Sea and She

Seek, 8 by 6 inches oil
Seek, explore and expand , to be like the ocean.. 
Contemplation, 8 by 6 inches , oil
Listening to the waves and in contemplation of sky, the sea and the light around is a privilege. To be in the zone, to be in the present. 
Sea and She, 8 by 6 inches, oil
She is enjoying the ocean.. no beginning.. no end.. just infinite!
Sharing some of my recent works, trying out some figures! To those who are celebrating, have a great Thanks giving!

Rising the sun within

Catching a sunrise
Changing Colors
The fire that is inside
Blessing from above
Though I havent shared any posts recently, I am silently working to get back to my gear. Sharing some of my attempts to paint the sun, the energy giver. It truly helped me to bounce back with strength to return to the habit of daily painting.
Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.

 I found this quote so meaningful, for that is what I have been able to do with God's Grace..
"Never let your head hang down. Never give up, sit down and grieve. Find another way. And dont pray when it rains if you dont pray when the sun shines" / Richard. M. Nixon

A meeting at the Vineyard

A meeting at the vineyard, 1 by 14 inches oil
What is a better place than a vineyard to meet and catch up with long lost friends! The thought of gratitude to my friends who stood by me in my troubled days is what inspired me to paint this one. I dont have many friends in real life, I can count them on my hand! But each one of them makes me feel like I have hundreds of them. I have made many good friends in the virtual world through this blog. Some have fallen through, was not meant to be and some still going great even when I know I am not going to see any of them in my real life. I thank you all, my friends from the blog world for all those encouraging mails. Good health keeps evading me, so painting has taken a back seat. Painting everyday was a habit, but not any more, I only hope it is a temporary trying phase.One thing that gives me energy is my paints, I may not want to compromise on that!

That never rest

Yes, like our minds! Especially when there is a big decision to make in life, which path to take,( like what I am facing right now and decided the title), the mind keeps hitting back and forth, draws blank!
Que sera sera.. ! (whatever will be will be..)
Thanks for looking and all those supporting comments and mails, appreciate them so much!

In the mood for a quick sketch

8 by 10 inches oil on gesso board
Getting back to painting again. out of sheer will power. I dont know if it is good to push oneself some times when you have a hurdle to cross but nevertheless I decided to push myself, to feel good, to be constructive and forget brooding and self pity! I am thinking of introducing figures in to my landscapes and seascapes, it is a challenge for me right now but I thought some challenge was missing in my work, it was getting very easy to do those seascapes, so here she is in to my landscape. She probably wanted to sketch alone or may be she is expecting some friends soon, I do not know,  the story gets better with your imagination thrown in! Thanks for looking.
