Time for a couple of updates for all my readers. My work has been featured
in the the BBC Good Homes India magazine September Issue 2011,
article 'Doe-eyed damsels' in their art/designer profiles feature
titled 'Homemade beauties'.
I am honoured to be part of this wonderful magazine
and even more so to share space here with two ladies who need no introduction,
whom I admire and whose work I adore:
Vineeta Nair (who has been an inspiration & a huge support for me
since the time we e-met each other on blog land) and Kalyani Ganapathy.
A big thanks to Chandana Banerjee and the BBC Good Homes India team.
Chandana blogs at cookiejarsandfireflies where she says:
''Writing and journalism are my bread, butter and jam;
running Pink Elephant Writing Studio, the coffee I need every morning;
embroidery, art and craft, the icing on the cake.'' Indeed!
The second update, I was in India for a wedding in the family since July end
and had plans of returning to Geneva end of August.
However, there have been some change of plans and
we are not going back until Durga puja is over.
One of the first things I did when we decided to extend our stay
was to visit the art institutes and galleries to explore
possibilities, and, the response has been great so far.
More updates on that front later. Painting and blogging resumes.
Ganesh-ji visits us during Chaturthi each year,
which was at the beginning of this month.
Here is Ganesha dressed as a north-Indian groom
with his two wives Ridhhi and Sidhhi
dressed in a southern Indian traditional style.
Mount: Gallery wrapped canvas
Medium : Acrylics
Size: 20.5 cm X 25cm
Ridhhi and Sidhhi have brought him his favourite sweets
(modaks from the Mumbai and rasgullas from the Kolkata).
My work started here on this blog,
with all of you and it is your support and feedback that
keeps me going, thank you for your patience and love.
