Women of the Desert

Sometimes one is at a loss to begin...from where should I begin! I have been unable to religiously visit my friends' blogs as I have been busy...with a show starting tomorrow, a commission work that I have to complete before I leave for Dubai in a couple of days and so many other things! I am all excited about tomorrow's show - Women of the Desert, which is happening at DIAC - Gallery 76, Dubai. I am going to miss the opening though. It is organized by the lovely Zareen Khan and team of Woman2Woman Events. I am exhibiting two of my works there. It  is something like a vision that I have transferred into canvas adding soul and spirit to it; they have woven a story of their own. It also has a mystical rhythm with symbolism that explores the spacelessness and the timelessness.

Would you like to know about the participating artists??? Just drop by here.


The illustrations below are from my last year's show which was titled 'It's All Square' and they are all square and this is just a part of the illustrations. It was held at thejamjar gallery in Dubai. You can read about it here and here.




Linking it to Eva and Kristin's PPF :)

When you work on a concept do you consciously move through it or it changes during it's course...kind of intuitive. Do you get visions? Do you transfer them to canvas too? Do you jot down those details or sketch? Would love you to share and get to know your views on it :)

Good luck with your exhibition. My work always seems to change when I am working on it, and is never quite as I had envisaged it. Hugs, Valerie

Lovely work...enjoy the exhibit!!
Mine is very intuitive and usually comes through either the paint or through the lines on the page when I am doing some digital. Other times I see something that sparks me wanting to try to paint my version...however it evolves how it chooses!! Have fun showing your work!!

Hugs Giggles
