    1. Sometimes we discover something amazing by sheer luck !I have had their pictures in my reference stock for quite some time but felt that they were 'too small'...it was only after some one asked me to do it that I realized their potential :) Thanks Sherry!

  4. Looking at these paintings of yours I realise how cute these animals are. About 30 years back, in school, these hapless animals were provided to us in biology practical classes, to teach us dissection. In retrospection I realise how heartless and thought less we were. Any way, as usual your work is fabulous. Keep painting.

  5. Yes we tend to forget to look closely and admire the beauty of the nature all around us- so busy is everyone.It gives me a great joy that people stop and look at my paintings and feel one step closer to the nature.Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, Asit.
