Cityscape: Flatiron, Colorado

We lived in the Westminster-Broomfield area of Denver, Colorado in 2004. One of our most favourite places to visit during our stay there was the Flatiron shopping area in Broomfield.

It was a large area having outlets of some of the biggest brands, but more importantly, it was the scenic location that made it such a pleasure to visit. Vast open spaces, landscaped greens, the Zip shuttle and sunny days with deep blue skies made it a stunning vista.

This painting is my ode to those lovely days. I have taken the setting from a combination of two of my pictures taken in the shopping district.

Let me have your comments on this one.

Lonely Lady With Her Flowers

One fine morning this picture just flashed in my head. Even as I painted it, I held a long debate with myself about showing this piece... mainly because it resonates with my personal situation. On any given weekday, after the hubby and kids have left for office and school respectively, I am left alone with my flowers for company.

And then this picture also identifies with the condition of womankind in general (especially in India) - always waiting passively. Maybe surrounded by beauty, luxury, and comfort but unable to share it with anyone when she wants, as she is left alone. I have tried to capture this situation in this painting titled Lonely Lady With her Flowers. Hope it brings out all that it is supposed to portray.

I shall post the third painting - another cityscape - in a day or so. Do come back to check that one out. Meanwhile, hope you all are having a good weekend!

Blue Ginger

I know I've been away from the blog for long (changing weather and resultant sniffles are to be blamed) but the good part is that I'm back with three new pieces of artwork.

This first one is based on a picture I came across while surfing. The picture looked fabulous but I feel my paints couldn't bring out the same effect. Anyhow, here's a peek into my rendition of the blue ginger flower.

Come back tomorrow to see the second one!
