Elephants and Adonna

Adonna Khare has been an art teacher in an elementary school and left her job to cope with her family chores. The Art Prize has given her $200,000 along with an appreciation for the flawless painting. The Art Prize is held every year in Michigan. With only a pencil, an eraser and a sock and of course the rich memories of her life, she managed to depict various gigantic animals along with miniature sketches of them. Adonna has said that the award prize money came as a cushion to her and she means it. She is going to spend the money to get her a mattress and also to help her continue her practice as an artist.

Being a busy housewife and a mom, she would have definitely struggled to prove her mettle as an artist and the award showered her glory and money, which she needed much to prove herself to the world.

What matters most is the skill employed for collecting, arranging and synchronizing together. This describes the transparency and vividness of Adonna Khare both as an interpreter and as a painter. She had experiences as many others have, but the potential of depicting every stint of happiness and sadness is surely not found in many. This is where; she deserves to be at the pinnacle. The award is not only going to act a financial buffer to Khare but an emotional support to rekindle her skills.
