My Pet Lab Retriever painting

 Recently my pet Labrador Retriever has become my willing muse to most of my water color paintings. Not a penny spent for getting her to pose. Mostly clicks turned into paintings, as she is not very cooperative where staying still for me is concerned.

Here is a few of them

They are all water color paintings on paper of size -9x6 inches.

Visit pixels.com to view or collect prints of these paintings; or products with these artworks printed on them. T shirts and mobile cases with this artwork are quite the rage for pet owners and lovers.

 Proud to be a part of an art show created for the cause of ' Right to quality education for the children of Dream School Foundation - and NGO of Bengaluru.

In this show which celebrates the Women's Day of March 2021, all artists have pledged 40% of their proceeds of the show to the Dream School Foundation NGO and the show starting 8th March will go through for one month till 8th April 2021.

Acrylic on canvas

I have portrayed on canvas using a limited palette of just Cerulean Blue and Cadmium Orange - A young woman loveingly cares and is carryling her child on her slim waist. This being a normal way to carrying a child in our society. A child indeed feels the warmth the mother's love and also has the advantage of viewing the world from a higher plane seated on it's mother's arms.
It is a very comfortable way of taking care of child for the Mom too, as she can carry on with most of her duties this way. Some of us may have experienced this beautiful stage of life on Mother's Arms.

the ongoing- Online Art Show - OnArt Fair- by Mojarto

 'Indian Landscapes' - paintings of the 'The Drawing Room Musings' series of paintings are displayed in this new kind of Virtual Art Show organized by Mojarto.com

display at 

Pleased to be part of the ongoing virtual art show organized by Mojarto.com, and NDTV undertaking.

The show has started off today, and will be happening through 28 29 30 August.2020. I guess this is going to be the new norm, of viewing paintings online. The human socializing element may be lesser, but we may have to go through this for some more time I guess, until the Global corona virus pandemic resolves. Praying that it all gets over as fast as it came up.

Thinking on the brighter side, probably more people will be able to view online in the comfort of their homes. And the possibility of showing the real art online to a bigger audience is a new encouraging experience.

Registration is required to view the show online, and the last 2 days comes free.- 

Click OnArt Fair to instantly register and start visiting the booths of 75 artists if India, including mine. A great opportunity to view the best of art in the comfort of our home.

Happy viewing.

Perceptions and Explorations - group art show - Bengaluru

My recent group art exhibition - 'Perceptions and Explorations' was held from 27 January 2020 uptil 2nd February 2020.
Curated by artist Shyamala Ramanand and inaugurated by 3 eminent artists of Bengaluru - Sri Chandranath Acharya, Sri Baburao Nadoni and Sri Eby N Joseph, -  it was a show case of paintings by seven artists including me and the curator too. An amalgamation of various styles and subjects was presented in this show. 

I met and made new artist friends, which made the show an unforgettable one.

I took up my favorite subject of 'Body Language' again and presented a part 2 of this series in the form of figurative paintings. Introducing a little texture and palette knife work this time and also using pastel shades, I really enjoyed painting this series.

Sharing the paintings I had displayed here, and some beautiful moments of the show here -
