At Peace

"idhe naguvaa manadaa chanda"(This is the beauty of a laughing heart!)
Whether the translation is apt or not I am in that state of mind. I have been listening to this Ilayaraja song and I can't stop. I crave for more and the result is that I have heard it around 25 times since yesterday, may be more than that...I have lost count!!! Pure bliss!!!
It's from the 1983 movie, Pallavi Anupallavi. Singer: my all time favourite, S.Janaki.

This is in Kannada (language of one of the Southern states,Karnataka), not my mother-tongue but love it all the same. I have fond childhood memories of Bengaluru where I spent a good part. This song portrays a wonderful mother-son relationship and is a really happy song. There's so much of love and affection in it.

I can not vouch whether you will feel the same but do give it a try :) Please do let me know whether it is working.




Well, on that musical note I am posting two my earlier works from 2012. This was for Emerging Artists which happens every year in Dubai. It's part of a series of 8 paintings. I couldn't post it earlier as that was not to be done during the period. 

I love abstracts particularly for their intuitive nature. There's nothing pre-planned, everything happens as we go from one stage to another. It is a kind of meditative state and the inner exploration is more, personally for me. There is a kind of smooth flow, a drift which is completely positive. I almost always love the results it offers. There is also so much of energy flowing through you and if you have some such song/music to accompany...it's entirely divine!!!

How would you like your creative juices to flow???

The Madhubani illustration below happened during my vacation in Dubai in April this year. It's from my first Daler & Rowney A5 sketchbook. 'She' is at peace with herself...just like me when I am listening to melodies :) I would love the night, the full moon, the breeze and some absolutely divine music! A perfect environment!


Linking it to Eva & Kristin's PPF and IF.

I would love to hear from you...please do leave your feedback. 
Thanks for coming over and enjoy your stay :)

Thanks for sharing the video dear Deepa, though I could not get a word of it - I found the music transmitting a joy and the bond shared by the mother-son was a delight to watch as well. Brilliant illustrations, I can relate to your last one, just like you. :)

I like both your paintings, especially the second one. The intricate drawing is fascinating too. Blessings!

It was nice to see the love of the mother and son even though I could not understand the words and the music was unusual for me. I prefer lower notes but since you grew up with that type, I'm sure it had a positive effect on you. I love the piece you did that had red, green and yellow. Very beautiful.
