I am back from my voyage of the deep daily grind and have resurfaced to share one of my old but cheerful water colors called Summer Geraniums. I gave it this name when I discovered that the geraniums got deeper in color as the summer progressed, and these ones were my favorite color

These four paintings are a set I painted to express what I would like to see in the future of our planet- filled with animals, birds and color. The colors and shapes are inspired from different tribal art that I have seen in different parts of the world. Although they are a wish for the future they are inspired from the past !

Spring is here and I have been daydreaming about my past vacations in India and could not resist posting these two very old acrylics that I had painted almost 5 years ago after a visit to Rajasthan
They depict a woman in a rural setting and also highlight the colors worn in that region. Being a desert area the people tend to prefer deep bright colors in clothing to add a bit of color to their lives in an otherwise barren landscape
It is this region that is also famous for its vegetable dyes and block printing and tie dyeing fabrics in bright colors. The tie-dyeing process has a specific name called 'Bandhini"
Hope you enjoy this post, please feel free to leave comments

I am so inspired by the presidential inauguration and the great mood that I decided to write on the blog and share some of the great spirit of freedom and freshness that I felt
Since a change has finally come... I decided to share some of my pencil sketches that show landscapes that try to display a sense of openness and freedom, a feeling of natural grandeur and fresh air.
I use some of these sketches as projects for my art students and get great enthusiasm from them.

So after a great election and a great celebration of light at the end of the tunnel I thought I should break my silence on the blog
Here is one of my paintings that celebrates the festival of lights and shows a traditional women from India lighting lamps to celebrate 'Diwali ' the Hindu festival of lights that signifies the beginning of a new era and the end of a dark period
This is an older painting and is an acrylic painting on canvas framed in a wooden frame
As usual all reasonable comments are welcome!

So summer is here at last and the benevolent sunshine is bestowing its heat liberally over everything. So ends a period of "Waiting" for high temperatures and barbecueing and water sports and so on, that was my attempt at introducing my next set of acrylics called "Waiting"
These are also from my collection of old paintings and I have actually used Craft acrylic paints, not even good quality acrylics on these two paintings. Still they don't seem so bad considering that they were created so inexpensively. Enjoy, I would welcome any well intentioned feedback and comments
