Unkown Artists

I have always admired artists and people with good drawing skills. So imagine what a lovely surprise when I arrived in India to find out the amazing drawings that people do with henna, also called mehndi. Anonymous faceless artists, who do hundreds or thousands of temporary artworks that will fade forever in a matter of days.

To some people, drawing is almost impossible, to them it’s easily done in a matter of a few minutes. Every time I get a henna tattoo done, everyone just loves it, which makes me feel better and happy…and the people who did the tattoo will probably never know the good they caused.
Today’s post is a tribute to them, all of these amazingly skilled people who probably will never be famous artists, but who still bring more beauty and joy to other people and into this world. 
Simple people who create beauty.
