Possibilities

Possibilities (30"x 40") is a mixed media painting on canvas. It uses uplifting colours and imagery to communicate the message that there are immense possibilities that lie within us and all around us. The choice is ours.

My process of creating art is akin to the process of discovery. I grew up in India, where people wear colourful clothes and beautiful jewellry. The festivals in India are a display of colours and artistic creativity. All of these things influence my artistic creations. I find colour is my friend. It helps me express what I feel deep down.


Look at this painting entitled, 'Possibilities'. The luminous colours of yellow, red, iridescent purple, aqua green themselves communicate immense possibilities. If you look closely, you will find various symbols that communicate the message that all possibilities lie with in us. You'll see a profile in the right side of the painting looking beyond in a faraway landscape. Yes, there are immense possibilities lie ahead and at the same time there are possibilities behind and all around. There are figurative elements of birds, hands, shells, flowers and a doorway- all symbolizing enormous possibilities all around us. It is up to us to choose and make the best of our opportunities.

Sweetest Little Thing Donation

They provide various programs for the community members of all ageas while giving much needed support to local artists. I feel fortunate that this fundraiser gives me a chance to share my art with the public and at the same time do a charitable act.

It has not been possible to connect with friends and family the way we used to. I have missed painting on Thursdays with my artist friends. It has been a challenge to not get together with other artist friends and share ideas with them. Yet, there have been many positives also. It has given me time to reflect, paint and draw more. In this blog post I am sharing some of the highlights of the year 2020.
