I have been struck by the painting/drawing bug lately. The sudden surge in my interest in it is directly proportional to how bored I am in life right now. Anyways, this time, I tried by hand at a Warli painting. This is actually a form of tribal art that originated in Maharashtra and Gujarat. I had once seen a woman on tv do it and I found it fascinating that you could depict so much through simple geometrical figures. It is basic, simple and clean art. In this particular painting, I have tried to depict a scene from a village. I loved it so much on paper that I even decided to transfer it on to one of my sister's tea cups. :)

Ok, this is going to be my second attempt at blog revival! And, considering the fact that I have way too much free time at hand now, I think it might work. 
Anyways...updates about me: I have completed my Masters in Industrial Psychology and I am in the job market right now. I am a tad stressed out because the American economy has tanked which makes it very difficult for a fresher to find a job. But, I have decided to channelise the stress and frustration to pursue my other interests in life, art being one of them.
So, last Sunday afternoon, I made a trip to Michaels and bought myself some art supplies, primarily water colour and spent the rest of the evening painting. It came out rather amateurish because I held a paint brush after almost 10 years, but I am proud of it nonetheless.
