"I am interested in art as a means of living a life; not as a means of making a living."
I am sharing a poem that I came across recently and it speaks for all those who love, appreciate and value nature. ( Courtesy : POEMHUNTER )
In thy nature is beauty
In thy nature is Earth
In thy nature I find my worth
In thy nature is peace
In thy nature I find myself
In thy nature ever lasting greens
In thy nature there is more to be seen
In thy nature a beauty untold
In thy nature everything is worth more than gold
By Stephanie McGrath
The soft pastel painting below is of a scene at Kata beach, Phuket. ( A rain forested, mountainous island in Thaland ). Most of the beaches on the island are just amazing. This particular beach had these beautiful rocks on one side with a few trees in the background. The distant hills were a hazy mix of blues and greens. It was fun painting this scene. The sunlight that touched the surface of sea waves created lovely sparkles.

When sunlight falls on simple objects of nature it helps reveal its form, shape and the colours. With the changing light changes the shadows and colours. This light and shadow play in nature fascinates me and continues to be a source of inspiration to paint more.
I am painting since very long but started blogging in 2014. It has been a great experience and more than creating the art itself I am loving this journey which is helping me to get in touch with a lot many art enthusiasts. I have also recently started uploading my works on INSTAGRAM so if you like my works please follow and share.
Thanks for browsing through my works and please leave your comments to let me know what you feel about them.
