2) Inspirations row from left to right - Morning Light at Benares (Varanasi) India.

A fellow traveller once told be there would be places in this world that one feels a "special presence and energy" if you take the time to sit quietly and wait.  I felt this several places, but especially sitting on the steps of the Ghats along the River Ganges in Benares at 4:30 am, and climbing the steps of the pyramids in Cairo Egypt awaiting sunrise.- ( which one can get fined for if caught... another story for a later day ! )

Even though I didn't use the "India" theme in this altered assemblage, it certainly gave me the idea for which colour palette and vessel to use.
