A walk into a world
Of my own making
Where every stroke
Follows my command
Where flowers bloom

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…. 😊
Magnolias are blooming! Their large size infuses the air with fragrance and their white color gives them an aura of purity… Absolutely inspiring!
The exploration of childhood
When nothing was impossible
When joy had a definition
That included mud and water and sunshine
When laughter was second nature and a smile, irrepressible.
When life couldn’t be postponed, even for a minute
It had to be lived and it had to be lived NOW
When freedom meant running, with no desire to compete,
but running because the breeze felt Oh! So good..
When you were a winner because You proclaimed so
And not because the world did…

Inspires to paint
Drives to draw
Pushes to photograph
Cajoles to concentrate
Forces to be free
Encourages to be exhilarated
Nature is a teacher like no other!!
There is an owl that I see on my way to the studio. It sits patiently on one of the branches of a Gulmohar tree. It is plump and quiet and has a Stillness to it that is enchanting. Why is it awake during the day… When will it go to sleep… Are some of the questions that cross my mind as I pass it.
I would like to believe that it waits for me just as much as I look forward to catching a glimpse of it. I take the sharp left turn that leads me to the tree that it has chosen for a home and instinctively I look up.
I imagine it as a family man, taking a break from his brood to enjoy the noise of daytime which for him is night. And so I drive on, taking a picture of him in my mind, I add elements that I think are important in order for him to have a fun life… And I recreate that in the quiet of my studio and thank that little bird for inspiring me and bringing joy to my world… 🌼☺️
