150 !!!

hi everyone, its been really long since i last blogged :) . 2 months ... longest break i took from blogging ever . But i discovered instagram :) ... i have been posting my stuff on instagram... and it goes with the handle name pracheevash. Although i love blogging i cannot share as much on a blog as i can on instagram so i made the switch. I would love it if you guys checked my profile on instagram:).
Its my 150th post yeee. When i started almost three years back i didnt knew i'd make it this far. I have shared some of my best stuff on this blog.. and would continue to do so... but not with such regularity... or may be regularly when life settles down a bit and its pace is reduced :)
For this special post i have a very special painting i made a few days back. It has a saying which i believe in and is for now my favourite . Hope you like it :)

                              travelling this week... but blogging ;)

that green thingy at the bottom of the page is something i have seen in my childhood... it was called `hold all' and that was what it use to do precisely. back then all journeys were incomplete without this...while packing up for this trip...i was reminded of this oldie...hence here it is .

Every few weeks i go crazy about Hibiscus :). this season my garden is full of these beautifully red hibiscus flowers and no wonder i painted them again.. and i am blogging about them again.
i have a bad habit of buying stuff and not really using them... i mean i wait for some special occasion to use them. i don`t know what i wait for :). Now i bought these exquisite watercolor paper sheets almost six months back. But i have been saving them for some `special day'.finally i decided this week, that special day is never going to arrive,today is special and i m going to paint on them today. i took them out and painted beautiful red hibiscus on them...and they have come out pretty well... hope u guys like them as well.

“वक्रतुंड महाकाय कोटिसूर्यसमप्रभ।

निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा॥

“Lord Ganesh of curved elephant trunk and huge body,

Whose brilliance is equal to billions of suns in intensity,

Always removes all obstacles from my endeavours truly,
I respectfully pray to him with all my revered sincerity.”

lets welcome him....lord  Ganesh (also spelled Ganesa or Ganesha and known as Ganapati, Vinayaka and Pillaiyar)  the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles of both material and spiritual kinds.

i painted Ganesha this week ....We (those from this side of world) are preparing to welcome him for ten days of festivities (its one of my favorite time of the year). i love the whole vibrancy,the color,the feeling of hope,happiness that somehow pervades the atmosphere. i have tried to bring that to my painting.hope you guys like it .  :)

                  hi everyone....somebody requested me to paint some stones for this week started with that  and  as i like to put my finger in too many pies at the same time... i started a big painting and a repainting an old one (it was not finished i felt ).
But all that hardwork was fun..i really hope to see the smile on my painted stones recipient`s (;) ) face.

                                 for me bliss is riot of colors  :)

            There are always flowers for those who want to see them..... Henri Matisse

string of love

“He’s my brother, my blood. He annoys the hell out of me most of the time, but when it comes right down to it I want to see him graduate from college and have little annoying mini-Alexes and mini-Brittanys running around in the future”

                                  to happiness and love always

tied with string of love 3

“To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.”

― Clara Luz Zuniga Ortega

its that time of the year again...when we (we living in this side of world) celebrate sister brother love. as i have blogged number of times that i have been truly blessed to have my brother`s in my life...for me this time is truly sentimental.We are all now separated through distance..but all of us do remember the amazing growing up years we had together...which forged one of the strongest bonds i have in life. this bond has been thankfully strengthened by our amazing spouses....thank you you all :D
thank you girls and P for strengthening our bond

this year i printed my above two artwork into two sets of cards...which i have sent along with my Rakhi ( string)...

my cards ;)

my previous posts on brother sister love can be found here,here and here.

                   finally i have a list of all things i louveeee .

birds & letters


                                                                               “The minute I heard my first love story,

                                                                                I started looking for you, not knowing
                                                                                 how blind that was.
                                                                                 Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
                                                                                 They're in each other all along.” 
                                                                                                                                      ― Rumi

hi, this week i painted and painted... and i am making an effort right now to leave my paints and blog ;)...some days its just like this and i love it :)
i have started (yet) another journal to practice my lettering. i started first with alphabets only ..but then  decided that it was not so much fun without any birds... so added birds to my pages. i got to alphabet C only...but i kinda like the slow pace :).

curiously i have discovered that i don`t like lowercase alphabets ...and they have not come up so nicely too in my journal ;)

birds and letters

finally there is friendship day around d corner...wish all my friends a very happy friendship day:) a bigggggg hug!!!
