A hectic week, Holi festivities, and the kids' exams have all conspired to keep me away from the beloved blog. Not that I'm complaining, especially not about the 'hectic' bit. The city is awash in the colours of Spring and I was lucky enough to catch a flower show, and a couple of visits to parks. Essential to charge my creative batteries! All those blooms give me enough fodder to last through the dry summers. So don't be surprised if you see me painting a lot of florals in the coming weeks.
I don't know the name of these pretty pink blossoms but I remember seeing a tree laden with them in early winters. Not a leaf in sight, just a floral mesh against the clear blue sky. Have just tried to capture that scene in this painting. Hope I'm able to bring out that effect.
