“Ït’s better to be late than to arrive ugly”- Anonymous
That’s the best excuse I got for now that its better to be late than to be ugly :). I started this painting exactly 5 months back. I have a penchant for detailing and self-torture probably, the reason why I keep choosing paintings with such fine details. With this one I am happy that I am done. Hopefully I will see you guys soon with another painting, keeping my fingers crossed !!!

With the onset of festive season, this is my first rangoli for the season. Though the lines are crooked and imperfect it does capture the festive vibe.
Happy Shankranti to everyone celebrating it!!!
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 !
“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!!!
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.
“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 !!!
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 🙂
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!!!
Peacock has been my recent obsession…. for no reason what so ever. Trying to draw all types of peacocks and in different ways 🙂
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 !!!

I slogged to make it brighter and colorful and at the end I like the black-white ones better 🙂
