"Beauty surrounds us" - exactly what I feel these days! Showers have started in my hometown; am enjoying it unlike the past years when going out during the hols used to turn terrible coz of the damp cluttered and pooled roads. But this year the page has turned anew; I am in no hurry nor do I have to finish my visits or anything else for that matter apart from shopping for day to day stuff which can even be postponed (at times!!!) the beauty of watching rain through the glassed windows is something I enjoy and have visualized a lot when in Dubai. It has a misty, vague and yet a soothing feel about it. Even Krishna has started enjoying the rains...yester' she went walking in the rain with an umbrella (she had congestion) to feel the drizzle and the coolness :)
The morning song, the blue sky, the cotton clouds, the bees and birds, the flowers and trees...I can see beauty in each and everything here. I think even the paper boy with the rhythmic ringing of his cycle bell, the walking aunties with intermittent laughter, the splitter-splatter when a vehicle passes, the dangling coconuts and their intermittent fall ( which I am really scared of:)) and all nature's music is so soothing to my ears...
Looking through the rainy glass...tried an effect :)
The cargo arrived 3 days back with our dresses, books, my paintings and the art materials. As I am unpacking I am stumbling upon my old works which I hadn't posted before and I feel a joy, a high to see and feel it and to think of the time I created it.
This is from my Jamini Series which I couldn't complete and I deeply regret it!!! Albeit I still have time and I NEED to complete it soon :)
And now to Summer of Color's Artist Choice...
These are patterns paper I created just for fun....not thinking, not planning....just letting it be, it took shape on it's own... :)
The color combo for this week was citron green and turquoise.
That will suffice for the day!
Have A Great Weekend My Lovely Friends From Around The World...

Beautiful post and artwork!

Hi, Deepa :). I enjoyed reading your post today, I can almost feel & smell the fresh air from the rain. We've got rainstorms & sunny days here too and I'm grateful for all of these bounty :). Your digital art for SOC is lovely :).

Beautiful! Looking through past work can be truly inspirational, as is playing with different media and techniques. Blessings!
Jamini is tops Deepa!
I'm a big fan of the movie Cleopatra, so any Egyptian-looking art always catches my eye! Love "the boat ride"! (Actually, the movie just turned 50, this month, since it's premier in 1963).. But ANYWAYS, love your work done in turquoise and lime green too! What a fun combination!.. Have a great weekend! ~tina
Hi Deepa, In a way we are journeying with you from Dubai to Palakkad! Great to hear it's raining there and I got the freshness of monsoon from the lotus! Jamini series look fab even as it is! Great work for SOC!
I love the flowers through the rain. The boat ride watercolor is also great, the detail is wonderful!
Beautiful post. It's a great passage in life when we begin to see the beauty in everything -- the miracle of rain, the beauty of things that we fear or inconvenience us -- we begin to see that it's all part of a bigger picture. Love the paintings and you boat ride. Nice work with the citron and turquoise.
wonderful is the only word for the fabulous work of yours !
Beautiful work...ah to be not in a rush...ine day...lol....x
So beautiful, pictures and words! :)
I love that it just happened! Those are some of my favorite times in the studio! Happy PPF!

Love the movement in the painting of the flowers. And your older painting looks wonderful, all those bright happy colours ...
