Happiness is a state of mind...

Radha Krishna - A sketch with Ink and watercolors

With an intention to come back to Oil Painting, I chose "Dancing Krishna" as a theme for a series of Paintings. I did a painting of Lord Krishna about two years ago which was my second Oil Painting. It's just a coincidence that Krishna was dancing in that Painting too, but he was dancing alone.

This is a quick sketch of exploration and experimentation on Paper with the composition. Sketching is a way to experiment with the composition for a Painting.

I am happy with the outcome and now it will go onto the canvas to become my third Oil Painting.

I always sign on right-bottom-side of the Painting. This is probably the only Painting I signed on the "Left-side" instead. Yes, it left the right side!

"Happiness is a state of mind and has
nothing to do with the external world."
- Lord Krishna

Keep Painting and Keep your soul Happy ;)

No words to express my joy...

A sketch with Ink Pen and Watercolors
After a good weekend of an Art exhibition, and having so much of Art energy flowing inside my heart, what should I do when I come home and nobody is there to share my joy? I pick up my brush and just Paint.

In joy, do more Painting...that's the way to celebrate with Art.
Keep Painting and keep the inner energy flowing, don't let it dry or die!

"If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint" - Edward Hopper, painter (1882 - 1967)

Unless you fall in Love...

Watercolors on Paper
Hobby is not something that you can do just for the sake of doing it. You need to really fall in Love before you develop a passion for it. Once developed as a hobby, it doesn't go away, only stays with you forever. Anything that stays with you forever is the only one that you truly are in Love with. Hobby is one such thing in life.

Keep doing, keep creating and keep inspiring yourself!
Happy Painting ;)

The Joy of doing...

Cute Baby Boy - Watercolors on Paper
The Joy of doing anything that you love lies in just doing it. You do not know how you can do it until you make a sincere attempt.

"The soul's joy lies in doing".

Just keep doing and keep going. Be your own viewer, reviewer, critic, mentor, complementary, competitor and judge. After all nobody can judge you better than yourself!

Happy Painting!
