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.

Snow-flakes catcher

The valley's been misty in the morning and chilly in the late evenings. Winter's slowly creeping in - almost unnoticed. We've taken out our thickest, snuggest blankets and all I can think of are the Pine trees in Shimla's snow-laden landscape. Here's a toast to the swirls of branches that balance porous snow and look upon the city!


  1. Really luv the painting :) - Ashwin(chayanika's frnd)

  2. Thanks Ashwin - the piece did not earn very many grins from my end, so now that it does from you, it and the painter (hehe) owe you a bigger bow in gratitude than you expected!
