Process of creation.

Peeekaaboooo peonies ..😘😘😘..

Honestly I wasn’t really sure I could paint them okayishly… buh I think they turned out pretty cute after the layering… Trust me it looks easy. It’s so not. Unless you’re a floral art expert.
I’m not. That’s what managing to pull off a risk looks like.
Often in Art we take risks. Because it’s fascinating and curiously thrilling to try new things, try them till we learn them thoroughly and then move onto new other things. Because once we are comfortable with a certain skill, techniques it kinda becomes a tad bit boring to continue to do the same over and over, unless we are people who like that. But for people like me, the more we learn, the more we challenge ourselves, the more eager we are to find what else we are capable of doing, it’s fun and stressful, but truly more fun than stressful.

Art invites you to take a plunge into an unknown wild imagination and then it won’t guide you, but maddeningly pull you into it’s abyss, until you deliberately find a song into the depths of something so infinite and magical.

There’s probably nothing more enchanting and powerful than knowing that you are capable of creating something.
Whether a Chef, a baker, an artist, a potter … a mother.

You are creators of magical infinity contained in your output .

What is even more fascinating is the process of creation.
I think the one who could explain magic is probably an expecting mother, ask her how she feels to be a home to a lil human growing in her.

Ask a Chef how it feels to put different condiments, spices, ingredients together and toss it into a scrumptious ecstasy.

Ask a potter how they mould their clay, and work with the finer details.

Ask a carpenter how he carves onto wood and create something that lasts for generations to use.

Ask an artist how meditative the process of living amidst a zillion colours in different mediums, over variety of structures, plains and papers feels like ?

An ARTIST can be a creator of art or a performer , so ask a performer how it feels to make a fictional character realistic.

A sculptor, a builder, an architect, a painter, an inventor..etc. Ask them about the process of creation. How truly mind boggling it is .

No! I’m not a pro, yet. Neither am I comparing my work with other artists. Why ? Because no two artists are the same.
Just like each one of us, are unique, so is every creation. Every creator puts a distinct part of themself into their art. So if you are comparing my middle to someone else’s mastered art, then don’t. We belong to the same family, the artists, but we each are different, we learn from each other, but we create our own. And it always has a part of us in it.

Art can never be ruined.

Art can never be ruined.

If anything it can be redone and renewed. 

A canvas once completed can totally be re- made into a new one. 

Somewhere the old will be the underlying meaning to define the new.
You can always layer up your art, till your heart feels content.
Even in the ruins there’s so much art.

Only a creative heart will see the endless possibilities 

where someone might see none whatsoever.
Abstract art is an art of emotions taking charge, 

letting you unwind and let your soul design something 

unseen , unthinkable and alluring.
Fascinating as much as art is, it has no boundaries.

Limitless as one can state, art has no horizon .

If you want to, you can create something /anything  from nothing.
Sometimes even our minds stop functioning,

but our hands wont. 

It’s like they have a mind of their own.
They will toss and turn,

hustle and burn,

and scrape out the damage done,

cut the beauty, rearrange and still be calm.
Dear artist,

the world will challenge you, your work.

Even the ruins they see will make you wonder 

is it really worthless?
No! It ain’t. You have infinite power to redeem and remake and redesign and recreate what looks dull and lifeless into something lively and thriving.
And yet you can choose to not alter the basic elements of what one may call ruin, because you can see the beauty that a normal eye will never be able to fathom.
It is ok. To love every bit of your journey. Because in a life like yours, nothing is a ruin, ever. Not even you and most definitely not your work.
Much love,

An awakening artist.

Life will throw a thousand tantrums and some you will endure, some you will fight, some you will accept. That on a journey of self discovery one should never give up , no matter how many odds we face, we have it in us to face all demons and find ourselves and be what we are meant to be. Disappointments will grace us but if we focus on what goal we have set, we will find our way to achieve it, eventually. 

So right from the ruins we can grow our garden of infinite possibilities, harness goodness and positivity, motivate the one’s that need a push, and restore what is craving a healing touch.

(Kind of getting my vibes from Moana -a disney movie here. Do watch it. It’s a beautiful story. I do have a review written on it. )

Art will find you.

Reminders…. 🍁🍁 ..

● It’s okay to sometimes have a hard time choosing your colours.

● It’s okay to try using new color schemes, learn new techniques and mess up a tad bit.

● It’s okay to feel anxious and worried after a “no mood, nothing good” vibe.

● It’s okay to find it difficult to sometimes start, improvise and thrive . 

● It’s okay to look around, feel overwhelmed with the level of creativity and intensity your fellow artists work with. 

● It’s okay, to sometimes just stand there, hold your palette and be mesmerized with the hues at hand, that confuse you with what to start and how to end. 

