A painting can change the mood...

Certain days have a gloomy start; we don't know what to do, but we feel like doing something close to our heart. Yesterday, on such a day, I opened my college-days collection of paper cuttings. Most of those were mainly appealing to me and a source of inspiration for me to start a drawing or painting during my college-days. A small black and white picture which I believe I did a pen sketch for our college magazine made me to start this painting. Guess what, rest of my day took me out from this world for few hours.

I tried to get that very pleasant face into my painting. At the end, I felt like I should have started even on a bigger size paper. I gave my best to turn my gloomy day into a bright one.

Art is always inspiring, refreshing and can change bad mood into good mood.

Happy Painting ;)
