Art Blog: Faith

faith low res

Let Go. Let God. Isn’t that what faith is all about? Knowing that no matter what happens, He is there for you, He has a master plan for you. In the end, you know you will land on your two feet, but you gotta have ‘faith, faith, faith’ 🙂

I read somewhere that the phrase “do not be afraid” is written in the Bible 365 times. That it is a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless. Isn’t that all about letting your faith be bigger than your fears? How does it get even more amazing than that? 🙂

I used charcoal to create this abstract portrait on paper.

Art Blog: The Day God Went Dancing With Me

dancing with God low resLast weekend, I was really feeling low and feverish, and all I wanted to do was stay in my bed, huddled under the covers. But it was a close friend’s birthday … someone who has stuck by me through thick and thin. I literally remember at around 12 pm talking to God and saying, “ok dude up there, we have to get up and go. I am going partying, dancing, drinking because this friend means a lot to me, and you gotta help me through this cuz I ain’t feeling sick or feverish or low through his bday celebrations. You do what You do best!”.

And I got up, showered, got dressed and landed up for the party. And boy did we enjoy, laugh, eat amazing food, dance, laugh a lot more 🙂 Took lots and lots of photographs. Somewhere around the evening, he took this pic of me dancing, with the sun setting in the background and reflections on the sea.

I posted it up, and a friend pointed out that an angel was dancing with me! The setting sun’s rays actually formed an angel on the waves of the sea! At that point I KNEW God had gone dancing with me that day. He had done what He did best … He took care of me and ensured I had an absolutely incredible time.

Now how does it get even more AMAZING than this? 🙂

This artwork was done using Charcoal on Paper.

Art Blog: Sam’s Ganesha

image

A friend of mine has always been attracted to the energy of Ganesha. She wanted a contemporary Ganesha for her home based on one of my earlier works.

I had a completely different look in my mind when I started creating this Ganesha. I visualized the colors to be subtle and softer. As I kept working, I was messaging her the work in progress. But her 9 year old daughter Sam wanted something different!

She told me how and which colors she wanted, and where on the canvas she wanted them. She described the intensity of the colors. As I kept listening and visualizing her input, I realised the gift kids have to better what we do – if we only listened and took their opinions into our lives, rather than thinking ‘we know better!’. I loved her inputs because I promise you this painting looks so vibrant because of her honest thoughts and feedback. It has her fun energy, her little visualizations.

As parents and adults, we should keep an open mind to what these little amazing souls tell us, what they bring to our attention. Their minds are free of restructions, their dreams know no limits, their talents are incredible. Please lets not box them into what we believe, lets give them the wings and freedom to be who they are truly meant to be!

Thank you Sam 🙂 this your Ganesha. May He shower your life with lots of love, luck and happiness xxx