● It’s okay. It is completely okay.

Smile. When the going gets tough , you can always start with your comfort colour. 

Mine is yellow.
What about you ?

Tiny details – more life.

Doesn’t this look like a card ?

Even though the edges of an unused canvas have the remains of my last paintings, 

I can’t stop staring at these tiny bits,

that make me sigh in contentment.


When I see them ,

even the tiniest drop of colour,

inspires me,

ignites my spirit,

sets ablaze my being,

it’s like sometimes 

I just can’t control,

this maddening 

urge to paint something, 

anything, everything.


If nature had no colour, 

would it still refuel you and me ?


if my edges won’t have the remains,

would I still fall in love with my work ?


if you have no scars,

would you still have a story 

worth feeling proud about?


if you stack away the remains,

would you still manage to live 

without doubts ? .

Sometimes

things, set us free,

things that go unnoticed,

things that we fail to observe,

those tiny simple things 

that when chosen

make the most perfect choices,

those tiny details 

that make a difference.

Live… acknowledge.. the tiny details.. stay happy… be at peace..

Dear Future Husband #15

 Honey….

Yesterday was a rough day.

I wonder how was yours.

Yesterday I had not many words to fill a blank page, was way too drained and sad . And I wanted something nice to say.

I did hope this #illustration of us that was done yesterday, speaks to you someday.

Hahah! Please don’t mind me looking elsewhere & not at youπŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š…..

I love dancing, mostly ball room, and usually my bro is my perfect partner, but the times he’s not around, I miss dancing, so I avoid parties, maybe one of those possible places fate could help us meet. 

But since I’m gonna be sticking to my chair even when there’s crazy music, I don’t turn up to such parties.

Apart from dancing, my well wisher pointed out that it would be so wonderful to actually meet you someday and realize that you have indeed read all of my letters all along. 

But that’s just wishful thinking or would that be a wonderful possibility?

I know I will meet you love, even if this wait will be months or years, but when we are destined by the Almighty we shall meet.

It scares me you know, this dating thing, because I don’t want to invest in someone who’s not you. 

Because there’s alot at stake. Emotions, feelings, time, understanding, patience, compromise, sacrifices, prayers….. and so on.

I want to invest all that in you. Someday, when we click, and if you ask for my heart, I will gladly give it to you, because by then , I’ll know, you’ll be the key to help me rebuild and become even more of a woman who belongs to herself first.

The pressures of the society or even family, at times , makes me feel weird, will I be forced to choose ? And if I do, will that be you ?

How will I ever know , love ? There are so many doubts, so many fears.

I’ve been raised by such amazing parents who have never once fallen out of love, their love is the very strength that binds our family together.

Will our love be the ship on which we shall proudly sail towards eternities ?

They say the soul knows who it wants ? And since you shall be my soulmate someday, will your soul recognize mine ?

I wonder love. I only can wonder.

I leave my worries about you in the hands of our match maker.

For he knows, who’s heart I can cherish and who can treasure mine.

I hope and pray dearly beloved, that you are having the most amazing time of your life. May you think of me, as I think of you. 

Haven’t met, yet to meet. Isn’t that a beautiful mysterious  fact of our lives ?

I will wait, my love. I don’t urge you or God to let you come soon. I pray that when you turn up, I am ready to accept you and welcome you, from that day on for forever thereafter.

Stay blest. Stay safe for me. 

For He knows our time will be in His time.

Until next letter,

And until God plans our eternity,

Your favorite dancing partner to be,

Your love.

Lil drops of paint.

Do you know 

what a few drops of paint could do ?

It could paint your canvas anew!

Toss it over,

and move your hands,

add a few designs, textures and don’t plan,

let it flow, 

your thoughts finding paths

on blank pages and canvas,

Fall in love ,

with every sprinkle,

every dip,

every hue and shade,

as you create,

let yourself be filled with wonder,

there’s no imperfection,

there’s no blunder,

if you let yourself not hesitate but wander, 

in this lil space you created,

a place to be ,

in a moment so isolated ,

very much real,

very much true,

as you understand 

alil more deeply 

the joy of the greatest creator

who made you.

I’m an ocean.

Feels good… to do this..

______________ .

.  I’m an ocean,

sometimes calm,

sometimes raving,

I’m water,

that is living,

depths of me are hidden and discreet,

not all can reach,

not all can seek,

I’m not blue,

I’m not white,

I’m a colour 

that you decide,

I can calm you,

give you peace,

or snatch away your lil ease,

I’m no bubble 

for you to burst,

I’m no mirror 

for you to adjust,

I’m an ocean,

with hidden treasures,

some sunk ships,

alil wrecks,

alil leaks,

alot more life in my depths,

mysterious and always luring.
