Another year past me. Where changes, small and large took place. Changes that surprised me, those which i found difficult to grasp. A period where i grew as a person, with new thoughts, varied ideas, and most important, accomodating new faces in my small world.

I've always liked painting. My affection in it perked when i found Mrs. Neela Panch at BVB. Always, standing by me, encouraging me to try out various mediums, explaining her thoughts, the balancing of colours.......

At home, i used MS Paint. Habituated to it, i started it out as a past-time, doodling formed a large chunk in those initial stages. Of late, a new kind of experimentation has begun, with a theme behind most of them. MS Paint and abstract art goes well with each other. Indeed, the difficulty lies in the flexibilty, as working with a mouse is not easy. At times, what i draw might appear senseless, but that is an exception that can be associated with almost anything.The idea, of asking my parents to judge them seems worthless at times, but yes, they have given me valuable suggestions. Some of them may look the same, but the technique appears varied, as i tried explaining it to M.

I have posted some of my works on MS Paint, previously under the tag art (the link's attached). I have posted more of them on Flickr, which appears as a sidebar, below the archives list. One can click on a picture to obtain a larger view of the same. Well, i have recieved various views on my works, i wish the same continues. I hope to add more of my works as time permits.

A new year, a new addition, something lost, a thing gained!

Here's wishing everybody a pleasant new year. Cheers!
