My Mother

A lullaby for my angel
Always Behind me

Her Best Friend
Two most important qualities that I admire in my mother are selflessness and patience. She gave up her freedom so that her children could enjoy theirs.  She lost her own mother when she was a three year old baby, but tried her best to be a great mom to her children and to many more adopted ones. I love her for everything that she has been!
Happy Mothers day to all mothers!!

Beneath the Orange sky

Beneath the orange sky, oil 8 by 8 inches
This was a moment in transit! We made a quick weekend trip to India and while driving back to reach the Chennai airport on time we were really in a hurry but just had to stop the car for this moment. The setting sun made us get down and ponder for a few minutes. Needless to say I fell in love with the light and had to put this down on my canvas.

The Mother of God

Mary, 8 by 8 inches , oil
Christmas is around the corner and it has always been special to me, for the spiritual connection I have made and the experiences I have enjoyed. The inspiration to come up with this painting is from my trips to the Vatican, Pantheon, Duomo Cathedral ,Florence and Blue Mosque, Isthanbul. I have enjoyed the divine mother by various artists and here is mine. 
Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a great year ahead!

Resting, Oil, 12 by 16 inches
Without rest, there is no rejuvenation and without rejuvenation there is no strength left to continue the journey.
A lovely morning at the Muscat beach, the resting boats reinstated the above thought! 
I am feeling  rejuvenated and upbeat! Plenty of rest has done me good. The laziness to blog is hopefully gone!

Connecting to the Sun

In a way this post is about acknowledging and thanking the sun that is playing a definite role in my daily life. When I got very sick, I was asked to chant  "Aditya Hridayam Stotram" (a prayer of the Sun Lord) and it was composed by the great Sage Agastya. It is said that the stotram was composed when Agastya saw Rama being depleted of energy while fighting against Ravana in Ramayana. Well, When there is desperation for an outcome,  we would try beyond our belief systems, I did gain by doing so and I gradually realized the lighting up of the sun within.  Since then I have been in to surya Namaskar, the salutation to the sun with gratitude. Stepping out in to the morning sun and feeling the warm positive energy has been a priceless experience.
