Inky blue love

I painted again after a long time…. Lately weekends scare me. I look forward to weekends after working for 5 days, but as soon as Friday dawns, that familiar darkness starts to engulf me. I have people around, yet it feels extremely lonely. My friend and my xroomie K encouraged me to start pursuing my hobbies again and develop new ones. She says I must keep myself busy and get rid of my laziness and loneliness. I followed what she said and I felt much better after my painting was done. The turbulent feeling of despair seemed to have calmed down. Hopefully I will continue this with regularity.
So here is my painting, Inky blue love.

This is acrylic in medium with prussian blue, white, black, sienna brown, canary yellow, crimson red thrown into the mix.

Standing strong…

painting2

This painting that I made 2 days back, reminds me to stand strong against all odds. It is inspired by some of the blogs that I read and my family. It goes out for a mother, who is going against the world and societal norms to give her baby daughter a better and dignified life to live. It goes to the mother who is facing all that Mumbai throws at her :), and a couple of friends who are slogging it out in their professional and personal life.
It inspires me to stiffen up the upper lip, and face all the odds.
The medium is acrylic on canvas, and the paints are yellow, crimson red and black.

A poppy field…

I made a painting after almost 3 years. I was feeling so good when I started giving the blue wash to my canvas. The BF’s sis gave me her brushes and palette and some paints. I was more than happy to get my favorite stuff. Then, Karen and Chad in my lab spoke about having a painting session and I jumped right into their plan.
I have used Acrylic paints here and canvas sheets. I have used prussian blue, white, black, crimson red and yellow. Mixed these and got the hues that I wanted.
This painting makes me feel really good and happy inside. It reminds me of the flower fields in Carlsbad that me and BF had gone to last year.
