being impressionist is tougher than being the creator.. It’s mainly due to the comparisons and as creator, there are no flaws and those existing are labeled as artistic or master’s touch and let free.. πŸ˜‰

    Kudos to the impression! πŸ™‚

  10. Wow, the best copy of the the best, Dr. Hb!! I’m completely floored! Thank you for sharing.
    Painting, drawing, writing, photographing, working at the hi tech industry, and your are an Optometrist (am I missing anything). Amazing!
