Painting - You can read with fingers…




Paintings…  A little of colors that acts on the soul through the intermediary of the senses.

We read paintings through eyes. But sometimes while watching a painting, I wish like… if I could touch it the way they are psychologically simulating my feelings and imagination.

And so I thought of embossing the painting, well mine is not a “Painting”, it’s a regular piece of art with embossed details.


Here are some details on how to create such embossed painting. Embossed Painting Tutorial.

My Painting - Dharmachakra mudra




I am not a painting artist, but yes, sometimes I do play with colors.
I saw this picture on internet (www.redbubble.com) and this picture generated an internal urge to paint something. And I painted this picture. I think it was 2004, my college days, when I made some sketches. Long time... So… how is it?


Note:
This painting is created for personal use; let me know if you want to get it removed.

Paper Mache – Violin


I always wanted to try paper mache craft, but somehow couldn’t fetch time for it. At last, I tried and successfully created a violin with newspaper – paper mache clay.
Because of two reasons I used bright colors for it. One, I was preparing it for a baby and second, the clay created with paper mache is gray due to the newspaper ink, so bright color perfectly covers it.
Here is the tutorial for it - “Newspaper paper mache -Violin”.

Thermocol wall art




This was just a time pass activity to make my baby busy for some time. My husband was having an interview call that day and we didn’t want to disturb him.
I had some thermocol pieces that come as a packaging material for TVs or refrigerators, one of its pieces had perfect nice square cuts inside it and were looking pretty, so I quickly cut some color paper squares and attached it to the back side of the thermocol with paper pins, and it was done. My daughter enjoyed creating it and later we played some color games with that. How innocent kids are… even small things can make them happy. :)

Bamboo Tree


Bamboo was always one of my favorite trees. But very recently, I got to know very interesting things about it, which increased my love for Bamboos.
In ancient traditional Chinese culture; Bamboo is regarded as a behavior model of the gentleman. It’s a symbolization of virtue; it is always closely related to people of positive spirits. Its deep root denotes resoluteness, straight stem represents honorability, its interior modesty and its clean exterior exemplifies chastity. Because of its features like uprightness, tenacity and hollow heart, people endow bamboo with integrity, elegance and plainness, though it is not physically strong. Similarly a gentleman, a man does not need to be physically strong, but he must be mentally strong, upright, and perseverant. Just as a bamboo is hollow-hearted, he should open his heart to accept anything of benefit and never have arrogance or prejudice.
Lastly, I created this in the love of Bamboo.
