Had a productive day in the studio, painting. And a couple of paintings are almost complete.

Work in progress

A half-finished painting (turned upside-down)

We do get heavy rains these days, with thunder and lightning. Monsoon time. Mosquitoes. Paint dries slowly. Lot of power failures and Internet downtimes. At times it’s good to stay disconnected. With little distractions, you get more work done.

It’s too dark to take good photos. Will try tomorrow morning.

And I like my floor :)






"It’s awful. I feel like burning all the paintings and the studio"

"I see. It’s because paintings are the most precious things you have. When you want to hurt yourself, you abuse your paintings" says my friend, listening to me over the phone.

"Wow! Really? I never thought about it that way."

Yuhooo! I won!!

I’ve been wrestling with my computer and my new digital camera, and yes; I just won! USB ports were dead or something so I was unable to transfer my images :( So I had to get a new PCI card.

I’m such a bad photographer; as some of you know I used to hire a photographer to take pics of my paintings. But now, with this new camera, I’m going to do it myself. I’m beginning to realize(and admire) the challenges of photography. Man, it is damn difficult to take good photographs! I’m beginning to grow a great deal of respect toward all the photographers in the world.(I mean toward the REAL photographers like nicolachampagne and judywatt; not dudes like me)

I managed to capture one of my currnt works

mixed media collage on canvas board : 14″x18″

This is my newly cleaned up and painted studio space. I hung some of my favorite paintings on the wall. It’s a pretty cool place. Earlier I used to work in the living room and when people visit us I had to stop working. Now I’m liberated…haa!!!
