This painting "In the Wilderness" is an original acrylic painting on unstretched artist canvas (Fredrix Canvas Pad) of archival quality, medium texture, size 12" x 16". This painting is in bright and vibrant colours, bringing warmth and cheerfulness to the surrounding space. It is fully hand painted and no paper has been pasted for the "collage look". The painting is on canvas sheet and requires framing.
I draw and paint intuitively and spontaneously, moving from chaos and void to order, balance and rhythm. I go with the flow, painting only something that I connect to, or something that comes from deep within. For me, art is like meditation and music. It blocks out all negativities and pressures, putting me in a state of “flow” (as Mihaly stated). I love to create using lines and bright, bold colours, often combining them as mixed media. I like to work with the “collage feel” even while painting.
I love to create using lines and bright, bold colours, often combining them as mixed media. I enjoy drawing and painting freehand, where every freehand action, every mark created, leads to the next one, and next, creating a poetry with lines, a story in rhythm. The bright, vibrant colours and free-flowing lines of Mithila/Madhubani art of my native place also inspire me.
