...Stranger than Fiction

“It’s not everyday that the world arranges itself into fiction."

I just heard it from a Prologue to the movie 'Humans of Someone'...and that is something extraordinarily beautiful!

I totally agree with the saying that Truth is stranger than Fiction...
I have always found that to be true!!!

So many characters, so many people...that many tales...often a bewilderment to our 'confined' imagination! One could end up feeling awestruck! Sometimes heard, sometimes unheard; untold tales... all wrapped up within (for your eyes and ears only! - for your senses alone!)...there's so much beauty to it and at times unflinching pain to journey along.

Our art sometimes takes such a path too...it sometimes takes an unruly path...decides to bewilder our senses...shock us into existence, sometimes into the dark and deep alley where our secrets are buried even without our own knowledge and then BANG...they spring at us! (like those prey-waiting cunning creatures!)...they gaily display their pride possessions so gorgeously; often disoriented in a careful-careless way...one then sees the panoramic view of what was once buried deep inside which is now open to the whole wide world to 'See' and interpret!

I have been busy doing just that...Finally I received confirmation letter from the Akademi for our group show which is to happen next month in Durbar Hall. I am in labour and have been labouring not without excitement and agony at the same time! Finally my children will be there for everyone to see and 'interpret'...But then it's as they say I have done my part, I will leave it to the world and then rest! I am thankful for I am evolving with each new painting and each new day...learning umpteen things from the Master Craftsman...called Life (and God) in one!

Right now I can't post pictures of those paintings here...


But I am leaving you with a few paintings I did from Wyanne's online class...She's a GEM!!!


AbstractTrees-HuesnShades


AbstractFlowers-HuesnShades

Create a whole new world
Inhabit in it!
Roam around, 
Search for appeasing souls
Awe the self...
Awe the world...
Follow your heart
Form a Tribe!
Create, create again...
A Paradise...
Washed ashore by the hand Divine
For we are just the mediums
Through which Divinity flows!

Agree???


If you would like to watch the Prologue to the 'Humans of Someone'...watch here.


One of my seniors from school, a famed and gorgeous danseuse - Methil Devika, has breathed life into a character in the movie...so, eagerly waiting for the movie itself.



Linking the post to the gorgeous tribe, PPF...

Both pieces are so different but each has depth and a story. I am drawn into the second piece. Very nicely done.

Thanks to your encouragement.. I did it! Finally posted. Love the thoughts you share here...about letting our art go... for others' interpretation, and acknowledging that as artists (as humans!) we can simultaneously be in a state of agony and excitement. Hope the show is going well!
