Ride into spring!

And Spring arose on the garden fair
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere,
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of wintry rest...

No winter lasts forever and no Spring skips a chance.Spring actually shows what God can do with an otherwise drab and dirty world.The feel of fresh ,fragrant, cool breeze next to my skin each morning ,the birds cooing in floral chroma,the green grass kissed passionately by dew are reasons just enough to 'spring' me up!
Spring teaches us that in times of scarcity and challenge ,we must keep a strong ...a very strong faith in the miracle of abundance.
So rejoice for Spring is here!!

Beauty and pride...

A peacock with its vibrant plumage...a perfect harmony of blue and green...reminds us of celebration of life!
The feather of this majestic bird  in all ages has been considered as a sign of beauty and knowledge; beauty because it is so exquisitely beautiful, knowledge because it is in the form of an eye.In Hinduism, the peacock is associated with Saraswati, a deity representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and knowledge.

This royal bird is much more than an inspiration and has long provided a decorative motif for art and interiors!

Musical bliss

"If music be the food of love play on".

Music relaxes,heals,tranqulises and boosts you up.
It helps you express what can be inexpressible otherwise.

Getting inspired ? I was... when I made this art in mixed media. The colours express my state of mind... all bright and cheerful. Can you locate a broken record player in this art? Yeah I reused it to signify my love for music!

Oh! without music life would be such a mistake!

The minute you think of giving up think of the reason why you held on for so long!
Yes ...don't give up on your dreams! Hold your dream close to your heart , keep your chin high , face the challenge , have faith in God , and act!

Just one life we have so make it count :)

She her heart !

Its a good day to have a good day just  wear your best smile and carry on...

Connected with the divine source she looks so at peace and happy.Cleansed of all negative thoughts she beams with true happiness.
Her unruffled calm face exhibits her strength within.

She this abundant joy !
She her heart !

Butterflies always give me a reason to smile...their ever bright colours are one reason of course but then they float softly through the winds touching the world in their own beautiful way and leaving a mark on them...

...they always inspire me to live and touch...

Coffee art

Hi everyone!

This is one of my experiments with coffee on paper. Yeah,I painted this face with coffee and then doodled a few patterns with ink to add the details.

Her dreamy eyes say a lot... don't they!

Welcome to Beneath my
I love all that relates to art and colour.

I am very fond of experimenting ,mixing and matching and using anything even trash to create what can be called a piece of art.I am most intrigued by faces and tend to put them in my work.

I simply adore pretty patterns. I use ink on paper to draw and sketch these lovely looking swirls and curls which leave me with a feeling that is completely out of this world.It is like meditating which I can do for hours relentlessly.
Nothing can match the joy and contentment on my face when I am in the process of creating or doing up my house.
I am awestruck by the colours in the sky when I watch sunrise from my window,smiling faces of my sons and my husband are just enough to give my day a true start and cooking a colourful and deliciously beautiful meal rejuvenates me.I love to laugh with my family.
The smell from a bakery,a whiff of vanilla,beaten coffee,my mom's kadhi chawal,sondhi mahak..the earthy smell after the first rain,a long.. very long drive in the rain are some of my favourites and the list is really endless.
I believe in always being a first rate version of myself instead of second rate version of somebody else.
It is this passion for art and colours which motivated me to start this blog.This also is going to be a place for all those who love life with all its various colours and with different artistic strokes it showcases every moment.Here you are going to give yourself a  break and enjoy.
This I am sure is going to be a place where I can be ME..
