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!
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.
The resplendence of laburnum cannot be fully brought out on canvas, but that does not retrain 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.
A painting inspired by the Shillong Golf Course. On a recent trip to Shillong, I was mesmerised once again by the sheer beauty of the place. Jacaranda trees were blooming all over the place with petals strewn all over the tin roofs of pretty cottages. Music filled the air. The sharp smell of pine trees brought a freshness to the air. Couldn't help doing this to capture the memories.
Visage: oil on canvas with palette knives. Is it done? Not sure yet! I haven't been painting flowers because I have run out of ideas. I have painted all the flowers found in the florist's shop and also painted the mussandas and hibiscuses from the building garden. I need to look at some new flowers for inspiration. Till then...am looking out!My story with the florist has changed..he chases me nowadays and asks me why I do not buy flowers any more for my paintings. Have I moved on to some other florist! Little does he know!
