On the way to Mysore

The scare crow and the crow, 8 by 10 inches, oil
 During our recent trip to T Narsipura in Mysore, we stopped by a few fields and enjoyed the views. The intention was to visit a temple, but we ended up spending a lot more time in the nearby fields.
Do the scarecrows really scare the crows? I dont think so! We enjoyed the crow sitting fearlessly on the scare crow and it was an amusing sight.

The Marigolds couple, 8 by 1o inches , oil
We found this couple working passionately with their blooms early in the morning. Very much in their present moment, they seemed to be enjoying every bit of what they were doing. Later on I talked to them​ and they matter of factually said that all their focus was on the quality of what they grew and not on how much they were going to sell, obviously there was a truck load of the flowers. How wonderful to do one's best without worrying about the end result!

Waiting

Waiting, 8 by 10 inches oil
This painting evolved rather unexpectedly, here is how it did. Last week, I was messaging my sister on Whatsapp and she was taking a walk near her home( in Maryland).She typed saying that she was enjoying a baby deer and took a pic of what she saw and sent it to me.I could not resist to paint this adorable one standing there alone, painted it and sent the image back to my sister before she reached her home, talk about technology :-) (Later on I worked a bit more on that to arrive at this result)..Needless to mention that she was thrilled to see what she enjoyed just then had materialized in to a painting.

Three is company

Three is company, oil, 8 by 6 inches
Before our son moved away from home for his higher pursuit, we three (my husband, our son and me) did a lot of road trips covering the length and breadth of India and during one such trip to Srirangam in South India, we found these three trees standing together and how instantly we related to them! The memory is fresh and every minute of the painting session was touching since I miss those golden days so much!
