Tryst with leaves and Krishna continues. Yet another experiment with acrylics on a different leaf for a Friday (early) morning venture! #leafart
Year 2 at HBS begins tomorrow. 2 things have not changed over the last 12 months – my issues with punctuality, hence a delayed effort for #Janmashtami celebrations (Krishna’s birthday) and my attempt to create a water colour art on the eve of the academic year. Here, #Krishna is miraculously holding the #Govardhan mountain with his little finger amist a thunderstorm. It earned him the name #Giridhari and there are a lot of symbolic references in this event, but I shall skip them. Hope to make the most of the coming year! #Vamos
This was my last (completed) artwork in India before I moved to Boston. While I’ve still not mastered the various intricacies of painting on a #peepal leaf skeleton and I think I’m improving marginally, I’m happy that the person I gifted to treasures it more than I expected. I guess #Krishna’s charm never subsides 🙂
Yet another art experiment – combining two traditional art forms from Kerala. Thought Guruvayoor’s Krishna was a theme befitting this debut composition. A test of patience imo – from extracting the delicate Peepal leaf skeleton over 15 days of metamorphosis to painting on it without destroying the veins (or covering it up!).
