Hi there!

Absolutely nothing beats the joy of watching water colours play on paper from the touch of a brush in my hand. I have and always will enjoy painting even though it sometimes takes me ages to get into the momentum of painting. ‘Scribbles and Splashes’ is a blog that I once began when I wanted to let go of the pent-up urge to splash with water colours and share pictures and the behind-the-scenes thoughts with my family sitting kilometres away from me. Over the years, it has been dormant for months (nearing a year and sometimes even more such as when motherhood beckoned!) and then been active in fits and starts.

Mid-2013 is when I feel like looking into the mirror and declaring this as “The Moment” that this becomes the year of the revival and flourish of ‘Scribbles and Splashes’, the blog and its growth into a self-sufficient near-full-time engagement for me.

I thrive in art. Period. If I could, that’s all that I would do all day long. It seems like a distant dream right now, but this is where I start playing around with a wish and seeing how it takes shape. I’m splashing, I’m scribbling about it and I’m becoming “an artist”. From exactly right now.

I've been writing notes to myself since January 1995 - that's when 'that old blank diary' metamorphosed to become 'my dear diary'. Retrospective browsing through these yellowed pages has often granted me an introspectively distant view of the various nadirs and the zeniths, apices and acmes, apogees and perigees (and the interwoven ebbs and flows). While writing has in itself been cathartic, enjoyable, engrossing, relaxing, relieving and exciting at various times, it's the joy of re-reading these notes and thus reliving some of those emotions that makes me break into a warm smile each time.

I've never felt the need to blog, therefore. I write to myself as and when I want to talk to myself - sometimes multiple times in a day, sometimes only once a fortnight. So why am I here? Simply put... While my diary continues to be my sounding-board and confiding pillow, this blog will be my scribble-pad and squirt-canvas.
