The process of creating is also the process of eliminating.
After the initial inspiration, I seldom look up to see the scene, I let my imagination and the colours take over quietly and without fanfare or fuss… 😊 This, for me is the best way to overcome a block, if any.
As I keep my art journal, my emphasis is on the mood and feel of what’s going through me rather than making an exact replica of what lies ahead in my field of vision.
My journal is a collection of some truths, some half-truths and some complete lies 😁!
Nature inspires and
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…. 😊
Sometimes, for no fault of ours, we feel trapped. Stuck and entangled into complications not of our making. It seems that the harder we work to release ourself, the tighter we get stuck.
Occasionally, a passing breeze reminds us of what freedom tasted like… What movement felt like…and we long for that time when the shackles that bind us, shall release their stranglehold.
It might help to remember that if an errant breeze cut short our flight, it might be a storm that will bring our salvation… Let’s keep our eyes pinned on the lively blue sky, that awaits our dance with the breeze again… 😊

Of late, the only reason I scan the papers is for inspiration. The reading material leaves me sad, invairably. But, it is in photographs from around the world that I find some connect with humanity and beauty.
After the initial, visual input, the imagination takes over and results in some new, often soothing artworks 😊.
One of the biggest highs of painting is that there is literally no limit to ones imagination. If it makes you feel good, do it…! After all, it’s your art and expression, it be dictated by nobody but you!
A sky full of monsoon clouds, breeze and pigeons! Dancing, chasing, frolicking, just delighted to be alive at that very moment! It’s so beautiful to just look at them and say a quiet ‘Thank You!’ To whoever or whatever it is that makes all this possible!😀
