Picnic

Picnic, 8 by 10 inches, oil
What is better than a picnic while driving countryside! I recently enjoyed one that inspired this painting. But honestly,  when some people leave litter even in remotest places like this one it bothers me. I carry a bag to collect my trash and bring back home to dispose off. Only then I feel good about the picnic!

  1. So stunning, Padmaja. The textures you are getting in your paintings lend to an impressionist feel and the colors are always just gorgeous!

  2. As usual the textures and colors are awesome. The atmosphere has been beautifully captured. I do not know about other countries, but litter and trash are a major issue here. Thankfully we have started accepting it as an issue. Hope we move in the positive direction.

  4. This painting is absolutely magical..the more I stare and look, the more I see. It is not only a visual experience of beauty for me but very sensory and dream-like! The brushstrokes-textures-layers are amazing! I especially love the cloudy pink-creamy skies...beautiful! So wonderful that you pick up the litter..such a careless act of others and such a loving-thoughtful one from you!

  5. This is beautiful, Padmaja!!! The texture is amazing as well as the vibrant colors....Excellent painting!! It's a beautiful place and I can't believe anyone would want to destroy it by littering, but unfortunately it happens all over....

  6. The painting is exceedingly beautiful.It is a good idea to carry a garbage bag to collect the litter but many are careless in this regard.

  7. I enlarged the painting and had a wonderful time looking at all the great mark-making. Your colors are beautifully impressionistic with the warm and cool setting up vibrations to delight my eyes.
    Trash...the universal problem. I applaud you for picking it up. My house is on the edge of town and a park. I have to go out once a week and pick up other peoples trash. Mostly it is the younger people leaving soda cans etc.

  8. Padmaja, I wish I could be under that gorgeous tree right now! You did a great job on this painting! I feel the same way you do about litter. My school is right by a park. The way people just throw their trash on the ground makes me crazy. There are plenty of trash cans available, but they litter anyway. I don't understand...

  10. You have painted it just the way I like to enjoy a picnic - under a tree.
    Agree with you about insensitive people littering the place.

  13. Beautiful, beautiful painting, Padmaja! Love that picnic tree! I need to do this with my Granddaughters this summer. What fun! Yes. We will surely clean up our trash. Good advice!

  14. I could sit under that tree forever. I love the colors and textures and that small person enjoying the outside.

    I hear you about the trash. It's a shame people have no respect for the earth.

  16. I loved the style of the tree... The way it is slanting!
    I also hate to see people throwing litter around, I can never do that. I also carry them back home and dispose it off!

  17. The pastel sky is just lovely......what a great tree to picnic under!
    I don't like rubbish left either, everyone should take their own rubbish home.

  18. I love the way your works chronicle your own life, sometimes in capturing a simple moment, and sometimes in expressing powerful concepts and emotions. You are truly an artist, in every sense of the word! This picnic scene is wonderful!

  20. Beautiful picnic inspiring painting.
    As soon as we get into the forest we start eating, only when the boxes are empty we wake up and realize we are in the woods and have to walk..
    Completely agree about trash problem.
