Relearn to unlearn.

It’s a process of learning,
never ending,
satisfying.
And if you feel stuck once in a while
pause to relearn
so as to unlearn
what was futile.
Close you eyes only for a moment,
take a deep breath
and restore your pretty head.
It’s okay to feel not in control
and struggling in a mess,
you aren’t alone,
life is a zest.
Take your steps
wisely or not,
learn what life will teach you
on those blank dots,
fill in more memories,
more of gratitude,
more of you.
Darling ,
slowly but surely,
day by glorious day,
you find more of you,
love that person
each day you are growing to be.
It doesn’t stop,
you dont have to otherwise see,
nurture your soul,
cleanse you whole.
You are infinite ,
an important scratch
in the universe.
You are the diamond in that uncut coal.

Gentle voice of mine.

Well sometimes we are faced with both the voice, one that snaps at any progress and makes us believe it’s still less,
and one that pushes us with a gentle voice forward and reminds us each tiny lil step counts.
While you’ll need the harsher one to give you a taste of reality and be your own fair judge, and mentally make plans on how to approach the situation, with worst case scenario and best possible strategies .
There will also be that voice that will tell you to calm down and breathe and take one day at a time. And this is the voice that you need to prioritize.

Often with the lifestyle we are so engaged in, this voice is like a tiny freckle in the space around us, most often it’s the “not good enough” blowing away the hidden sips of joys that breeze through your way.
Take time to understand and to listen to both of them, and then pay more attention to the one that is more gentle on you.
Because through the narrow gentlest stream gushes the most pure, ferocious and magnificent river.

All that snapping and negative motivation will sometimes be alil too harsh on those already wearing out nerves, learn the art of mindfulness. That life is right where you are, breathe it. Don’t chase it, because it’s not something you chase , it’s something you absorb, something you cherish , something you observe and feel and live.

Stay blest.

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.

When frustration and anger turns into something productive… It’s been long since we had a date… DEAR COLOURS , even though it was alil rusty, we made it .

I guess we need more time together….

Don’t you think ?
Oh right, next time I won’t come to you all grumpy.
Well even if I do……. I’m sure you’ll help me forget. You always do.
Since it was never a break up, just a break…. we do have a forever thing going right?
Atleast some relationships dont create rough patches in time.
Your’s always,
