‘Beneath that plain white sheet lies the true colors of the soul’
My facebook page is up and running and I am excited. I had always wanted to have a page with all my handiwork, to see what the response is like?
As a person who creates, the thought that is always on my mind is that how does the person who looks at my art or pictures or stuff I make, value it. What does he interpret? Does he see what I see? If not, what is it that he sees? So many questions!!! 🙂
The facebook page hopefully will let me know others’ perception of my art. And will connect me to different artists as well.
My aim is not to get maximum likes, although that adds to my happiness 🙂 but only when I get reviews, comments do I feel I’m evolving. But I must admit that the response when I started this page really blew me out!
A lot of my friends never knew I was creatively inclined. I never let my arty side surface during school and college days. Infact it took a lot of courage and also motivation to start doing art again. A few of them who have known me, have been my moral support throughout, every single one of them gave me the needed push to start it. Some went a step ahead to send me daily motivations, inspirations, just to make sure the fire in me didnt die out. Whoever I asked for help, they extended their hand for help.
I see their excitment for me and I will treasure them forever.
I feel the expectation from me is high. I feel I have a commitment now. That is going to help me grow as a person and as an artist. And I am all set to take it up.
“As she sat during the wee hours of the morning near the departure gate, waiting to board- she notices very few people sitting, almost all of them engrossed in their gadgets, all in their own world- there is a lot of turmoil in her mind despite the serenity around. The kind of serenity that brings in sadness, loneliness and ironically, a lot of peace and positivity, a feeling that everything’s gonna be alright at the other end of this journey, She does not want to fight those feelings as at the place where she stands, thinking and staying positive is the only thing that can lead her on. There is no other practical solution.”
The design on this is called a ‘Mandala’, something that I do a lot. I’ve been doing this art form for years without actually knowing its name. Thanks to Instagram, I got in touch with mandala artists, needless to say I felt part of a BIG family 🙂
