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.

The Afternoon...

I'm not sure why I made this painting. There wasn't a tree with crimson flowers anywhere in the vicinity of my painting table. There wasn't a fence. And if I remember clearly, the day I painted it, it was cloudy, not as sunny as this!
It was an afternoon when I wished there to be sun and wanted those yellowed trees to magically blossom into their floral version that they had been, not so long. I lost patience with the underlying shadows and there isn't any attention to detail. There wasn't meant to be. As simple as that. I wanted some colour to a rather overcast afternoona nd this happened to be how. Period.
