Valentine Wish and Snail mails


First of all, A huge Valentines Day wishes to all my dear readers and blogger friends.Hope you had a great day!

 Valentine Couple; Warli style


Secondly, I had my first sale for the year. 'Looking Forward' is on it's way to USA to Hrissi Haldezos; she found it in my blog and expressed her wish to buy it. And there it goes! Here's a sneak peak of the picture.The detailed post can be read in the link above. It's painted on wood with acrylics. The postcard is created in Chikan kari pattern; one of the most famous textile decoration styles. It's a traditional art of embroidery specific to Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. It is believed to be introduced by Noor Jahan, Mughal Emperor Jehangir's wife. The postcard (Daler and Rowney watercolor paper) is my gift to Hrissi.



 Looking Forward with a painted postcard (a surprise gift!)
