Posting this post nearly after 2 and half years. Was busy with my little one who have turned 3 years last month. So was almost on a break. Not that I did not do anything. To be honest yes, did not do much on art and craft. Made a painting on canvas, which was spoiled by my little one while I was giving a finishing touch. She wanted to paint on the same canvas while I was away to attend a phone call and when I come back and to my surprise the canvas was filled with all different colors.  So BOOOOOOM...... it goes. So decided that will not leave my painting book anywhere here and there.....

Completed this painting some days back. Almost took 2 months to complete. Used to do when the little one is off to sleep which is always after 11.30 PM - 12.00 and then you are so tired to do anything.  Better late then never.


So I will try to be regular with my postings. Lets see  how regular. :-)

Got a recycling bin full of glass bottles. Why waste them when you could have a new table lamp.

Turning any rum bottle into a table lamp is very simple. All 
you need to do is outline black liners in zig zag fashion and use glass colour for filling. 

Insert strand of light. The color of the bottle enhances the glow of the light, adding ambiance to a room.

This painting was inspired by Trishla Jain. I have attended her exhibition in Mumbai in February 2012. Her art is very colourful & vibrant. Loved every bit of the exhibition. While I was browsing thru her art work along with my friend we came across many celebrities. Among them were Neeta Ambani, Sunil Shetty, Akshay Kumar.

This is my original work inspired by Trishla. I have named this painting as Seven Sins. All the seven sins are mentioned in painting. Do check out....

Do give me feedback.

Abstract art can be a painting or sculpture that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. The Abstract art is a collection of meaningless shapes and colors thrown onto a canvas. In such art the viewer interprets its meaning for him/herself. It can be a test of someone’s interpretation skills.

Abstract art is non-objective, non-representational, and nonfigurative. Abstract art is one without a recognizable subject, one which doesn't relate to anything external or try to "look like" something. Instead the colour and form is the subject of the abstract painting.

This form of art is Non realistic. Like any other traditional art where the artist visualizes what he / she wants to capture, in this art form there is no intentional visualization. The artist may start creating artwork without realizing the end result. This kind of art can be perceived in many ways depending on the interpersonal skills / creativity of the viewer. Many a times the audience is not able to understand what the artist is trying to convey. It is up to the viewer to perceive in their own way. 

I wanted to create a   Funky Abstract Style with bold colours, bright shapes and intricate designs! The shape was created spontaneously. I then painted in various shapes, one color at a time. For instance, first I painted in all the yellow shapes. Then all the orange shapes, then dark pink, light pink, etc.

I strive to create a balanced variety of shapes and colors. The idea is that the different shapes and placement of colors will cause the viewer's eyes to bounce around the canvas. In this way I seek to create a sense of movement and energy in this funky artwork. So I continue painting in these shapes until the white canvas is entirely covered.

The repetitive designs start to form funky, sometimes intricate patterns. There are many different shapes and colors, but there is an overall feeling of balance and harmony. I named this Painting as Teenager. A teenager is a confluence of passion, emotion, feelings, and distractions.  A teenager keeps questioning and is always mysterious about the future.  Aggression in teenager is represented in the red border. Red is associated with aggression. When I started this painting I was unaware of the end result.

Diwali is one of my favorite festival with lights and sparkle in every nook and corner. There is so much to do in so little time, at least for the working ladies,  cleaning, shopping, decorating, making dishes etc. I always feel Diwali without preparing sweets and snack is incomplete. Of course now a days one gets everything from market but making at home for Diwali is something different. 

Hope you all had a great time with your family and friends during this festive season. I had a great time. Sharing with you the lovely moments I had during Diwali.

After thinking a lot I decided to do Warli Painting. I started with the rough draft of the painting and thought I can complete it in a day or two. But I took almost 5 days to complete this painting. Of course during my spare time. Medium used is canvas, spray paint & Acrylic paint.

Well I am not going to talk about the Raksha Bandhan, we all know its a festival of bond of protection celebrated  between brother and sister. The central ceremony involves the tying of a rakhi (sacred thread) by a sister on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her.

This year I wanted to do something different for my younger brother, who is the crazy, irritating but my sweetest brother.  Brother is a friend given by nature which I realized after marriage. I can share all my problems with him. So this year I decided to make Rakhi for my brother. I also purchased rakhi from the market and gave him option to choose, which I normally do every year. I normally give a option of 2-3 rakhis for my brother to choose. Undoubtedly, this year my brother went for the rakhi made by me. He really loved and told everyone in the office that the rakhi he is wearing is made by  me. 
Dimpy I am really proud of you and you are the best brother on this earth.

Happy Raksha Bandhan!!!

I am seriously planning to keep up to my promise of blogging regularly. 

Glass paintings are popular artifacts. It involves the use of vibrant synthetic colors on glass as a base. The overall appeal of glass and semi-transparent paints together provide an ethereal look. Glass painting is a drawing painted on the inside surface of transparent glass, executed with oil and hard resin or with watercolor and gum on glass sheets. The effect is one of stunning clarity and rich color ideally serving as a connoisseur's delight.

I have made these paintings few years back and these are hung in my corridor.

Its been ages that I have posted anything. There is lot to talk about. I have attended a Indiblogger meet at Trident.  The meet was organized by Stayfree, UNICEF and Indiblogger. The meet was for the women bloggers only. The meet  was about Women for change.This was my first blogger meet.  The meet was very interesting and insightful. 

Coming back I have decided to be regular on my blog. I do have lots of creative work to talk about but somehow not able to find time to write and post. I have made this paining 2-3 years back. I have made this on canvas using oil paint.

Hope your weekend will be a very special and fun filled one.
Have a great weekend ahead and stay creative friends!!!
