Majesty

Majesty, 8 by 10 inches , oil
One of the most favorite places I have traveled to is Sedona. It is on my bucket list is to visit Sedona one more time this life time and paint the gorgeous red rocks plein air. Too far fetched idea I guess, but I have hope! Painting this from my album accentuated that hope.I am also looking forward to painting similar rock formations at our own Tirumala hills, I will, next time, keeping the religious agendas aside!

Survivors

"Survivors", 8 by 10 inches, oil
Everywhere in Hawaii, we can find these red flowers growing on the volcanic rocks. From a distance, it looks like red carpets thrown all around.At first sight,I was stunned, stunned by the beauty and the lesson it taught.Yes, they felt like survivors to me,leading an authentic unique life against odd situations.

My grand father was one, who never once let the tough life situations and set backs over power him, displaying the quality of resilience and emerging out successfully. I would like to be like him and these red flowers, well, at least I am trying!

To the Fort

To the Fort, 8 by 10 inches, oil
Last week, it was time for our annual visit to Tirupathi( The richest temple and the most visited in the world!) and on the way, one can not miss the Chandragiri Fort if traveling from Bangalore. Built in 11th century, I have visited it many times. But this time, I chose to admire it from a distance.Taking an excuse to make a quick purchase of tender coconuts, we stood for a while and enjoyed the view.To be honest, more than the view, my intention was to help the coconut guy make a quick buck.The hope on his face lights up with each passing vehicle and I never once feel like not stopping! He also had garden fresh carrots and beans that I bought bagfuls to be distributed to the lady sweeping staff who keep our streets clean. As a coincidence my husband sent me this quote today that I felt like sharing with this post.
"I learned to give not because I have much, but because I know exactly how it feels to have nothing"
