Someone's trash is someone's treasure! This piece of wood was a discarded piece in a house in Delhi . Wood work going into decorative renovation in the house was a boon for me! Whilst the owner raved about how the designs had to be crafted into the furniture, the artist in me couldn't resist but ask for discarded pieces if any! Managed to get two pieces come my way and here it is...a floral veneer for the wood. No other art supply has been flown in before .So no ordinary piece this!
I have been doing a bit of research on wood. This piece is hardboard is what I got to know. Also read that different artists have painted on wood using different ways. Am lucky that my work is impasto. THe surface is not too affected as I use such thick paste!

A sketch of myself in my new hairstyle which is fast wearing out. We all fear change but at the same time it excites us. I had quite an interesting time . Many people loved this hairstyle . Some didn't. Some behaved like I committed a crime by daring to have a temporary change. Some failed to recognise me. As for me, I enjoyed the sleek look that it brought. Little did I care about what the world thought!
I am hovering between my floral colours and skin hues. Hanging in confusion. I seem to love skin for the time. I seem to crave for contours and expressions . Shadows and light. Well, I let things take their course . You will know soon when I upload the next one.
Meanwhile I bumped into my florist the other day, who now seems to wait for me to come to his shop, as opposed to few months back when he would scoff at me ! He is almost offended at me for not having come to buy flowers and show him which of his florals I painted!
So much for change!!

The journey with plates has been quite frustrating. I am not happy with what is available in the market and I haven't been able to explore what else lies out there. A plate is too tiny a surface to unleash angst or paint with fury. It requires severity. It requires tight strokes. It requires perfection. Canvas...here I come!

Bahaar. Acrylic on plate.
I have just two acrylic tubes which are fast drying and I had to use them. I left the whole set somewhere but had brought these two to outline two works. Since I have no other colour I couldn't, mix any values and decided to do something different. I have called this Bahaar as am singing that Raaga these days . This will be my second and last acrylic on ceramic . This was more an exercise to keep in touch with painting lest I stop painting altogether!

Year another artful year ended to start another... . 2015 led me to galleries, exhibitions, selection in contests and sales. I also embarked on my ceramics journey. Will I continue in ceramics..I know not! However, I am thinking of altering my style a bit . I have started experimenting a bit but time shall say if I culminate in something or not.
Till then, I post this picture from a Delhi wall, where my sold plates compete against other artefacts! A nice feeling indeed!!
My painting which was bought by Gakerie Art Eterne was exhibited as a part of their collection in India Art Festival 2015. I also ended up displaying three of my plates through the same gallery. It was indeed a good experience to have gone to see my work being exhibited as a part of a gallery's collection!!
