Art isn’t paint; It’s LOVE..❤❤

This was my last painting of last year..😜  I did this painting for my friend, there are three more in this series which I’m still working on. Painting this piece has boosted my confidence level one bar high.

“Pacha”

It’s a classical art form of Kerala (a state in India), known as Kathakali. The term ‘Katha’ means ‘a story or a conversation, or traditional tale’ and ‘Kali’ means ‘performance’. It is a story play, it has colourful makeup, costumes and head gears also.

Kathakali got it’s attention because of the magnificent colours used for makeup. These make-ups are known as Vesham, It defines the characters played. There are five different types of veshams. The one which I have done is named as “Pacha (Green)”. It’s called “pacha”  because of the colour used for make-up.The pacha vesham with its green colour is used to represent Satvik (pious) , noble male characters.

The next painting in this series which I’m working on is called ‘Minnukku’. In minnukku, the make-up is with yellow colour which is used to portray women and pious characters. But you have to wait a little for the ‘Minnukku’ painting. Because I have just started it.

I hope you all will love this painting as much as I do.

This is my second embroidery. I found this picture on internet and I thought of giving it a try, it didn’t came exactly as the internet one, but still I think it looks good. And as I always says I love Colours, I love experimenting with them. I have used different colours in this. I hope you all will love it as much as I do.

If you think you can do it, definitely give it a try. Because that might be the thing you could do the best. 

Anything is possible. It’s just that you should have a strong wish to do it. I’m very much new to embroidery. I really don’t know about stitches and all, but I had that urge of doing it. Initially it could be difficult process, but it’s not. Once you learn the technique you really can do it. As I said earlier, the only thing that you need is urge of learning anything which you wanna learn or wanna do.

And I’m ending my today’s post with beautiful lines by Albert Einstein.

 True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.

Live, Love, Laugh!

To Live your dreams, Love you dreams…❤

It’s a beautiful starry night. This is the time we think about beautiful things, beautiful memories, sometimes bad ones too. Today I feel sharing something new which I have started fresh this year. feel like to write something today. My new hobby hand embroidery. Trying something new this time was one of my resolution this time. And I did tried one thing which I never have done.

I don’t know how many of you have read my second last post, where I have mentioned about new beginning. In that post I told that, ill be trying my hands on hand embroidery. Here is a glimpse of that hand embroidery. I know, It’s not even close to perfection, but it has that spark of love and dedication which I have put on it while doing.

It felt little hard, because I’m new to it. I don’t know what kind of stitching I have to do, how many different stitches are there. But it’s not impossible to learn. Learning is something which never ends.

Seriously telling you all, anything is possible if you really have desire for it or really wanna do it. I never thought I’ll do it. But it was kind of a dream for me, to prove myself that I really can do it. To imprint on myself  that I’m capable of doing something which is entirely new to me.

There is nothing wrong in trying something which seems hard, something which you feel impossible and can never do it. Try it. There is nothing wrong in failing in that, but never stop trying. I might have failed in it, even if it happens I will never give up. I would try it again and again and again. And I’m sure one fine day definitely I’ll achieve it.

That’s what life is all about.

Listen to this beautiful lines from Paulo Coelho.

As Paulo Coelho said — ‘when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.’

Live, Love, Laugh…❤

New year wishes

A new year offers you a new Beginning. Make a beautiful beginning.  May all your dreams come true.

A very happy new year to you all.. Stay healthy, stay happy….❤❤

New year,New beginning..😍

And it’s the end of this year.

I’ve heard every body saying  “New year, new hopes” but for me it’s a new beginning. A new year is an excuse to make a new start. It’s very much true..😉 New year should be a new start to do something or the time to restart something which you have left behind. 

There might be things which you wanna forgot. Don’t hold on to it. Just move on. Leave your anger, frustration, sorrow, failures behind and move on in your life. But learn from it. 

Don’t let the past blackmail your present to ruin a beautiful future“.

I do take new year resolutions.. but always fail to complete it..🙄 but this time I want to do it differently. This time I wanna do something which I failed to do earlier. 

❤Hand embroidery ❤ I thought of trying it out of inspiration.

We meet so many people in our life. Some people inspire us. Some people teach us. Few will support us. I’ve met one such person in my life. My friend not just a friend my mentor, my advisor, my soul sister, everything. She has inspired me, taught me  to speak up, supported me throughout. 

She does hand embroidery soo beautifully. I’ve seen her giving her 100% doing that. She has inspired me soo much, that I couldn’t stop myself from trying it again. 

❤❤Love you praba…❤❤ You are really awesome.

Today I’m sharing an oil painting which I’ve shared in my first blog post. 

I’m sharing this picture again because this oil painting was the first ever oil painting I did, it was a new start for me. And now, it’s a favourite hobby for me.

Life is nothing without lovely people in it. I would like to thank everyone for being there for me. Especially my sister, my mother, my life, my friends. This year can never been happy without you all. You all inspire me.

Love you all and begin this coming year with soo much of love and happiness. Have a super duper year..❤

Listen to your own voice, your own soul

It is a lovely day, with a warm weather completed by the cool breeze that makes you all alive again!! I was thinking that what should I write today? Which drawing of mine should I share today? And finally found that drawing which I drew few years back.  This picture is absolute favorite of mine. As we say ‘Old is Gold’, this picture is 24 carat gold for me. It beautifully shows the love a mama elephant has for her baby elephant. The universal love and care every mother has for her children.😍

Love, what does it define? We say love has no boundaries; love is this love is that… I know, it’s all TRUE. But, does we only have Love for others or which we have for something? Well NO. It’s not only about the love which we have for someone or something but also for ourselvesLove is what keeps us alive. Right? You know what “Mickey Mouse” told, the same Mickey Mouse one of our favorite cartoon character. He told that, “To laugh at yourself IS TO LOVE YOURSELF. Well said,. Right? There are always going to be things you don’t like about yourself or reasons to compare yourself to others. I myself used to do that, I used to compare myself with others. But when I realized that there is only one ME. Nobody else can be YOU. Be yourself. Love yourself. I thought I should the BEST of ME. And now, I’m the BEST in myself. 🙂

So guys, You will get only one YOU. Be the ‘BEST YOU’ possible.  Let me tell you, The secret of attraction is to love yourself more than to be loved.😉

If some asks you to name all the things you love, don’t even take a second to think, just ‘name yourself’ first. ❤ ❤
