Dark forest was one of the popular paintings of the show. It is different because I have used a different technique for the painting.

This is a 3D painiting created by a technique I learnt from friend and artist Sameena Sherif of EXPRESSIONS Fine Arts - Samewna and her husband Sherif run this school for art lovers of all ages. I was a student of the school and learnt the art of creating 3D effect in oil painitngs.

'Yellow house' and 'Red House' - are in fact my favourites too, because they are townscapes of typical houses of old Pondicherry - my hometown, before marriage. They are buildings of the bygone French era when the French used to rule over the place, and built houses in the French style. Notice the beautiful large French windows, typical of French architecture designed to allow cool sea breeze to enter the house in the evenings.

I was pleasently surprised when a visitor to the show recognised the place (Pondicherry), and went into a description of how she had enjoyed a vacation there. My thoughts went back to my childhood days pleasantly spent at Pondicherry - thoughts loved and cherished for life.


The 'Trinity Acres show has been a learning experience for me. As an artist, I love my creations to be appreciated (understandably!). Appreciation - I got a lot of it, but this time I realized that there were quite a few favourites among the audience, including the children, and seniors alike.
I would like to show a few of them, with the comments I received for each of them.

I am so excited to write about the show that was held at 'Trinity Acres and Woods' community on the 8th and 9th of December 2007. I got to meet a lot of people and got to hear their first hand opinions of my painitngs. There was lots of accolades and appreciation. Many of them wrote on the guest book that I had placed on the table to get written opinions. I was really happy to see young children taking a lot of interest in paintings. They would just run around and observe each painting and finally pick out their favourites and discuss among themselves, oblivious of me. There was a total informal atmosphere and the experience was exhilerating.I had in fact displayed a variety of paintings, not sticking to any style or theme in paticular, because 'Trinity Acres and Woods' is a community comprising of rows of homes, and I guessed that people of all tastes and ages will be visiting my exhibition. I think that I made a good decision, for there was a steady flow of people of all ages and tastes, and I got to meet some local artists also.I am greatful to good friends Yoga and Champa who are such wonderful people. They live in this beautiful community, and had made all arrangements for me. All in all it was a great week end and I wish to thank my friends Yoga and Champa for making the exhibition a reality.
