I have been inactive in this blog for the past couple of months. Sorry to make you wait with no update.  As I take respite from painting, you can see me actively blogging at Craft Pearls 

I hope to resume painting soon.

I am Back!

with 11 comments

I am taking a short break from painting but that doesn’t mean I am doing nothing. I have been spending time on needlecraft – my other creative indulgence- and once I started that I just couldn’t put it down. So the painting is at the back burner for the time being.  I have finished off a cross stitch project I had kept aside for a long time and then completed a table topper finished in kasuti embroidery. Kasuti embroidery is an ethnic embroidery from Karnataka, a state in south of India. I designed the overall layout of the motifs. A couple of them are popular motifs used in Kasuti.

Here is mine :

Three Years of Blogging

with 2 comments

I am really happy to announce that I have completed three years of art blogging. I have learned a lot through trials and errors and tried my hand in pastel, watercolor,graphite,acrylics and most recently in colored pencils. So far, my favorite mediums continue to be in graphite and watercolor. I have a feeling that colored pencils have started to grow on me. I doubt it if I will try my hand in oil. I still feel that I am yet to master in watercolor. It has been a learning experience and it will continue to be so for years to come.

I am taking a brief break from painting this summer. So I will resume blogging in late summer. See you then!

My mil passed away two weeks back after battling with cancer for almost 15 years.  This has forced me to stay away from my regular painting routine. I thank regular visitors for checking this blog from time to time in hope to see a new post. I will resume my painting as soon as possible.
