Oneness with our World

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….

Freehand Fun!

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!

Soulmates 😊

In the studio, all pretence drops. One faces oneself squarely. Amongst colour and creativity, ones true self emerges, slowly but surely.

My studio gives me so much more than I give it… A potted plant here, a painting for it there, but it welcomes me with unflinching joy and security, everytime.

No matter with what mood I visit, it has the power to calm me down, divert and distract, encourage and attract, the best that is in me.

I think a space has a soul of it own. It forms a unique relationship with whosoever enters it.

In that respect, my studio and I are Soul mates… That bring out the best in each other.. 😊

Kids and Conviction πŸ˜Š

I met some amazing people during the Imagine Art Festival. They were uniformly loving, attentive, curious and complimentary 😊. But this meeting was simply too beautiful to not share!

I was sitting at my desk and trying to finish my ‘sketch a day’, when a cute little girl came up to me and asked if she could paint as well.

There was enough stationary and paints so I invited her to join me. She settled herself on the chair, feet dangling happily above the ground πŸ˜€.

With a look of great concentration and joy she started painting the petunia that was on the table. After sketching, she asked if she could share my paints and if I could give her a brush. Thus equipped, she proceeded to colour her petunia. ☺️

Her mom was waiting patiently on the side, clicking photographs of her little one painting.

Once she was done, I asked her if she wanted me to tear the page from my sketchbook for her to take home… She shook her head and said it was a gift for me! And that she would give it me only if she could write something on it first. πŸ€”

My curiosity was piqued, but she wouldn’t let me peep, and hid her message with her tiny cupped hand. 😁 She selected a pencil and proceeded to leave her message for me…

It read,

“From one artist to anotherβ€œ!!

She is eight years old, I think! 😁
