Portrait - Carol Marine

                                           9X12 Oil on Canvas

I am a huge fan of Carol Marine's bold brushwork and her ability to simplify an object to minimal brushstrokes. This is my attempt at painting her portrait.

Zaeka - My first logo design

This is my first attempt at designing a logo. It is for my husband's food blog.  He wanted the name on a steamy background and this is what we came up with after a lot of brain storming. I like it ! :)

Manan cooks really delicious, flavorful food and writes all about the experience. If you are foodie, check  out his experiments at

                                                                     Original art -Oil on Canvas

There are days of absolute despair in an artist's life...when after hours of effort a painting doesn't work, and one can't figure out how to make it work . I often have days like these and  many of my paintings do not make it to my blog :( In fact, I keep joking with my artist friends of having a big bonfire to get rid of piles of bad work :)

This painting gave me a very hard time . I wiped out the painting twice..and after two failed attempts I decided to give one final try. I am glad I like it now...and it makes up for the bad days.

My friends, the only way to make a painting work is to keep trying. Good Luck to all you folks there :)

The morning after


This is one of my older paintings. Almost a year old! I didn't like it much when I painted it...and today I think I know why :) The edges are too defined all through the figure!
