I can’t get the image out of my head!

This poem is based on three extremely famous paintings by Masters. Easy guess, I believe...would you like to name those famous paintings and the artists??? :)

I can’t get the image out of my head!
As I lay under the blessed night sky
Watching the multitude of twinkling stars
Beaming on the soft rippling waters,
(feeling uncertain to look above or the one below)
Breeze rocking the docked boats
I lay there smiling
At the eternal gods
Thanking for the wonders that
Surround us!
The blue enveloping,
Whites and yellows transmuting,
I lay there for a whole new world
To unravel!
Inspired by the romance
In the air
The couple partook in a kiss
Magically the mantle emerged
With two passionate golden figures,
Ornate in their garb
Oblivious to the world
Immersed in love!
While that heaven lasted;
Seconds may be…
A shrill shriek gorged
Amid the varying warm and dark hues
Red and more red engulfing
The echoing beat of the heat!
I lay still…
Trying hard to manoeuvre
To lay still!
While the images encircled me
From far above and deep within!
I can’t get the image out of my head!

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.

Blogadda has asked for a story that begins with "I can’t get the image out of my head" but this is what came to my just thought of jotting it down...whether it is valid or not am unsure, yet I am linking it! This is the first time I am writing for WOW though. :)

Exhibitions and More Art...

Only when one perceives more art will one get to know more about it! That stands true for any work or activity. Along with practice one needs to be constantly, at least frequently be in touch with what we are associated with. Since the time I have been in Kochi, I have had the pleasure of attending a lot of exhibitions and thereby meeting other artists'. It's truly a great vibe that's at disposal! A lot of inspiration!

This week I attended 2 exhibitions at Durbar Hall - 

Earthworms by Tenzing Joseph, Principal at Raja Ravi Varma College of Fine Arts, Alappuzha.
(Currently running until 9 Aug)
It was the inauguration day I had been there; on 3 Aug.


Still, Though The One I Sing... (Show ended on 6 Aug)

by Five artists -Antony Joseph, Ashil Antony, Ebey Edassery, Jiji George and Rajasekar.

Personally, I think, each exhibition for me is an eye opener. I get to see a whole world, so different and unique from one another. where each artist exists! A world so personal to them, yet displayed to the public for them to make an attempt to understand that parallel  world, that existence, their insight! 

A few pictures from both the shows beginning with Earthworms...






and Still, Though The One I Sing...







Still,TTOIS- HuesnShades

And finally something that I had been engaged in...casing up two-three canvases at a time...I am splashing colours in one and the other...enjoying it all the while. The best thing about working like that is you are totally immersed in one and/or the other so much so that you don't realize the time passing by! You also get more than one canvas ready around the same time too! I finished two and one is near completion.


When the light fades
I see you!
I carry you in my heart,
My senses,
Overpowering me…
You flow in and out
Letting me sway
In your arms
The white drenching me,
Wrapping me up!

This is the work in progress...

And the last one I am saving it up for next time. :)

On how many canvas do you work at a time???

Linking it to PPF...awesome art there!
