Lovebirds on a Tree ~ multi canvas textured painting

Lovebirds in Colorful Tree Acrylic Canvas Painting
A multi-canvas artwork

Fall is coming to an end and we are stepping into Winter. However much I love the beauty of different seasons there’s one thing I love all year through – full trees. In my last post I mentioned on how cold it’s getting here with the rain and the wind, and all I can think about now is hot tea! While sipping on some, I embarked upon my biggest canvas painting, thus far!  Continue reading “Lovebirds on a Tree ~ multi canvas textured painting”

I recently announced my Etsy art shop with my Peacock Feathers Acrylic Painting.
Hearing that I was thinking of my own Etsy shop, my friend was very excited. She encouraged me to go ahead with it. She has a baby boy and she wanted a customized wall art for her baby’s nursery. And I was more than happy to do it for her.

Monday Magenta

Cherry Blossom Canvas Painting
It’s Spring!

I like flowers. Not to the extent that I want everything in floral patterns but in small doses, yes. But I was awestruck at the pretty-ness of Cherry Blossoms when I first saw them! I think it is the only flower design which I will not mind having on my table covers, plates, curtains, as wall photos etc. (Or maybe, that’s not such a good idea after all, I can imagine the look on AB’s face if he came home to see his house look like a cherry blossom festival. Hmm.) Anyway, moving on. Now, how did cherry blossoms turn my ‘Monday blues’ to ‘Monday magenta’? We will see..

The Ganesha Series

Ganesha Canvas Painting Series
Sneak peek. More pictures below..

Here’s presenting my Ganesha Series, which also happens to be the first set of art I did for my home. It is close to my heart and I hope to add on to it in the future and, hopefully, when I have a ginormous wall. (Imagine how many Ganesha paintings could fit there!)

Ganesha Canvas Painting – Part Two

Ganesha Canvas Painting
The reds and orange have been blended in very well without evident orange streaks. I preferred soft blended background for this.

Having painted two, I did not really know how many more I wanted to complete my Ganesha series. Looking at the number of canvas panels left and the perfect wall in my house (where I envisioned them to be placed on) I settled for four. Four seemed a good number, even number, I thought. I can place the pictures however I want, rhombus, square, diagonal straight line etc. Now, with all these in my head I started my third one. Continue reading “Ganesha Canvas Painting – Part Two”

Ganesha Canvas Painting – Part One

 

Ganesha Canvas Art
A religious shrine or room is common in many Indian homes. We had a number of deities in our home shrine in Kolkata but ‘Gonesh thakur’ ( as Lord Ganesha is called in Bengal) surprisingly was not there. But a beautiful terracotta Ganesha and three smaller ones (also in terracotta) sat pretty in our living room as decor. As much as Lord Ganesha is worshiped with pomp and pleasure in some parts of India (as in the festival of ‘Ganesha Chaturthi’), the powerful and popular Lord of Success, with the body of a man and a head of an elephant, has received a great reputation as a piece of home decor and art as well, being created in different pieces of stone, marble, terracotta, clay and of course on walls as paintings.
