Treasures of You...

Treasure of You - Watercolors on Paper
Life is a treasure of feelings. It's also full of surprises with unpredictable blind turns. The only predictable thing you carry with you all-the-way-along is just you. You and your-soul are your own predictable treasures of your life.

True happiness lies no-where but within you. Find out what makes you cheering and find time for doing it. Cheer to yourself, and keep doing it joyfully and tirelessly. You'll collect "Treasures of Joy" along the way of each such run.

"Treasure the things about you that make you different and unique." - Karen Kain

Keep Painting and Keep collecting invaluable treasures of your passion...

Dancing Colors...

Bharatha Natyam - Indian Classical Dance
Dance can be colorful on the stage of performing Arts. Colors can dance in the process of an Artist's Painting on the surface. Now, Painting has grown bigger than a hobby and has become part of my life. I feel incomplete if I don't paint anything on a weekend when I am home.

After finishing Ganesh Clay Sculpture well before than expected on this Saturday, I have had whole Sunday to myself. Setting an hour aside for myself to do this Painting on my busy Sunday added a bit of relaxation. The journey of my Painting goes on...

It's the journey that matters, not the destination. Do not stop your Journey. If you stop, you miss many experiences along the way.

Keep the tradition going...

Lord Ganesh with Goddess Saraswati re-presented
- Handmade with Clay
Keeping the tradition of Making Lord Ganesha going on for 8th year in a row, I made this Ganesha for this year's upcoming Vinayaka Chavithi. This year, it's Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of Music re-presented in this handmade Clay Sculpture. Lord Ganesha is seen playing the musical instrument Veena that typically Goddess Saraswati is seen with representing Creative Arts. His Mooshika (Mouse) vaahanam (vehicle) is seen joining him playing Tabla, a pair of drums.

This is made with fine Natural Clay and all by hands from my own imagination. Started first in the year 2010, I keep this tradition going at home.

The result of Consistency is nothing but Trust. Be consistent in anything that you believe in and build your own trust, not for others, but for your-self.

"As tradition is a gift of the Spirit, its trajectory moves in the right direction, although it has not arrived at its destination." - BRIAN D. MCLAREN, A Generous Orthodoxy
