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 🙂

And oh yes, do follow me on instagram i.instagram.com/simplyanublog/

And here’s another one with zentangles

Make over

I wanted to do running horses on this canvas. But what turned out was a sad big blotch of color with the so called horse sketch looking more like the picture of an alien.

I couldn’t throw it away, so decided to revamp it. I painted the whole canvas black and did my signature design on it.

WIP

I wish I had the chance to repaint a few things of my life. Few words, incidents that I could do again with different strokes and colors. Maybe it would have changed the whole painting…

Do you ever feel you want a revamp?

Be (lieve)

From the sketch book…

To be what you dream…is probably the first effort taken to take that dream of yours to the next step.

I always thought that artists are people who have their huge paintings hung in galleries…the reality is far from it. Each of us are artists in our own way.

Our way of life is an art by itself.

Be 3

Someone told me that to be an artist, you feel like one first. What a deep truth said so casually!

So to be(lieve) or not to be(lieve)… its all in you.

Dream… It all starts with this

From the sketchbook

When I hesitated to restart doing art, for reasons of starting from scratch so late in life, someone special told me exactly this

Dream 2

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

Dream is the beginning of everything, so dont stop 🙂

Sometimes all it takes is a push to start putting your dream on the road to reality.

10 min princess

I do carry a sketch book with me almost always but very rarely get to draw in it.

This Indian lady was doodled during a flight trip and remains one of my favourite. Why? Because its a 10 min work and…
