HARI OM- Acrylic Painting

Here I tried to make a very rare combination of OM and holy flute of Lord Krishna.
        OM or AUM is of paramount in Hinduism. Although OM symbolizes the most profound concept of Hindu belief, it is in use daily. The Hindu begin their day or any work or a journey by uttering OM. The sacred symbol is often found at the head of letters, at the beginning of examination papers and so on. Many Hindus wear the sign of OM as a pendant , as an expression of spiritual perfection. This symbol is enshrined in every Hindu temple. It is interesting to note that a newly born child is ushered into the world with this holy sign. After birth , the child is ritually cleansed and the sacred syllable OM is written  on its tongue with honey. Thus right at the time of birth the syllable OM is initiated into the life of a Hindu and ever remains with him as the symbol of piety. OM  is also a popular symbol used in contemporary body art and tattoos
        Flute is the oldest musical instrument known to mankind. Everyone is attracted towards the melodious sound of flute, which is Lord Krishna’s favourite instrument. Among all Hindu Gods ,Lord
Krishna is called as “Natkhat”( naughty) since he played pranks during his childhood with his friends Gwaalas and also  with his  God-Mother Yashoda and later in youth, he played pranks with Gopikas, of course at times he showed his various LEELAS. It is said that sometimes he talked to his dearest spiritual companion Radha through the Flute Tune which Radha only understood  perfectly. Krishna advised his devotees to become his flute . He said that in the human personality structure ,as in the flute, there are 8 main spots: The five organs of perception, mind, intellect and ego. If you get rid of your ego and become like a hollow reed flute, then the Lord will come to you, pick you up , put his lips and breathe through you and out of the hollowness of your heart, the captivating melody will emerge for all creation to enjoy.

Painting with sponge

 Sponge is one of my favorite tools.It is very easy and fast technique of painting.We can make very good designs  and textures with sponges.I really love to do painting with this way. I enjoy it most just like to play a game.It needs just a little trick and caution...
If you are using more than one color in your work ,it is very important that you use different sponge pieces for every color.See the picture below here I used three acrylic colors ( crimson lake, black & antique bronze) to make my painting background,I also used three pieces of sponge for every color.I made it on canvas
color mixing or blending is also very important and its not very tough .Its only depends on practice ...
It makes  our hands ,fingers and nails dirty but no problem you'll enjoy to do painting with this way. See my hand..
This is complete background for my painting
Here is one more texture i made with sponges only

Nature inspires

Every art is unique and represent the feeling of its artist. All artist take inspiration from somewhere or the other such as from the nature, people, animals, birds, monsters, fairies & even sometimes from the dreams. Inspirations are everywhere around us but it depends on the person who sees it. Different artwork inspire us & fill our heart with joy & happiness. I think above all artist God is the biggest artist who made such lovely & beautiful things around us. Every aspect of nature is beautiful ,awesome , wonderful , it refresh our mood & uplift our spirit also ......
I took these clicks through my nature walk. That day I was little bit upset but when I saw all trees, flowers, grass, sky, birds, falling leaves around me n yes I stand up quickly & click these photos .With my every click I was feeling relax...:)

look at these lovely flowers blooming all together
now it was sunset time but my son (Aachman) was still playing in playground , not  ready for back home

My Whimsy Style

These days i am trying for whimsical art.Its a vibrant and playful style of art.Its characteristically (but not necessarily) bright,colorful,fun,and carefree.This artwork lifts the spirit and makes you happy.
               Whimsical art is artwork created in a style that is unique,out of ordinary or fanciful.Their subject matter is sometimes may be humourous.
All whimsical artist are different in their work.Some paint people,some paint animals,monsters,fairies etc and while other paint landscapes.I also started my whimsical work with nature.I love to make flowers,clouds,rainbow,leaves,grass,trees,butterflies etc.You can see different aspects of nature in my whimsical paintings.
These all my nature paintings made in whimsical style. But i also want to paint people in my style and will definitely try for this.
