Let the time find you...

Girl and Jewelry - Watercolors on Paper

How do you find time? is a very common question I face from all who see my Art works.

I am not a professional Artist. I am only passionate...still hesitate a lot to use the word Artist as I am only a hobbyist. I am no different than (m)any. I do have full-time professional work and double-full-time family work. Still, every weekend I try my best to spend sometime with my Arts. Like all, I also don't find time for it. But I can say, I just tuned my life for it so that I don't need to find time for it, Time finds me instead.

Life can only become busy, year after year. It never slows down anyway. That is how we built life. If we don't let the Time find us, we never find Time either. All you have to do is: Let the time find you!

In this modern age, the phrase, I don't have time means, It's not my priority. Simply Make 30 hours out of 24 hours and then you will definitely have time for yourself ;)

This is a simple watercolor painting, outlined gently with ink & pen and colored with brush.
Happy Painting!

Don't get lost...

Indian Classical Dance - A classic Mudra (Gesture)
This is a quick watercolor painting done with just one color: black, not the actual black but a substitute for black called Neutral Tint that many Watercolor Artists use. When I don't know what painting to start, but wanted to do something, my first choice always is: Indian Classical Dance.

A weekend day comes and goes faster than a weekday. Weekend gives an opportunity to spend time with ones own soul. Be with it for sometime by doing something you have passion for. Simply, don't get lost in hectic life!

"The purpose of Art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." - Pablo Picasso

My Dad from my (He)Art...

My Dad from my (He)Art
Watercolors on Paper

The only question God can never answer for me: Why did you take my Dad from us that early?

You could only take my Dad from my life but not from my Heart. Just those couple of years that you had let me observe my Dad closely in my childhood are enough for me to follow him and carry with me, some of his very fine-skills that the world couldn't see. As long as I live, he lives with me in my Heart and in my Art.

Remembering my Dad, who is the first person I admire most in my life, ever and forever!
Happy Father's Day!

Make your own kingdom...

Keep doing what you enjoy most and make your own Kingdom of Bliss...after all life is once and is short!

Not what I have, but what I do, is my kingdom.
