We are a family of art lovers! 🙂 Not serious art aficionados in a strict sense but we love to create/dabble in art. A large part of my childhood vacations were occupied with drawing, painting. I would then randomly showcase my creations on the walls. Mom was always very encouraging and never stopped me from putting up stuff on the walls 🙂

I mostly dabbled in water colours on paper. Later on, sis 2 learnt nib painting during her college days and I picked it up from her. We made a couple of paintings and they adorn the walls at dad’s home. With the kids, colouring and painting become a fun activity that they loved! Lots of drawing, colouring , painting over the years 🙂 It is still a favourite past time for Ammu. She now loves to browse, and draws inspiration from the world wide web!

More recently, sis 2 took up painting on glass, glass bottles specifically. This love became active again after a spell of dormancy! Glass, paints and other stuff were duly purchased and the kids and she came up with a few paintings on glass. Yet to be framed… here are the pics..

Sketches! Ammu loves making sketches these days.. We’re quite in awe 🙂

Hoping this happy, colourful, artsy streak stays alive and keeps us alive to the sheer joy of creating! 🙂
