Valentines from my son

Valentine Heart Dog

There was a Valentine celebration at my kid’s elementary school. The festivities and jubilation were expected to be observed in the spirit of love for one’s own family, pets or homeland. My son with his impartial sense of comradeship for one and all created and distributed these cute little dogs so no one was left out. He’s already such a charmer, he wins hearts without being crafty!

Poetry in pattern

Create your own custom pattern on fabricI and my kids created this for their school’s Powwow. My daughter’s third grade teacher Mrs. ‘L’ is the inspiration behind this, requesting us to make one of these.  She gave us a legend that deciphers all the interesting Native American symbols and what they mean.  My son experimented with the fabric-crayons hence, emerged the true colors. My daughter embellished the poncho with lively landscape and jovial figures. I was the iron lady behind this endeavor, just kidding! continue>>

red color plateRemember, in one of my earlier posts, I had mentioned about how our home has been transformed into an art gallery, all this was actualized thru our intuitive kids, who are quite creative and artistic.

Our Living Room – A Lively Art Gallery

colorful plateHere’s something that my kids and I had created over the summer. It was fun! It’s good to indulge in colors once in a while. Our living space has been transformed into a lively art gallery. Who doesn’t like to be surrounded by bold vibrant colors, who doesn’t want to capture the colorful essence of cheerful spring and who isn’t refreshed by the sight of warm artwork especially in the midst of dull grey winter. These plates aren’t just plates they are warm and toasty reminders of how bright and beautiful life is! How much endearing a shared activity with your loved ones can be.

Celebrating

chalk drawingLike all the creatures who constitute our web of life, elephants are divine. Here they are symbolized as “Ganpati”. Just as (Om) is the aural representation of universal  consciousness , Ganesh is the visual representation of the same.  I used orange, as it is the color of sun (the source of energy). The blue lotus symbolizes enlightenment. The blue lotus is rare and hard to find, it is native to Himalayas.

Doodled Butterflies

butterflies doodleHi everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the summer. Here’s a doodle I created recently. They are not at all, as pretty as the real butterflies that you see outdoors. Purposefully patterned, warm & bright colors would make lovely accent to an otherwise indoor plain wall specially in winter when the real butterflies migrate away.

Happy Father’s Day!

Gift for him- hand knit glovesMy Dad would compliment me everytime I drew these kind of phones. He liked the way I drew such phones with effortless ease & dexterity. He liked the color green. Now he’s no more with us but, he is still around us in another form, I’m sure. I’m so blessed and thankful to have had a father like him. His dedication and love for all mankind made him special. I’m very proud of how he lived his life. For me he is an example of how to be joyous and child-like forever! continue Read more….
