Mandala 1

“The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities” – Stephen Covey

With my new job and new challenges I am not able to take time out for painting. So I went looking for Van Gough in a box, not that I would endorse that idea very much but this is the best I could do in my current situation and came across this Manadala book – Coloring for Calm. So now a days I am trying to satisfy my artistic itch by filling in colors into the patterns hoping for peace and more free time.

I found this really a good way to meditate also as you have to stay very focused while filling in the finer details. So coloring away and hoping for peace of mind and time so that I can get back to my primitive ways of painting.

Untill then you gotta do what you gotta do!!!

Priority

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

spring

Recently I was reading this book, “The One Thing” by Gary Keller with Jay Papasan; and got into thinking about priorities and choices. As adults when we have a choice and everything is at our discretion, is there a clear formula for making decisions so that we can make the best decisions for us and not trade them for just any decision?

I found my answer in PRIORITY, as long as we pause and think what really matters to us and let that drive our day/decisions we will have a sense of progress and can avoid getting trapped in busyness.

This painting was inspired by two thoughts –

  1. How important our environment is – we should make all effort to keep the earth beautiful as it should be so that we can enjoy living in it.
  2. How important our environment is – we should surround ourselves with people who add value to our life’s so that we can stay positive, productive and happy.

Random Thoughts!!!

Simplicity

“No amount of anxiety can change the future, No amount of regret can change the past” – Karen Salmansohn

Peacocks 12″X12″ board

It’s been a while I have painted something, one because of a relocation AGAIN… but more than that I have been overthinking a lot about what to paint and planning for a complicated project, but when I couldn’t come up with anything I just took the board and paint and did a simple art piece – which makes me happy 🙂

Wall mural universe – completed

Yeyy… I am back !!! …. after yet another relocation and a whole episode of searching for an apartment – shifting and settling in …

It feels good to back on the web …. and on wordpress… never thought I would miss wordpress so much… 🙂

So, I started this ambitious wall mural project back when I was home and getting bored ….

wall-mural-1

I was supposed to fill up only the vertical walls …. but I got too ambitious and crawled onto the ceiling too … 🙂

wall-mural-2

Maybe next time we will find a different place for the refrigerator and fill up that void too … 🙂

In today’s post I will share the mysterious universe I tried creating inside my home…. I am obsessed with the universe paintings these day  🙂 🙂

Enjoyed using SketchBook  Pro, a very light and handy tool.

And now, the inspiration for this art comes from the two naughty squirrels who climb down the coconut tree in my house into my balcony, and steal the crunchy bread crumbs that my pet loves. They also got used to the granola bars that I feed them occasionally, so the situation now is that they don’t touch the nuts and fruits I leave for them but they wait till I get my granola bars out. HOW ANNOYINGLY ADORABLE !!!

I am not able to capture the true colors and life in the painting. I am going to try some photoshop techniques that I am learning. But in the meantime just wanted to share the painting as I am done with it.

Started out to make a real life image, but true to form ended up making an abstract or whatever you call this art 🙂
