Watercolor study
Old Lady with Red Hat
14"x11"
I am getting a little rusty, after a long time spent without painting...life feels empty even as I am busy with a lot of things..just because there has been no painting!
This is a study to begin all over again...I hope you all are doing good...

Restless

Restless, watercolor and pastels on paper
12"x 14"
I am posting after a long time today and its not in a very cheerful state of mind.This Saturday I received a very sad news of a dear friend having died untimely in a road accident.I painted to divert my mind and to ward off the tears that evening.They still threaten to roll down, every now and then , as I think of him.I had known him for 20 years.I would describe him as a restless soul, naive,a man-child,trying to fit in the world as it outsmarted him in so many ways.He couldn't achieve what he aspired for and many people considered him a loser.Not everyone gets the golden pot at the end of the rainbow.I liked him despite all those flaws and he cared about me.Thats all I know.I want to remember him as the friend who would lighten up my evening whenever we met, who would laugh and sing songs that he wrote himself. 
May be he is better off in another world..
Thanks for listening.
