I hope you will enjoy the new look and do some shopping along with it.

- Mandala : round designs with lot’s of patterns and colors
- Patterns : name says it all. Doesn’t it 🙂
I hope you like and enjoy them as my old posts, as there will be more in future.
I have no idea, why it is so hard to accept the status of Artist. Drawing was my hobby since i can remember. My father had even once joined me in a drawing class in summer vacations when i was kid, which i think only lasted for 2-3 days. After that life happened. Studies, Job …. made it impossible to draw anything.
Professionally, i am a software engineer. But currently i am not working. After marriage and no work, i started to draw. Initially, it was one drawing per day but later it changed to 1 – 2 drawing per day, depending on the speed and size of the work. Now a days, it is again impossible to draw even 1 drawing after having a kid. But i still try.
After lots of encouragement from friends and family members, i thought of opening shops to sell my art online. But i still can’t say that i am an artist. I don’t know why… maybe because
- i fear what my relatives might think of me or my art (as professionally i am a software engineer)
- being a self-taught artist is not good enough
- nobody would understand or like my work
What do you think? Is my fear reasonable or pointless?
I’m starting lots of new things this year. It’s a late start but it is a small step forward.
First start is “Facebook”. Facebook page for business use. I am not a big social media user; I’d rather work on drawing/painting. But now anyone anywhere can share artwork and find people who appreciate what they are doing. It sure makes making art more fun! I have people from all over the world giving me thumbs up and likes which I really appreciate. Because of which, i think having a Facebook page is necessary for both business point of view and to keep in touch with people.
Another new start is a website. Again for a professional front. As a novice, i am trying to keep everything simple and easy to use which I’m sure, will evolve as i learn and improve.
This blog will be a spot for me to write or share others work about art – which could include anything really relating to hand-drawn drawing or digital one. Or just on some random subject which i would like to share a view point on.
To anyone who has read this far, thanks a lot!
