It's over a month since I posted and I really can't pinpoint on one thing...I am really sorry guys for not having posted for that long! But seriously, I needed a break not from blogging as such but to help me stabilize on certain things. I was emotionally amock particularly with the floods in my region and the aftermath of it all. Our place and people are slowly recovering. We were in a safe area but there are loads of people who have suffered disastrously. We tried helping them out a bit by buying them the essentials like food and stuff, and dresses and also a bit through our art.
I seriously couldn't touch my paint and brush for almost a month other than the two flood relief ones, though I did sketch and splash colours casually to relax in between.
Created these two paintings as part of raising funds for Flood Relief. The event was hosted and organized by Kalakar Keralam and Kerala Lalithakala Akademi in Durbar Hall Art Gallery premises and displayed in the Gallery. Around 500 artists from all over the State participated and collected around 7 Lakh rupees by the end of the fourth day of the 5-day event.
My two paintings - The Lily pads in the first one is referred from Pearfluer and the girl in the boat (really tiny) is referred from Pinterest. Jellyfish are also referred from a photo on Pinterest.

Both the works sold and the money went to the Chief Minister's Flood Relief Fund
Paul, studying in Grade 4 - my young buyer, youngest so far!
Loved the zest in his sparkling eyes to get it! So extravagantly satisfying!
Just splashing some acrylic inks - fluid colours on postcards...to see where the colours travel...
Can you spot the hint of gold there?
'White Flowers in Glass Bottle'
I think I saw this picture in one of my Facebook friend's wall.
Wanted to try the glass badly,
was trying glass for the first time and this was before the flood.
Something pleasant to end with.
How have you all been doing?
