Day 47 - 51 | "Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love painting simple flowers which are nothing but a few brush strokes and yet are beautiful to look at. Inspired from @ohn_mar_win post. 😁 Also Happy #WorldArtDay to all my friends whose creativity inspires me to paint better! 👏🏽

“Great things never came from comfort zones” -  @theshinynest’s #52quoteschallenge 💕

Brush stroke practice 😁 #abstractart .

Half way point in my #100DaysOfArtWithSiri 👩🏼‍🎨💃🏽 As days are passing by, I am finding harder and harder to make time to create. Lack of motivation is the biggest culprit. 😪 Here’s to hoping I manage to do 50 more pieces before the year ends. ☺️ Do checkout my Stories for a sneak peek of my messy desk. This piece is inspired by @thiswritingdesk’s night sky class on @skillshare.

 I wanted to paint mountains, florals, landscapes and what not. Finally I made a few color blocks with my #sennelieraquarelle watercolor palate and added this week’s #52quoteschallengequote on top. ☺️

Day 42 - 46 | "Life is the art of drawing without an eraser." John W. Gardner

Honest truth: I am not exaggerating when I say art helped me heal, look at the brighter side of life and gave me much needed strength to move forward. Learning to doodle and now watercolor keep me sane and work as my everyday therapy session. Most of the art I make is not even instagram worthy but it helps. I don’t know what made me confess today but if anyone is going through a shitty time like me, remember art can heal. Give it a try.

Thank you for all your loving comments and messages. 😘 It means a lot that you are thinking of me and my well being. ❤️  Love you all and this piece (which I saw on @studio5380 profile) is dedicated to you all. .

Two loves in one art piece - doodling on a purple watercolor background ❤️

Roses 🌹, need I say more?! 😊

Day 32 - 36 | Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. ~ Scott Adams

Prompt 1 of #foxandwatercolourchallenge: LINES | After a crazy week both at home and work fronts, I finally found some quiet time to set up my March bullet journal pages. Check out some behind the scene action for this piece in Stories. 😁 

Prompt 2 of #foxandwatercolourchallenge: RED | .. and I immediately thought of a red door I saw couple of weeks ago. 😁

Prompt 3 of #foxandwatercolourchallenge: YOUR NAME (Siri) | I remember like it is yesterday - when apple released its first iPhone, my FB timeline was filled with so many Siri jokes that I lost count by the end 🙄. Things got a bit better over the years, but even today, I do get occasional smirks at Starbucks and from Uber/Lyft drivers!

Prompt 4 of #foxandwatercolourchallenge: PINK |  Sunday evening mood :-)

Prompt 5 of #foxandwatercolourchallenge: WASH with yellow plus abstract doodles on top. ☺️ Happy Monday y’all.

Day 27 - 31 | “The greatest masterpieces were once only pigments on a palette.” ~ Henry S. Haskins

Day 27 | So, I am in a mandala love phase right now and here is my first attempt. It took me around 3 days to finish but so-worth-it. 😇 day 1 was for the red watercolor background to dry, day 2 for basic structure and day 3 to add details. #moretocome ❤

Day 28 | mandala love continues! 😍

Day 29 | You have the power to say - “This is not how my story will end”. 👊🏼 #notetoself

Day 30 | “Coffee doesn’t ask silly questions. Coffee understands.”☕️

Day 31 | Is it Friday already? 😆 #tuesdaygrind
