     I am a cityite. My childhood memories include the green valleys of My Grandparents village in Coorg Dist. and in South Kannara Dist. ,Two beautiful sleepy villages in the State of Karnataka in India.

     Beautiful Serene Valley of Coorg has some amazingly beautiful picturesque locations especially Talkaveri where the river Cavery originates and My Mother’s village has a Sangama of three rivers i.e three rivers meet to flow as one thereon. My maternal Grandfather's house which had a beautiful Rose garden in the front and "the Well" nearby. The house is surrounded by trees all around and has a river flowing by. And the distant mountains which are visible thro' the trees....

     Whereas Father’s village has the open paddy fields, The images of the farmer ploughing , directing the Oxen thro' the field , all the while uttering encouraging words which has a high pitched resonance effect to it, Or the women working in the fields singing with their rustic voices is still fresh in my mind. The different stages of paddy growing in the fields has the spectrum of colour moving from brown to green to yellow. And then there was my Grandfather's Big House with a big Swing where we spent some happy moments. I also remember spending the afternoons sitting on a window sill or the teakwood cot placed near the window at the back of the house enjoying the tremendous afternoon breeze blowing thro' and watching the paddy grass in the fields swaying joyfully and hearing the leaves of the big trees rustle......

     Being a cityite ..wanting to get nature inside my house … My paintings are usually about nature and her beauty ... I try to capture what I see….. but my digital paintings are also a little more about what I feel …

So I went about trying to capture Nature on My Canvas

......like a Kid trying to capture the butterflies in his net.........

     I have enjoyed painting these scapes so-much that I wonder at God's joy at creating the world and us. And having created us, is He disappointed in us for destroying his world in the name of progress ?????


is He indulging us like parents do of their favorite child ????.....

Just a thought…..

     I don’t like to paint a gloomy picture cause there is too much gloominess in our world and I feel art should liven our lives ....…..
