Lady on the wall. Looking for forms and unexpected surfaces for my ladies, where they fit like they were meant to be. This one is on a beautifully layered wall, found and captured on my travels to San Juan. The work mixes a photo, gouache work, and digital line drawing. #cestmoiasha#newyork#artoftheday#morningvibes#nature#artanddesign
I think its time i introduce myself🙂. I am a wife and a mommy .. and a full time artist. I have been painting for quite a few years but i decided to go public with my paintings last year... and its been quite a happy journey so far!! I cannot recount when but sometime few years ago painting everyday became my life. I am based in india and a lot of what i have seen and enjoyed during my childhood can be seen in my paintings, with a bit of mythological touch at times . I love sharing my daily dose of art and life on instagram .I am very grateful to god for giving me a life where i can pursue my dreams . 🙂🙂

A modernist of the generation of Bombay progressives, Satish Gujral has been a ceaselessly inventive artist. Born (1925) in Jhelum, in undivided India Satish Gujral is our artist in focus today.
The work is utterly imposing in its presence, the large sculpture depicts a devi. She is a totemic, square-blocked form, from her shoulders and along her sides and arms. Her eyes are made of two circular objects, recalling discarded industrial suction pads. Gujral’s nod to tantra comes through the prominent attention given to her two pointed breasts, the arresting centre of her form made of projecting metal prisms, and her sacred yoni rendered with the hexagon formed of the union of the male and female principles.
||Sunday Story|| I don't know who made this beautifully sketched (almost close to the actual) rendition of a personal photograph of mine, but someone did.
I'd heard of Fan Art and fan mails (gotten a few tbh) but this artwork and the written words that came in today by the same person (who I am featuring today) literally just blew me away.
Thank you so much, to whoever you are. I really hope you wouldn't have kept yourself anonymous though, but yeah, thank you so so much for this beautiful artwork and the absolutely amazingly beautiful and heart touching poem.
I'm honesty touched. ♥️ ___________________________________________________________
At her leisure, she's taking her time,
Convincing herself, she’s better than red wine
Promising herself, she won’t ever get hurt
Reminding herself, she’s here to get served
Born in this world to rule than be ruled
Making her own rules, screw societal rules
Unafraid to live her dreams to the depths of hell
You think she’s a bitch? Go fuck yourself!! Her mind, body, soul and heart
How you wish, you get all in an apple cart
She’s the drug, she’s the weed
You know she’s all you’ll ever need.
She's the girl of your dreams
But fortunately unfortunately, she's not yours, never yours, never nobody's
"People moving all the time
Inside a perfectly straight line
Don't you wanna curve away?
When it's such…
It's such a perfect day
It's such a perfect day."

13 Reasons Why (2017)
Developed by Brian Yorkey "13 Reasons Why" a.k.a. "Th1rteen R3asons Why" is a Netflix TV show adapted from a book by Jay Asher. High school student Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) committed suicide two weeks prior - something which leaves her family devastated as there is seemingly no reason why she'd take her own life. While trying to cope with the loss, fellow student Clay Jensen (Dylan Minette) receives a box of audiotapes, recorded by Hannah. There are 13 recordings, each concerning one person / an incident that caused Hannah's suicide. Through the 13 episodes of Season 1 of this show, we get to piece together Hannah's story.
The show is well made and received critical acclaim for how it dealt with themes such as suicide, depression and sexual abuse. While at times the show does get quite dark, I felt that some of the things that happen to the character weren't reasons enough to commit suicide (high school kids can be really nasty to others). Maybe that was the point - to tell us that you never know how your actions would affect others. Nevertheless, I thought it was engaging and I watched all the episodes in the span of a few days. The acting was good, and I liked the use of colour tones to differentiate events happening in the present (a cold bluish tint) and those in the past (a warm brown tint, more saturated image). I drew Katherine Langford as Hannah Baker. This was done in pencil (red parts were done in colour pencil) and scanned.
