Oil Pastel

This painting is on a handmade paper with oil pastel colors.

Living in cities is an art, and we need the architecture to describe the peculiar relationship between man and material that exists in the continual creative play of urban living. The combination of art and architecture creates consciously or unconsciously great images in the atmosphere which converts dreams into reality.


Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.
-- Louisa May Alcott


"Life is a necklace, it is a circle of sections, held together where each segment is united but distinct"

Multicolour necklace

"A Family is like beads on a string each of them united so closely and colorfully that, even if one beads slips off, all the rest follow".

Beads Set

"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson quote

Back in my Colour World

After a long time i am updating my blog. The reason that explains why i was so offline last few month is :--> I have joined M.S. in education from the University of Houston ..:)
Since long i was waiting for my semester break to start so that, i can rejoin my color world.I am still trying to balance my hobbies along with the studies. As creative people usually don't give excuses, and they often keep their artistic hobby alive despite their commitment. Hopefully, i will be one of them. I found an excellent quote from "Tuesdays with Morrie" :-

“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn’t. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted.”“A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle.” “A wrestling match. Yes you could describe life that way.”

Keep checking my blog for new updates.

Fruit Of Life (For Sale )

This oil painting is made on canvas size 16 x 20.
Fruits and vegetable are the only real gift from nature with looks and money. Also, if we let the fruit rot, it turns into wine.
Fruits are real picture of oneself as deeds are fruits and words are leaves.

"No greater thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a orange. If you tell me that you desire a orange, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen"

When i started this crochet project i thought of making a teddy bear and even completed the body and head.But here comes the best part when i tried to sew it together it was a total disaster.
Out of frustration i cut the pattern and turned it in to my little fish...:)
This is the quote of the project for me :-

“There is no such thing as a failed experiment, only experiments with unexpected outcomes”

Piece of Abstract (For Sale)

This painting is on clay canvas board.
Size - 16 x 20
Medium - Mixed media

"Art starts with abstract"

All is very well when the brush flows, but then there are the dark days when imagination deserts one, and it is an effort to draw desert imagination on canvas. That Art you have achieved stares at you at the end of the day, and you know the next morning you will have to name it as a piece of abstract.

"Art ends with abstract"

Every artist draw a piece of abstract art knowingly or unknowingly.They just need the vision to see the abstract work.

Radha krishna (Acrylic and sparkle )

Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.

"Let's hold hands on the porch swing,
Under the moon
While the wind through the willows
Plays us a tune"

Coffee painting with mixed media (For Sale)

Dedicated to my Cup of coffee which is always with me and is real good when i drink it.It gives me time to think something new, a chance to be myself, and throw color on canvas .

“It's just like when you've got some coffee that's too black, which means it's too strong. What do you do? You integrate it with cream, you make it weak. But if you pour too much cream in it, you won't even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it puts you to sleep.”

Madhubani painting (For Sale)

Madhubani painting on sheet.
“I asked God for strength that I might achieve. I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things. I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy. I was given poverty that I might be wise. I asked for power that I might have the praise of men. I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. I was given life that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among all men, most richly blessed.”

"We may recycle newspapers and glass and take proper satisfaction for doing so, but we remain caught in a web of spiritual assumptions about success and consumption, progress and waste that effectively undermine and trivialize our efforts to escape."

Paper mache and tissue flower

Paper mache and kitchen tissue flowers....
“Most of us are familiar with recycle and reusing, but how often do we think of the third R - REDUCE? 'Reduce' is probably the most important of the three Rs because, if we reduced, it would limit the need to recycle and reuse.”
- Catherine Pulsifer

Clay work on Wood

“Each has his own happiness in his hands, as the artist handles the rude clay he seeks to reshape it into a figure; yet it is the same with this art as with all others: only the capacity for it is innate; the art itself must be learned and painstaking”.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
