My round canvases finally got their due :) when three of my abstracts got accepted for annual show of a govt. art akademy here. Needless to say i was really happy..till i saw what I was against. Some really good work was on the walls there; works that made my knees weak. I could never be that good or creative, I realized and another thing that I realized was that there was no place for whimsy paintings in my city. India is that way still quite orthodox in art. but anyway, i was happy that i got some outlet and my paintings were up there with the works of stalwarts. And that it was a beginning..but again since then I have not been able to paint anything. I keep looking for inspiration but nothing so far to make me feel excited enough to paint. hope I get out of it fast.
