My Painting Raag Basant 2, finally reached the Noida home for which it was made! It takes pride of place in the exquisite set-up of the drawing room, above a beautiful setee!
A lot of planning and toil has gone into this work. A complete dry run with samples made to match the colours of the upholstery theme and sizing went into the pre plan! The painting itself took me three weekends and then almost a month of drying time. As about the courier, that was another story. But finally there it hangs, resplendent in the golden frame!

Two of my artworks from the #Raaga Project, from Raag #Miya #Malhar series were displayed in India Art Festival 2019, Mumbai by Galerie Art Eterne. I was delighted to see my babies hung on the same wall along with works from eminent Indian and International artists. I knew all these years, that my love for Hindustani Classical Music and my love for Art should merge and finally they have ! What better platform than the canvas, where they come together in the most beautiful way, with a myriad of colours! My heartfelt thanks to Galerie Art Eterne, from Delhi for exhibiting my artwork consistently for a few years now. Their professional approach and quality of interaction is great and I have been lucky to get associated with them. Some of my friends took special effort in sparing time to come and visit my booth and I was overwhelmed and filled with renewed energy to paint again! My evenings are going to be colourful!

Josselin Church Choir
Josselin Town Prep for Medieval Festival
Me with my sketch of Josselin Chateau
Oldest house Josselin
Ornate door of an antique house
With fellow Artists Payel and Supriya from France and London respectively and a little boy!
In June 2018, I travelled to France to a quaint commune called Josselin for a vernissage between Indian, Spanish and French artists in Galerie Espace Zen. Though the display itself was not organized well, I had a great time and saw different styles of art and also learnt Papier Mache from a French Sculptor. We ended up doing a beautiful sketch crawl in Josselin, which is a quaint but touristy place due to the Josselin Chateau belonging to the Rohan family. The whole town was in preparation for the annual Medieval Festival in July and wore a festive look. Healthy French food, beautiful cool weather, long walks and slight drizzles made Josselin a great experience. I have come back with impressions of Brittany , which is where Josselin is and the colour blue reigns high on my mind. I have already started some work where am influenced by Brittany colours ! After the display, we did museum tours in Paris and it was great to see the artworks of all my dream painters for real! It was my second trip to Le Louvre, but am not done yet!
Waiting to get back to France soon!

A snapshot of my art corner at the group show in London, which came to an end yesterday. A very well curated and well publicized show, the Bhavan is one of the eminent spaces for the Indian crowd in London. A friend of mine, went all the way from his office , changing two tubes to go and visit my show and also send in pics!
Little did I know , when I met Supriya in Josselin, France two months back in an art display where both of us were participating, that I would be displaying in London so soon!
I must say I missed being physically present but these days technology helps create many bridges and so cannot really complain!
