Back blogging

I had been sketching and painting (not a regular practice but as well as it can be while caring for an infant), but I haven’t blogged in a long long time. Part of the reason was paucity of time (you know, pregnancy, birth of our baby girl, and caring for the said baby :-)), another part of it was being disheartened and disappointed in my art. Times like these, it is wonderful to have encouraging friends who cheer you along, make suggestions but most importantly just be there. Thanks to Suhita for encouraging me to be gentle with myself, keep things simple and mostly importantly share my work.

Today I was able to sneak out for a couple of hours to sketch in our neighborhood. I got myself a coffee and settled down to sketch.

I did the obligatory coffee sketch to get warmed up.


Followed that by a few sketches of vignettes from the neighborhood. Here is one.


Okay, admittedly, this is not much of a blog post, but it is a start. See you all tomorrow!
