HOME AND GARDEN - AN ACRYLIC PAINTING





Here is one of my favorite acrylic paintings...
from my older acrylic collections...

Here I tried to capture in my canvas
a calm and cosy cottage with 
flowerbeds bursting with a riot of colorful blooms...

The misty background and the frosty faraway trees
always attracted me and held me in their spell...

What I liked more about this little house is the warmth 
and comfort and security it symbolises...

The not so well manicured lawns...the unruly flowery hedges,
the naturally formed path...and hazy backdrop -

they all stand so much away from today's 
plastic surroundings and cities that I live in..

(let me be honest- I copied this work
(and changed here and there)
from a spread in a magazine...)

Looking at this painting intensely for a few minutes
help me relax and I am transported to a different 
world...that is a stark contrast from this
hot,humid,dusty,unruly concrete jungle where I live...

How I wish to live in this dream house 
which is devoid of city noises,tensions and pollution!

May be it is just a pipe dream for me
but at least this painting gives me instant escape...

I worked with Acrylic paints which 
I prefer to the conventional oil paints...
as they are much easier to handle,less messy
and dries up much faster too...
