This time for a change, I am here with some photographs, which I have taken in my recent visit to Sirsi, my native place. I consider myself extremely lucky to have been born there, which provided me ample opportunity to enjoy the pure nature right from my childhood.
I always enjoyed watching birds and their behavior. Effortless and graceful flight of birds always fascinated me. This time, got a chance to capture these avian beauties in my camera, in fact I could capture more than 30 varieties of birds without much effort. Although I find bird photography, especially wild bird photography quite difficult, I am enjoying the challenges.
I should thank my cousin for his guidance in this exploration. He not only educated me in the basics of bird watching, but also taught how to locate and approach them safely without disturbing their life and damaging the habitat, which is really important for an amateur photographer like me..
So enough of writing now!! ;) here are the photographs...
Here I have posted those 3 paintings which were exhibited in one of the prestigious shows - "Artists for Wildlife and Nature"..It was a great honor to be part of this show and got an opportunity to meet talented wildlife artists of our country..
I take this opportunity to thank Mr. Nagendra Muthmurdu and Mr. Ranjeet Das Shelke for providing me the reference images to paint.. Hope I gave justice to those wonderful photographs..

Here is a pallet knife Painting of size 18 X 24 inches.. Exhibited this landscape in our last art exhibition at Chitrakala Parishath.
Every good thing comes with it's own share of problems, Yes!! She strongly believes that. Being attractive hasn't really done anything good for her. She wants to hide her eye catching looks (the real problem) from the outside world.
She waits for her old age to get the problems resolved automatically.
Both the trouble-makers and sufferers know the fact hence let the story be left untold itself, without digging it too much.
Here is an abstract work depicting the above theme.
Now finally, the time has come for me to make a comeback to blogging after 7 months, sometimes it is a ton of work and you just need to take a break from doing something which you really love.. we ought to prioritize things.
As you all know, being a mother is perhaps the hardest and most rewarding job a woman will ever experience, just like the fellow mothers, I'm busy with enjoying the motherhood to the fullest, keeping my hobbies and other interests in back seat.. Even if I concentrate on my work, a corner of my mind keeps thinking about my daughter. When there are so many things running around in your mind, you will be running here and there and suddenly her call,"Amma", makes me forget everything, including the important works to be done too :)..
When you reach home and you know she is waiting for you, and watch her eyes glow on seeing you, makes you the happiest person in the world! Cuddling her, listening to her stories, making her sleep, falling asleep with her etc,,make me feel like Life can not get any better!
Time flies like anything, soon she becomes "big kid", and I just don't want to feel guilty in future for what I have missed..I have realized that my canvas can wait for me but my daughter can't,, realized that no one's life is perfect and that cannot be so, live every moment fully and understand that there is a reason for every struggle you go through, trust me that makes you better each day.
I think its enough of justification for my break now ;)
So coming to my work, Here I'm sharing one of my old paintings, "The tiger"..exhibited in our last group show at Venkatappa art gallery..
