Designs for Kasturi's Kuotes


This is a new design I am trying with the logo designed by Nicholas from NID.  Am not sure how it looks. Nick messaged me to say the logo should not be compressed. Will play around with a few more designs and see! That means I now not only have to paint and write but also work out a design for my quote with my art on it! I thought all I wanted was to rest after a hectic week at work! But then, creativity beckons!

I painted flowers after ages. I have been busy drawing figures and making trips to Art Society in between for figure work. However, I have also come to a flower block as many of you know! This is yet another of crowd sourced images of flowers sent by friends on my facebook.
This artwork is inspired by an image of poppies sent from a friend's beauteous garden and I hope I have done justice to their fierce beauty. I have so many more images to go!!

Another distraction to my art has been my house cleaning. I have been on a cleaning spree and have come to such a stage that I had to throw even brushes and few old paintings! THat's the price of living in  small apartments in big cities!

I have a few figure works to squeeze in before I work on the next floral, which will be hopefully soon!

A logo for Kasturi's Kuotes


Nicholas, a student from National Institute of Design, India sent me some logo designs on his own and I used one of them on a template for my quotes.Am yet to check all his designs.
I had been careful about separating my quotes from my art but a logo is about art. Kasturi's Kuotes and Kasturi's Canvas seem to be converging!Meanwhile, I know that I should get back to drawing soon!

Announcement :

I now have a copyright for my original quotes that I write with the hashtag #kasturiskuotes on social media.

Those of you who connected to me on facebook and are reading this,would know about my quotes. For those who came in late, this is how the story goes:

I started writing one liners on my blog Spontaneisms http://spontaneisms.blogspot.in/ a few years back and then went on to write them regularly on facebook. They started getting popular and shared by friends and foes alike!!

As suggested by friends and a few well wishers, I compiled them and filed for a copyright under the title 'Kasturi's Kuotes'.

Well, that's that! Kasturi's Kuotes are now under copyright.

You are free to copy or share them with #kasturiskuotes with due acknowledgement to the author.

Thanks to all those who felt my quotes were worth being compiled and worth getting a copyright.

A work I walked in and out of, it was finally completed when a conversation with a friend sent me packing to the easel! I have been sketching a lot of late. Plan to do more florals tomorrow.

The resplendence of laburnum cannot be fully brought out on canvas, but that does not deter me from painting them. This was painted from a photo sent by a colleague . I delighted in splashing the golden colours while painting this one.
