Happy Thanksgiving!

Finally it is here.... that day of the year when we need to pause in our tracks, and bow our heads to a bigger force. Call it anything you want - God, Destiny, Luck, and what have you - but the most beautiful part of Thanksgiving Day is the gratitude associated with it. Gratitude for what life offered you. Gratitude for whatever came your way, big or small. Gratitude for giving you the wisdom to accept it all positively, and rejoice in the happiness it brought.

So today I want to thank each and every one of my patrons, friends, well-wishers and followers for making Creative Rumblings what it is. For giving me the love, confidence and encouragement to carry on with my creative endeavours. For touching my life in a positive way, leaving a smile on my face, and a song in my heart!

Sharing with you all these pictures that say it all...

The bottles bring smiles, and the smiles make my day!

Bottles proudly displayed amongst other favourites at another patron's home!

Thank you all, once again, and may the love and creative interactions grow!

The Watermelon Seller

The festivities are finally over and we are settling back into a saner life. Been a long time since any work got done.... hope that changes now as we fall back into a regular routine.

Winter has definitely arrived, and the woollies are out. But bang in the middle of this I'm reminded of peak summertime, and watermelons. Weird, to say the least.

This was the sight that greeted me everyday in the summers as I walked down to pick my kiddo from the hobby class. Searing noon time heat, sun blazing, washing everything in a piercing yellow-white glare. And suddenly these pops of colour would appear at the turn of the road. Circles of green with occasional reds, and of course, the blue of the tarpaulin. Made for an interesting subject!

Folk Motif Bottles

Dancing peacocks, regal elephants, twittering birdies.... they are all there! Presenting bottles hand-painted with folk motifs and embellished with a dash of glitter for the festive season.

To stock up, write to me at And better hurry up, for I only have a few pieces of these. To see a close-up of the picture above, visit our Facebook page.

Goats And Other Cares

October has been a strange month. Oscillating between caring for sick children and celebrating festivals, to coping with disappointing false starts at work. One of those months where you can't put a finger on where time flew. And on the last day you realise, that even though you tried your best, you haven't achieved much to show! Sometimes the background settings take longer than you realize...

Anyhow, sharing with you this drawing I created a couple of months back. Inspired by goats grazing in an open field in front of our house, tended by shepherds in Rajasthani garb, with bright red turbans.
