Ramarpattabishekam Tanjore painting!

I would say this is not my best of tanjore paintings.. I wanted to do this painting so badly for amma, for myself and started it 3 years ago. But unfortunately I lost little bit of patience towards the end, that the painting was only a 70% success. I honestly could have done it with much more perfection, something just wanted me to be done with it.

Lesson learnt: Please stop painting when you know its getting bad. Take a walk or watch a movie and get back to it. Don't do anything when you are not putting your heart in it.

The frame and the basic gold paper and colors saved it!

Excuse me for the reflection on the glass

NYC baby!

New york was not love at first sight for me. But slowly it grew on me with its beauty hidden everywhere and your interest leads you to those places.. There are SO many things to see- museums, galleries, broadway shows, famous buildings, people performing on the streets, fantastic layout of roads, starbucks every corner, stalls selling hot dogs, gigantic drinks to lovely paintings and photographs, and mainly just people from everywhere walking super fast like they always have busy things to do! 

Amongst all this chaotic beauty lies this HUGE Central park where you find kids playing with their family and dogs, ducks swimming, abundance of greenery, happiness and love in the air! I walked with Amma from Met to meet the others near this castle. We walked amongst traffic and hurrying people and then suddenly we enter this park and we find it so calm and relaxed. Its like you are meditating in Mount road :P

I simply loved this place. I sketched for a bit and made this watercolor painting after my return.

niagara falls~

Oh my! Niagara falls is seriously a natural beauty which made my jaw drop at the first sight.  The falls is actually in Niagara, USA but the view and beauty is completely stolen by Canada. By just walking over a bridge we entered Canada and got ourselves a treat by seeing the marvel of this humungous waterfall.

This particular watercolor painting of the 'Bridal veil' falls was done after my return to India last month.   

paint your own mug!

I painted on these mugs for my cute little muffins- nephews and nieces. Painted their names and current love.
It takes very little time to make these personalized mugs with ceramic colors. Seeing their faces light up and the big smiles made me feel absolutely superb!!
