studio sneak peak

Just posting randomly at 00:01 hours.
I have been working on these handmade tags
to be packaged with my prints.
They are printed with
wooden hand-printing blocks
originally from Rajasthan
that I keep picking up from Anokhi.
There is a peacock, a flower, a fish
and some cool Hindu deity blocks - love 'em!
Cute little handmade thank you tags
for my lovely collectors, each piece is unique :) !
The flowers have dried up beautifully,
their colour and form - brilliant.
Here is how they look by the soft candle light.
Now it is time to get back to finish
processing these orders, post office tomorrow morning.
Thank you God :) !

just another update

Some snaps from 14.02. evening at home:
One of the many wonderful birthday wishes that
i received from you all on Facebook,
was this one message that bore this image of Kamadhenu Maa:
This one was from the wonderful photographer
and my FB friend Katya Peshakova.
I remember seeing some photos of this Goddess
while browsing books on Indian Folk art
at a Kolkata book store and being totally fascinated and
awestruck by her form and beauty.
This just had to be my next painting.

So, while the sun is making patterns on my walls today...
......and all birthday flowers are hung against the kitchen window to dry ......
.....while my FB friends keep me entertained
and the most amazing sufiana music plays on the laptop...
i am having a brilliant time sketching for my next piece.....

বাড়ি ছাড়া (away from home)

'বাড়ি ছাড়া '
(Bari: Home; Chhara: Left, leaving, without)
Acrylic on mounted canvas.
Size: 18 cm x 24 cm

I am back from India after 2 months.
I had the most wonderful time with my family,
loved ones and my wonderful friends.
The home in this painting resembles the home
I grew up in, near Kolkata, the home that is filled
with countless happy childhood memories.
Geneva is being nice to us with the sun
shining through, letting me hold on to
and reminisce the good times spent in Kolkata.
I have loads of photos and experiences to share with you all,
it'll all come - by and by.
Thank you so much for the birthday wishes,
you really made my day so special.
Have a lovely love filled day.
