Get Playful! 

Nature inspires and

Keeps inspiring 

Till we have no option 

But to sit up and take note

Of its beauty and playfulness

And let some of it rub off

On is 😊

I meet many people who express their fear of color or failure to make anything substantial when it comes to painting, especially watercolours… My response is always the same, just plunge into it with joy.. See how the colours blend and get excited by that magical process. You are not creating for anyone but yourself and never ever forget that…. 😊

Art for Me… 

Some blobs of paint, a selection of brushes, a surface to work on and imagination….  LOADS of it! And patience,  to build up from nothing, a dream that exists only within you. An ephemeral idea that burns, sometimes brightly, at other times mildly and needs to be attended to. 

This excitement of capturing something intangible and giving it some sort of form for the world to see, is art for me. 

It takes me to places within me that I never knew existed. It introduces me to parts of my personality I didn’t know were there. It makes me observe nature like it might my last view of it. And while doing this, I miss nothing. My world is complete. I am in the world that I create. I am a bee hovering over a blooming Lotus and I am the shadow under a languid Lotus leaf…. And when it is all done, I wash my brushes and gently come back to this other world and drive myself home… Cocooned in silence and peace that even the raging traffic and piercing horns cannot penetrate….

This is art for me.
