"Earth"

This is my depiction of Earth. I have used mainly blues, green, yellow, and a touch of red.

"Diversity"



Life isn't uniform - we all know that. There is a melange of colours and textures, darks and lights. And yet, they meld together to form this fabric which sometimes stumps us. How rich a tapestry it can be! Hope you like this one.

"Upwards"

My take on a staircase leading upwards. Naturally it has metaphysical overtones. The netherworld is dark. I've tried to depict the tension between the two worlds. Make of it what you will.

"Spring - a study"

I had this idea of welcoming Spring through painting, specially since we suffered through such a terrible winter in Canada. But I didn't want to depict this via the usual images associated with the season - tulips, green trees etc. Not that that would not make a good picture, but still...call it the whim of an artist,  if you will! So, I decided to try an abstract representation which would suggest movement and Spring colours emerging after a dreary winter. This is with a variety of palette knives, and a succession of bright colours.

"Over the hills and far away"

This painting is inspired by distant hills, and shadows of clouds and sky. I used the usual suspects colour wise - so, blue, green, yellow, (both ochre and lemon), a touch of red, some brown. What I did differently this time, I used purple! The photograph didn't come out so good though.

"Last Gasp of Day"

How does a painting get made? Do I have any idea what I'm going to paint when I look at the paper? Answers to these questions perplex me. The creative process is filled with mystery. I think the best thing to do is not to question it too much, not to overthink these things. In mysterious ways, the paint and the brush interact and give meaning to the creative impulse. That's all that one needs to know!
Enjoy today's offering.
