Oil Painting for Breakfast

I feel alive. Filled with passion. All day long. All week long. All I have been thinking about are lines, values and colors. I got five canvasses all primed and prepped. Sketches in each one, raw and waiting for dabs of paint. I am ready to lose myself again for a few days. How glorious.

Indian Bride Series: Kalpana


With great trepidation she starts the very first day of her new life


Yet Her face is aglow

Her cheeks blushing crimson

Her eyes sparkling like precious stones , emerald and diamonds


She is breathtaking in her green lehenga

She is gorgeous

She is radiant


Today she shines brighter

than the jewels on her hair
