Last evening Tarun and mom went grocery shopping. He came back with a sheepish smile holding a huge bunch of pale pink carnations!! Just like that! It's adorable how he does these spontaneous little things that make my day special.
The loving wrist rubs he gives me in the middle of night, when he wakes up for a few seconds and sees me hunching over my laptop chasing some deadline, are just so incredible! I can never wrap my head around how he does that!
On that note, another mushy illustration - When love come down.
I'm so glad the weekend is almost here! It's going to be a beautiful weekend too! On saturday I'll get to see a bunch of friends and celebrate the 2 birthday of a very lovely boy. I haven't seen them for a few months and am really looking forward to spending some time catching up.
And since, it's going to be super sunny, Saturday will also be prefect for a walk through Valley Forge National Park. It will be awesome!
Here is today's illustration - Bring me love. It's available for purchase here.
Curacao blue is my new favorite color and I love how fabulous it looks paired with yellows and oranges.
I hope you have a nice Thursday, I'm going to work on organizing my desktop now, its pretty chaotic now and its starting to overwhelm me! Have a nice day!
Can't believe its 5 PM already! Time just flew by today. It happens to me when I'm really engrossed in something. There are a bunch of interesting things in the pipeline this month. Will have some new and fabulous things to share pretty soon.
Are you liking all the new love themed illustrations? Here is today's illustration. It's called 'Love is real'. Its available for purchase here.
It's so wet and grey today! All I wanted to do in the morning was snuggle under my comforter and dream. Dream of lilies, swings and sunshine. Swings are my favorite. On a swing, all thoughts disappear and the incredible joy of the moment is all that matters. *Sigh*
It's good that mom is here, she makes the worlds best ginger tea. One whiff and a tiny gulp is enough to center my mind :)
We are going to eat some delicious food and then drive in the sleet to the grocery store. We will spend about 10 min picking things on our list and 30 min checking out things that we will never need. Fun time!
Oh! And don't forget to check out the latest illustration. It's called - You are the one. Also available in my shop for purchase (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66190429/you-are-the-one-limited-edition-colorful)
If some knows what is wrong with the link function on blogger and how I can fix / bypass it, I would be forever indebted.
I hope you all are having a beautiful monday! I woke up smiling today. Happy dreams in the morning do that to me. Do you remember what you dream? Sometimes I just remember the feeling (of excitement, terror, sadness or happiness) and just can't remember what the dream was all about. And I drive myself nuts trying to remember!
And here is something to make you all smile...
I had the best of time creating the letters with crazy crooked lines. My old sketch books are filled with such pen and ink letter doodles. It is very satisfying when a doodle turns into a real thing.
The print is available for purchase in my shop here - (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66118598/love-more-limited-edition-colorful)
So what are the plans for the weekend? We are going to stay in this weekend and have some friends over for movies and dinner. It's sooo cold outside that I'm pretty much indoors all day long, working on some sweet valentine illustrations. Will have some in my shop by early next week.
Signing off for the week with the final illustration of the series - Happy High.
Has anyone tried Jalapeño Jelly? It's fabulous!! I finished a jar a few days back and I have been craving for more ever since. Its sweet and spicy at the same time and tastes great with whole wheat bread.
It seems my two snail friends seem to like it as much as I do. Today's illustration is called Sugar Rush. Available in my shop here.
Inspiration is found in the weirdest of places. When we were in San Diego there were a lot of snails walking around my worm bins. To me it always looked liked they were in a alternative state of consciousness. High on life perhaps? I remember thinking about painting their shells red to match red, yellow and green planters in the patio.
Tipsy, is the first of four illustrations from the series. It can be found in my shop here.
Join me on Friday (7th January) from 6.00 PM to 9.00 PM at the F&N Gallery for the January First Friday Juried Show. Yes! My first gallery show. Yay!
There will also be works from some wonderful artists - Sija Chen, Matthew G. Craig, Susan Klein, J. Benay Bain Lewis, Preston Shurley, Lindsay Wraga, James Dean Erickson. A motley group of artists from all over the east coast.
