Capsicum Study

Didn't I tell you the kitchen has some rather tempting options to paint! Well, here is one of my favourites... I love capsicums (green peppers), and they were a natural choice as they lay waiting to be chopped and cooked.

Painted this one with watercolors, and outlined using charcoal.

Wanna eat some? :)

Birds Of Paradise

Okay, so that was a false alarm.... April isn't turning out so bad after all and I am able to get some work done. So, here is a peep into one of the florals I did earlier this month. Birds of paradise straight from California!

It is amazing how these flowers grow in every nook and cranny in sunny California, while back here in India they sell at an astounding price per stick.

Hope all my lovely readers out there are having a creative start to the summer! :)

Tomato Trio

Hubby gets home tomatoes from the market with their green caps on.... and I spot a juicy subject right away!!

Loved working on this tomato trio. And believe me, this one really looks better upfront. In fact am now thinking of doing a kitchen series... the kitchen can do with some dressing up! :)

On another note, April is my fav month (me being an April-born). But since I am in the middle of a transition so posts may be few and far between this month. Of course that doesn't stop me from working.... so I'll be back with loads of new stuff to share! Meanwhile, you keep those creative juices flowing.

Saying It With Flowers

Inspired by the rangoon creeper, this commissioned bottle was given away as a farewell gift.

A regular bouquet would wilt in a few days but not this pretty bunch.

The original flowering creeper...

...And my version of it.

Now only if I could capture the heady fragrance of this lovely creeper, but have to be happy with just the look and feel.

But I'm glad the bottle was liked by the recepient of this floral farewell, and is likely to travel overseas.
