  1. What a beautiful painting! Captures the essence of ‘watching place for fish’ I am no art critic but I just love the colours and the serenity of the painting.

    1. Something new I learnt about the Abenaki Indians from the ‘watching place for fish’. Thanks Lafa that was informative.

  2. I love Beena use of pastel colours. It is peaceful and gentle, giving us no hint that they and their rustic lives would soon be annihilated. Her childlike figures seems to hark of innocence…..but that innocence is lost to experience of war and violence.

    1. Hi Vimla

      Yes that is true. But I wanted to know how they lived before it all happened. I wanted to share what I learnt with others. I don’t remember learning much about their history. Unfortunately history is often written by the victor. Glad you liked the picture😀.

      Take care

      Beena
