Artist... in the house - 2

If you barge in without a brief knock, in to the topsy-turvy muddled room with a teen, who is  busy collecting her thoughts and cranking loud on ‘Drake’ songs; you are precisely in my artistically engaged daughter’s room. The 17 years old, who exists in her own world surrounded by squiggly scribbly paint tubes and palette filled with sequence of color, is our proud artist of the home.

You will never find any precise clues to measure the craziness of our oddball.  When colors start to flow, nothing matters to her, she travels to her own artistic beats. She is gifted of seeing beyond ordinary by building solid layers of paint. Her current vacation life is copiously focused in working tirelessly and energetically in putting her innate talented art into making master pieces. She is highly enticed by the elephantine countenance of big pot bellied GANESHA, just like us. Hence, her almost all creations evolve around his different "avatar".
Artist: Pushti

I had to twist her arm (teenagers, I tell ya) to write up few words for her own creations, I managed for few and rest I had to end up writing but here we are. Join me as I rejoice the pleasure to share the part -2.
Mirror worked "Ganesha" with lotus.
 Ganesha and lotus go hand in hand in this pictures. A lotus flower always looks clear and pure beneath the murky waters. Just like that, the lotus in this painting is a strong symbol of beauty beneath darkness, which is represented by the black background. the Ganesha sits in the middle of the lotus as he is the god of new opportunities and luck. In my opinion, I feel like it is important to be bold and stand out in darkness when given a new opportunity.
 
Hibicus headed "Ganesha"
 This painting is a remake of a wonderful artist "Kruti". This specifically caught my eye because of the contrast of blue and orange against the black. It was a great pop of color. Moving on, the orange flower resembles "Ganesha's" crown and I felt like it was a unique choice to use a hibiscus as they are tropical and the most beautiful flowers in Carribbean. This one is my absolute favorite.

"Ganesha" on Lotus
The painting originally was supposed to be an outline of "Ganesha" but once I saw the salmon color in my paint box I knew it had to be used. The simplistic image on "Ganesha" really embodies how powerful his power is. The flower at the bottom makes it seem like he is emerging from the petals which I feel gives a strong pop of color and resembles how "Ganesha" is everywhere from nature to family.


Chakra "Ganesha"

This colorful piece was really fun to paint and is something that I look forward to doing again. The colors I used as a wash for the background is to resemble the "chakras" the one inside us. I see them as vibrant and beautiful and I just wanted that to be expressed on my canvas.


Mirrored peacock
Just like the tranquil creature, I wanted for this painting to capture how beautiful and timeless a peacock always looks. The feathers contain the typical mix of a natural peacock color plus gold to symbolize "old is gold". No matter how many years these creatures have been around, their looks never go unnoticed. Small detail of mirror work need to add some dimension in the background and feathers.  

As I take you onwards for these last pieces: 

Color Stroked "Ganesha"
Her creative spirit is deeply rooted with the art but when teenage life triggers the mood swings and particular creative thoughts flow, signature piece like this particular "Ganesha" takes place. As a result of her vision and courage to think differently, we see new master pieces being built in no time. This one is her first piece officially sold.   

Ekdanta "Ganesha"

This Ganesha is a thoughtful gift for her very dear friend. With her inner edit button and lots of artistic potential she easily gives bare canvas a splash of wonderful colours. Our heart goes out for the eyes of her every creation. The soulful eyes evoke the peacefulness in every piece.

Aum "Ganesha"

When I was about to publish the post, a new creation was formed overnight and I had to include it. For most of her creations, she shakes her world all night long, just as this Ganesha was created by burning the midnight oil to complete. Though, final pay off is amazing.



For now, she is completely stirring the excitement of 'escape' phase of life. She managed to squeeze in one last piece with very much detailed work just few days before she embark on a new journey. 

If you haven not had a peek in part -1, head right here to read all about it.

As I conclude the post, artist in the house is all set for her new chapter of university lifestyle. We are about to dive in to the empty nest syndrome which will end the early journey of our parenthood. With the pressing ache of separation we will be sending the young adult to start the new phase of her life. without her glamour in the home, things will not be the same but we both are happy to see out little girl shining brightly.
Hope you all enjoyed this colorful journey with us. Do take a moment to pour in your thoughts here or facebook page. Until we meet again, toodles.

  4. I have gone through the minuteness and nitty gritty of the subject pictures. I must say all of them are remarkable and are demanding lots of patience and understanding and attentiveness. Which is very well demonstrated here. Keep up the good work and god bless always.
