“Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious” – Oscar Wilde

The little birdie brought me back to my colorful life. I tend to keep my promise if 2 paintings per month moving forward.

Happy Painting !

Footprints

“Take only memories, leave only footprints” – Unknown

I came across this chick the other night, frightened and shivering on my stairs. I knew if I left it there the cat would eat it so I got it in. It took me on a roller-coaster ride since then. All it did was eat and climb and poo. I looked more like a tree to it and I didn’t mind 🙂 Finally after a couple of days we had to part ways….

However it brought me back to my art and I love it for that. I refer to it as “IT” becoz I couldn’t figure out if it was male or female 🙂

Stay Safe little chick!!!

“We do not want to possess a faith, we require a faith that will possess us” – Swami Chinmayananda

This one I did on the exterior wall, lets see if the colors survive the summer heat. My peacock obsession continues 🙂 . I need a pot for my jade plant.

Happy painting!!!

Gardening & Healing

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need” – Marcus Tullius Ceciro

I have been bitten by the gardening bug lately hence soaking in a lot of Vitamin D in my small apartment garden. Some researchers say that gardening helps reduce stress and anxiety. Some others say that the more you involved with mother earth the clearer your skin gets :). I don’t mind having all of that !!!

Happy Gardening!!!

“You do not learn anything by doing everything right” – Unknown

Happy Rangoli !!!

86

“Cultures grow on the vine of tradition” – Jonah Goldberg

The above rangoli represents abundance with pots brimming and overflowing with milk. The festival Makar Shankranti celebrates the Sun God entering into Capricorn(Makar) constellation thus Sun starts its journey in the Northern Hemisphere. This is also a harvesting festival(since most of our ancestors were farmers) so people pray to Sun for abundance and prosperity.

A chariot for the Sun God 🙂

Happy Rangoli!!!

“Fly high but keep the soul connected to root” – Amlan

Sankranti is also a festival when kids and adults alike fly kites. So I decided to make kite my theme. Actually.. the truth is I just kept making a square rangoli but still wasn’t satisfied because it didnot look complete. Then my husband came to my rescue and suggested I make the tail to make it look like a kite.  If not for him I would have broken my back on day one of the festival. And for what ??? so that the cow can eat it in 15 mins. I used rice flour and flower petals to make it and the cows might have thought that I was serving breakfast …. uffff

So much for my eco friendliness!!!

Happy Rangoli!!!

“Have no fear of perfection, you will never reach it” – Marie Curie

Peacock has been my recent obsession…. for no reason what so ever. Trying to draw all types of peacocks and in different ways 🙂

Happy Rangoli!!!

“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph” – Thomas Paine

It’s been a long time I have made some art, feels so good. However spending more time with books which is equally peaceful 🙂

“Not everyday is easy. Not everyday is the same” – Unknown

I need to get out of this black mode, looks like I keep drifting into it quite often. I will try this again tomorrow but for today I think I am done…

Formal Lockdown is over but I don’t think I am getting out of the house anytime soon. Better safe than be sorry!!! My work is also starting to pick up pace so I will try to keep up with painting as much as I can. I enjoyed doing art during these Corona-lockdown times and thank you everyone who kept me going with your motivating comments and likes. I wish you all a healthy life!!!

Stay Home and Stay Safe !!!
