Something Arty




These are the glass artworks I worked on a month and half before along with the profile picture, Spring. This was taken before Cathy's tip about setting the flash off:)

Foliage is inspired from the greenery around my place back home. Passion is abstract, done on the spur of the moment when I wanted to do 'Something arty'...the thrid too, which I've not named yet. That was done at 12 in the night!!! Inspiration drops at all odd times:)

Too good!!!

Deepa Gopal said...

Thank you girls...Hmmmmmmm...I am getting more n more energy to do such arty stuff from your POSITIVE comments!!!!

BTW, L' should ask tht to my hubby who feels there's no place he can place his glasses fearing tht I may paint tht too:)

Ya true...there's artwork everywhere that I'll have to move a painting to make place for a guest to sit...he he

And its makes me so happy tht you want Passion as ur desktop background,l'girl.

Kriti n l'girl, you both are Marvellous!!!

Aniket Thakkar said...

Wow! Fantastic!

Great artwork Deepa.

How do you get time to create all these? Are you able to finish one in a single day?

You are very inspiring to all of us!

Deepa Gopal said...

My God, Thts a very great compliment Ani...Me inspiring all of you...You all are so Great yourselves!!! Its so so much of an honor to hear that from you:)

It depends on the pic/thought, Ani. Some thoughts take more time. All these were done all of a sudden...each one of them was done in say 1 to 2 hours..separate days.Some of my paintings take one month too...recently I did a painting called 'Bride', that took nearly 4 weeks. The Very Indian Trilogy took that much time as well.

Aniket Thakkar said...

In just a couple of hrs???

You are FAST! A friend of mine she makes gel candles and stuffed toys and art items with plaster of paris.

It takes ages and tons of persuasion to make her complete one!

But she is quite good at what she does too.

Deepa Gopal said...

They are simple ones Ani thats why...some projects does consume too much time but then it'll be worth it:)

Deepa Gopal said...

Even I've tried with plaster of paris...ceramic painting. Its a hard task...takes time and its messy too...but as I said the final product would be worth the hardship. Who's this friend? Does she've a blog??

Aniket Thakkar said...

No she does not have a blog. And she's the one who was much more a friend.

Your art is wonderful. The fact that it is on glass just makes it all that more facinating. the light in the top one adds to it's excitement I think.

thanks so very much for your kind words on my are too kind. I am humbled by your kindness.

Deepa Gopal said...

Lynn,I am pleased that you like it. The light is silver lining...brush strokes:)

You are Amazing n I mean it dear Lynn.

Deepaz, all these three abstract pieces really caught my attention.
With abstract art getting more and more beautiful, there certainly a market for it.
I love the bold colours that you employed here and there are some great meaning behind the paintings!
They are talking to me:)

Deepa Gopal said...

Yoon See, you are really an uplifter!!! your comments always uplift my spirit to the extent tht you can't imagine. You describe what you feel & thts exactly what one needs:) Thanks a ton!!
