Home show… Opening soon

As we gear up for the opening, choosing frames, photographing work, sending press releases and invites I’m getting pretty excited about the opening and the show…

More to follow soon!

And it’s done

I’m slaving away for a show in Mumbai this September and using every skill I have to convert my ideas into paintings in the limited amount of time I have.

Sometimes my paintings just get stuck. I come up with an idea, sketch, turn to canvas, paint and then when I’m about 80% done- Wall… So I’m at the point where instead of spending weeks (that I don’t have) resolving the work, I have 5 at that almost – compete stage. I’m just moving on. Abandoning the work, so to say. And then, early in the morning 7am when I’m back in the studio, it just resolves itself…

Nothing like a deadline to motivate. Nothing like the morning to inspire.

I’m happy with this one. It’s nameless as of now but it makes me feel content. For now…

Bringing structure to my blog

Tiny successes certainly do bring on the motivation. One of my blog posts ‘Clearing the creative clutter in my head’ was featured on EmptyEasel and FnONewsletters and that brought on the drive to blog more frequently and within a defined structure. So, I’m defining the three main categories that I will blog about:

Personal Musings: Just a small entry almost from my personal journal
Recommendation: My opinion on an artist, art books, show or blog
Art Experiments: Sketches, photography, other paint-related experiments that I am trying out

I will also throw in an occassional contest or some advice. If there any any other kind of post you’d like to me to write about, do let me know in the comments section.
