True Blue

Watercolor on paper
15" X 22"

"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him."

'Flowers on stairs'
Watercolor on paper

'With a flower'
I hide myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too --
And angels know the rest.

I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness.

- Emily Dickinson

The daisy follows soft the sun
Emily Dickinson

The daisy follows soft the sun,

And when his golden walk is done,
Sits shyly at his feet.
He, waking, finds the flower near.
"Wherefore, marauder, art thou here?"
"Because, sir, love is sweet!"

We are the flower, Thou the sun!
Forgive us, if as days decline,
We nearer steal to Thee, --
Enamoured of the parting west,
The peace, the flight, the amethyst,
Night's possibility!

Modern Opticals in Old Delhi (Watercolors on paper) 15" x 22"
This is about optical dichotomy of an old Delhi street, modernised old Delhi and the Modern Opticals, all the shops are 'Modern Opticals' whatever they might be selling. A once beautiful old building with ornate lamp posts has modernised posts now. All said and done, Old Delhi is full of life and its colors. Delhi carries the sun and the moon, the day and the night and every possible dichotomy in its womb. May  be there lies her beauty and romance.
