This has to be by far my most favorite painting. Oil on canvas and I call it ‘Roja’. I still remember being mighty pleased when I could paint the water drop and bring the right effect.The reference used was a picture from the Internet, of which (again!) I do not have the link.
On another note, I was nominated for ‘The Very Inspiring Blog’ award by Benjamin of les3elephants which is a wonderful blog.Check it out. He is living the life of his dreams after moving from Paris and creating an Eco-friendly resort in Kerala. I respect people who just follow their heart and go against the tide. Benjamin, you are one of them and thank you very much for this kind gesture.
You know how much I wanted to win a prize when I was young, well I am no different now. This award made me feel so important though a little thought did pop up in my mind ‘Who in the name of god was I inspiring?’. Benjamin also mentioned that I could decline the award. You got to be kidding me! Of course not! I very much want my award.
So as per the rules let me tell you 7 interesting (or rather weird) things about me-
1.I am a HUGE Harry Potter and J.K.Rowling fan. But just the books and a little bit of the movies.I am almost on the verge of believing that they are for real.I swear I have seen Hedwig at my window when I read the first book.
2.I love cheese and can eat it any time of the day or night in any form unless its decayed.Also I love mothichoor laddoos and can gobble about a kilo in one go.
3.My pet name is Honey.*cough*
4.I love to smell kerosene,petrol and paint.
5.I go nuts over rain and water bodies like oceans,rivers,ponds,even fountains but cannot swim!
6.I get insanely mad at people who do not treat their domestic-help,maids,gardeners,watchmen,etc properly.
7.I am a vegetarian by choice.And it is not about killing animals and being cruel or whatever.And I know plants have life too.I just choose to be a vegetarian.I eat cakes and cookies that have eggs but not eggs as such.Also I cook meat,fish and eggs for others.
