Robin williams as patch adam

Hunter Patch Adams: What's wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can't we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we're going to fight a disease, let's fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference.

Inspired from movie "Patch Adams"

Autumn Song

"Autumn Song "  [SOLD]

Like a joy on the heart of a sorrow,
   The sunset hangs on a cloud;
A golden storm of glittering sheaves,
Of fair and frail and fluttering leaves,
   The wild wind blows in a cloud.

Hark to a voice that is calling
   To my heart in the voice of the wind:
My heart is weary and sad and alone,
For its dreams like the fluttering leaves have gone,
   And why should I stay behind?

~ Sarojini Naidu

Hope is the thing with feathers

Water color on paper

"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops—at all

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm

I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

~ Emily Dickinson

Plein air painting in Lalbagh

Watercolor on bockingord paper
11x14 inches

Last Sunday early morning I went to Lal bagh botanical garden with my husband and my sister. We usually go there in weekends. They do morning walking/jogging, I do sketching/painting. Every time I was disappointed. I was so confused what to do what not to do. This time after searching for some time I found this small bridge with bambo trees.  I sat there and did one small sketch, n then did this painting. And yes water was not there, I included in my painting  :-) For the first time I like the outdoor painting output and the experience also.

Phenomenal Woman

Title : Phenomenal Woman
Medium : Watercolor on paper
Size : 14x11 inches

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
      ~ Maya Angelou

This painting is inspired from poem "Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou. I love her poems, they represents the hope, pride and confident of a woman.

Landscape: 1

Watercolor on paper
A4 Size paper

I have been always saying I am very bad in landscape painting but not working on that. So finally I started working on this seriously now. may be  :-). Before doing this painting I saw few online demos, read some books, about various techniques. Then I attempted this one. Actually I did few more paintings, which I didn't like n not fell like sharing. 

I saw this house some time back while I was walking to my house. Lots of things around there. Its always confused what to include and what not to. This time I took some time to simplifying the painting. Tried not to include all the details. And I'm little happy with the result.

Title: A little model
Medium : Pencil and charcoal on paper
Size : A4

I saw this cute little girl in a park last year and she was posing nicely for photo. I like her innocent face and her dress. But what I like most the way she was posing for photographs. I also took one photo of her and was thought of painting or sketching one day.

I did this using charcoal stick and pencil. Though I am not much comfortable with charcoal sticks, but I like its outcome and started liking it. I like the original sketch than this digital photo.
