"I won I won" and some Monsoon art!

I won I won. Yes, I won a fabulous Mish Mash cushion cover on Emreen's giveaway! I am picking the dreamer cushion, I just love it. What a perfect accessory it will be in my painting studio....the place where I usually dream and get lost in thought!


Thanks Emreen!

So speaking of studios.....I was completely taken by this photo I blogged about in my last post. The composition, the colors, the subject....all were utterly beautiful. I felt this uncontrollable urge to paint it....


And so I did exactly that over the last 2-3 days. This was just the impetus I needed to shake off my summer stupor and get back to the easel....

Take a look.....










So here they are - the inspiration on the left and my version of it on the right.

Lovely painting..how long did it take to finish it?

Kamini said...

Thank you all. Shweta...it took me a total of about 5-6 hrs, a couple of hours each day on Sun, Monday and Tuesday. Still have some last minute touching up to do after it completely dries, highlights,details...about half hour's work!

Kamini, congrats on the win. The painting is gorgeous, beautiful in its simplicity-love it!

Thanks for you kind words about my home on Prismma too. The carpet you liked is a Zapotec Indian rug from Mexico, hand woven by Isaac Vasquez...we found him just before he became world famous:):)
