The Lotus invade my psyche… I dream about them in silent ponds, going about their business of blooming. I see the colour of water change around them in my minds eye… It completes my joy in the process of art making.
I ease out each leaf from the background and make them cluster around like friends. From their midst I make a Lotus rise, like a queen, regal and brilliant.
Art becomes more than just an act of applying colours… For a short period of time I play the role of a creator, in the limited universe of my canvas… 💕
or some reason its the flowers… Always the flowers, in all states of blooming and dying that grabs my attention… I can sketch and paint them for hours… It’s like there is no better memory of a trip than the blossoms I befriended during a leisurely walk or over a solitary cup of coffee…. ❣️

As ancient as time
Is a reminder

It is in drawing regularly that clarity has come into my mind about areas of life that are closest to me… It won’t last, because it won’t be long before something else, some other medium takes my fancy.
For now it is this… Our inextricable bond with nature… It’s beauty, it’s preciousness….
First it was the Sunflowers, now its the Parakeets that come to feast on the ripe core.
I sketch freehand at home, trying to catch the essence of fleeting images that are left in my as colourful traces.
I love the spontaneity of this process and the results are always quirky and energetic!

In a waiting lounge
Into a solid strip
And refuse to melt
Of seconds or minutes
A pen and paper
Are enough… 😊
