Bye Bye Fall!

As colour and vibrancy give way to chill and stillness, sharing some last pictures of Fall this year! 

White Winter lurks just around the corner to envelope the Earth and force inhabitants into hibernation. We had snow shower yesterday.

 It is lovely to watch sublime beauty shrouding herself in white mystery! Saluting the ever changing Nature!

Bar Girl and More!

A visit to the awe inspiring Marine Art Museum at Winnona, Minnesota charmed the artist in me. Who knew a small wayside museum would hold grand artistic splendors created by masters such as Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet…!!!

 I was fortunate to be the first one to admire some recently added exhibits, informed an assistant curator. I marveled and oohed and aahed over the visual delights all around me. 

The visit filled me with a passion to create, leading me on to paint the bar girl (impressionism, above) using water color for the first time. I also went on to draw two sketches. 


A Marilyn Monroe like beauty!


A girl next door!

The artistic frenzy has still not left me and I guess I will have to create more to get over it.  

The Winona Marine Art Museum, situated along the scenic Mississipi river has left me inspired and wowed! I bought an amazing book on Impressionism. Will write more about it sometime soon. This last one by Morisot is an exhibit at the museum.


I highly recommend a visit if you live around!

White Holi!

While the vibrant spring festival, Holi is being celebrated with colours all over the world, we are having a different kind of Holi here in Minnesota (USA). Nature has chosen to shower us with snow today, making it a wonderful White Holi for us!

Earth has got covered up with a sheet of white.


A lone fitness enthusiast dared to venture out!

Snow, snow everywhere!


Footprints in the snow as pedestrians hurried by….


Trees huddled together, waiting for the arrival of spring! 

BTW, have a super duper, colourful Holi!
