April showers bring May flowers (poem)

Earlier when it rains I used to remember you,Now when I miss you it rains.

Of Both human and non-human,
Nature is unpredictable.

They say,
April showers bring May flowers.

And I say,May flowers come from April showers.

I ponder... (poem)

When I got you I realized the fear of losing you;When I lost you I realized the joy of getting you.

Everytime in my dreams when I meet you;
They are the only moments left where I can be with you.

I’v got the wisdom I’ve got the essence;
Everywhere I can feel the glory of your presence.

Now that my sun is gone my moon is gone;
I realize the gravity of life and how it moves on.

“Tath-agata Tatha-gata” (painting)

“Tath-agata Tatha-gata”
(Thus come, Thus gone)

I started working with oils on mother’s day - 8th may. Mom used to do oils so I thought of giving her a homage by doing something with oils.

I am using oils for the first time and I had no idea how to use them. I browsed lots of videos and referred to dummies book and finally thought of working on something simple. I started with buddha.. jus like that!! And I called her at night with some doubts (complicated at least for me): “I have turpentine, I have linseed and I have tube colors. How shall I start painting? Am I suppose to use oil with colors just like we use water with water colors?” We had pretty interesting discussion. And I started with background shade with blue.

Initial Buddha in painting appeared more like “Avatar”. It was all blue. Next layer I managed to fix the skin shade. Added yellow halo at back. I used more oil with color so it took 4 days to dry up completely. Third layer I added some highlighting shades of white. Day before yesterday I came to know that on Tuesday its Buddha Poornima and we have a holiday. So I thought of finishing it by tonight. Its actually morning now, 4:35 AM. The paint is still wet and will take some more days to dry up.

Check out the attached pic !

This is somewhat depicting buddha + poornima (full moon) .. I realized when I completed :D

Got next canvas of double size .. lets see what comes up next … I dunno what but it will be something different am sure :D

And yes I wont be continuing with oils for long I am catching headache with smell of turpentine and linseed :(

Happy Buddha Poornima (17th May ‘11)

Does the thought you are now thinking take you where you want to go?

If not, what thought would?

Zindagi ek khayal hai?
Yaan khayal ki talaash hai?

Life is a thought?
Or a search for a thought?
