I have always wondered why they call it the family tree; it comes from the fact that every leaf on this tree forms the shade when the sun of circumstances blazes over you. It is not easy to find a family who are there for you when you need them the most. Every branch on this tree is like the helping hand. Every root is the bond you have with them and which runs deep into the sweet memories you have shared. Love and Respect for all the beautiful people that surround me.
The time in our calendar where we can reset our energies to a more positive level and cut the negativity. It's amazing how faith and visualisation of the good culminates into something good eventually. It's important one must first be able to visualise the happy event in the present for it to transcend it in the future. Wishing everybody a Happy Dussehra, NEW BEGINNINGS
Love the idea that the power centers within our body have defined colours. Who can deny the fact that colours play an important part in our life. Here is my iterpretation of the 'Chakra' colours. Painting this vision on a Mini canvas made the experience personal. The symmetry of the square canvas helped balancing the colour combination. The energised format of the circle made it more dynamic.

A recent visit to Hawaii brought out the reflections on the differents colours of the sea. We say the water is blue but the pictures tell a different story, the sea can be green, grey, yellow, light blue.
The sea is the same everywhere but it's amazing how it creates a different look in every place. The sense of clam that nature throws at you can be unbeatable.
When embarking on any big project it is important to take the buyer's approval on the base level concept. This is done by taking the brief and creating a miniature which will have the size, the colour and the look. Once this is presented to the Client. The journey towards creating the big project becomes more open and the acceptance levels increase at both ends. The fun of creating a concept is that you can mix and match different colours and different angles of the concept. The outcome is safe, amazing and full of happiness. Afterall Client is GOD.
The joy of making a customised painting is one of discovering the boundaries of the other person's imagination. Though art is fluid but, it is a process. It has steps which lead to the final concept. You talk to the Client as if they are telling you a story. This can only happen if they trust you and respect you as a person. If it is purely a commercial transaction then it is bound to fail. It requires the love and care that a new born requires. When the story is told, it is absorbed, it is nurished and then it blossoms on the Canvas. The outcome is left to the spirit and the soul, the bliss of looking at the joy of the beholder is the ultimate prize for the artist.
