Hollyhocks and HappinessΒ 

I saw a photograph on instagram some weeks ago. I admired it and then forgot about it. Or so I thought, till I was facing a blank canvas and just started working on it with no particular image in mind.  Then out popped the flowers from the subconscious and made their merry way onto it! 

The creative mind and it functioning never ceases to amaze me… The less I interfere, the more unique it becomes and the more it has to say… 😊! 

Story time!Β 

These three are the main characters of a children’s story book that will take form soon. The father is called Gyan, meaning wisdom, the mother is Naina, meaning beautiful  eyes and the main character is the smallest owl, the baby of the family called Bholu, the innocent one 😊

Depending upon the anecdotes and of the family, I want to create short stories and illustrate them too😁! 

Nature Calls😁

When the trees March

Onto your journal in September

Full of vigour and positive energy

You know staying indoors

Is no longer an option…

And it’s finally time

To dust those keds

Inhale deeply

And be on your merry way

Soaking in the rejuvenating energy

That only nature brings!… 😁😊

FAMILY Time πŸ˜ƒ

So. I found a swatch of very fine cotton muslin fabric and wondered if I could simply sketch freehand on it with a ball point pen…

After sticking tape on all sides, much like for water colour paper, I started off with one of my most fun subjects, The Owl Family 😁

Art teaches me so much more about life than about mediums and techniques… It teaches me to ‘Assume nothing’… Be forever happily curious and Never lose an opportunity to try something new πŸ˜ƒ… If only to create new mistakes rather than repeat old ones πŸ˜‚



All I wanted

Was to go to school

Meet some friends
Play the fool
Sing a birthday song
Laugh and share
Happiness and chocolates
Without a care…
But it went horribly wrong
For me
And my entire family..
The tears might
In a lifetime dry
But all they will ever ask
Is, ‘Why?’
Why did I fall
Before my time
Was being a child
My only crime…?

A Solution to Every Problem πŸ˜

Ward off the evil eye

With chillies and lime

Yes, it works…

You will find them

In most unlikely places

Like on zipping autos

And hole in the wall spaces
Everything will be fine

It seems to reassure

Take your reckless chances

Of protection, you can be sure! 😊
