Stardust



Most of us keep hankering about the happiness we always find so elusive. This conceptual work shows that the light of happiness we seek outside actually lies inside us. True joy cannot be found in any other thing except self.

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Music



Maria Von Trapp (actress Julie Andrews) from 'The Sound of Music' 

This Oscar winning 1965 musical drama is one of my most favorite movies! It was inspired by a real family of Captain Baron Von Trapp, an Austro-Hungarian Navy officer.

Love


Stars, like ripe fruits, hang low enough to be plucked. All we need is support and true love. Be it roaring rivers or high mountains, love makes every goal possible!

Sparrow



The ubiquitous little chirpy thing, the house sparrow has become a rare sight these days. Thanks to all the fast urbanization and factors like cell phone towers, lack of trees and greenery, more concrete, widespread use of pesticides and many others, sparrows are fast becoming extinct. I miss them so much.

'Still I Rise' - A Portrait of Maya Angelou



Tried Derwent Pastel Pencils today. This is a pastel portrait of Maya Angelou, the great American writer and reformer. pastel pencils are far more easier than bar pastels for these provide much control and neatness.



Medium- Pastel pencils on Brustro 160 gsm A5 pastel paper. This paper is not smooth but is slightly dotted in texture which I think, is not very easy to work upon.

Her poem 'Still I Rise' is one of my favorite poems. Read more about Maya Angelou@ Wiki

Wings



'Far and wide my wings I spread
Cutting the untamed winds I fly
Calm is my mind, high is my head,
This whole universe is my sky'


I did this work using masking tape (for this indicative bird). Done in watercolor and Pitt pens on 5*7" watercolor paper.
