I stand alone

Seeing art is good. But too much of it can be a little distracting. At least that is what happened to me. Because of internet everyday we are able to see so many paintings in so many different styles by so many artists. And suddenly I wanted to incorporate all that into my paintings. I kept making one disaster after the other and just did not realize what was going wrong.

So I took a break for some time to clear up my mind. I just did not do anything related to art. And when I finally painted after this gap I realized that all the hangover was gone and I was not trying to force different styles into my painting. I was back to painting with my instinct, my colors, my style. And the outcome was good enough for me. I was satisfied.

The original photo was taken by a friend of mine Neeraj during his trip to Rajastan.

Off for a few days

Thank you so much everyone for wishing me good health. I am 90% now. I have missed a lot already and will have to do so for a few more days as I am off to my hometown for a few days. In the meanwhile I hope you enjoy this one.

About a month back I had been out on a small trip to a small hill and the country side in general and taken many pictures. This is done from one such photo.
