In adoration of Mother Earth, I visited a bonsai park in southern China and attempted to capture her divine grace via photography and color pencil.

Contrary to what most tourists do, I recommend staying in Agra, India for at least one night before seeing the Taj Mahal. That way you can witness the extravagant weddings-on-wheels that traverse the city at night. Music, dancing and wild colors paint the bustling streets as couples descend from all over India to proclaim their undying love.
Delhi and Jaipur are inspiriting cities with plenty of urban places to visit, but my heart always yearns for the sights and sounds of nature. So when Suresh sped through the countrysides of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh like a sparrowhawk on wheels, many times I had to wave my arms and ask him to pull over, especially when we approached these towering works-of-art along the side of the road. Stacked round and round into curious golden spirals are discs of cow manure called dung castles.
For this week’s art challenge, I had to draw something using only two colors, so I used different shades of green and blue and drew a panda bear eating bamboo.
