We all are like soap bubbles as well! Some big some small, all made of the same matter, all shine in same yet different ways, all take their own random direction that cannot be exactly predicted and in the end, sooner or later, all are destined to vanish.

This 1965 musical drama is one of my most fav movies and was inspired by a real family of Captain Baron von Trapp, an Austro-Hungarian Navy officer.
Christopher Plummer (born December 13, 1929) is a Canadian actor and is the oldest person ever to win an Academy Award for acting.

This sketch is my first work with ‘Faber Castell Polychromos’, I used ‘Staedtler Luna’ before that. The shades in Polychromos are different than those in Luna. I took me some time to pick ones suitable for skin tones. However, as these are oil based, these blend easily and do not pose the issue of ‘wax bloom’.

Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ is one of my favorite fiction works. The protagonist, Miss Bathsheba Everdene is a proud and independent woman who comes across as inspiring as well. This is also an important feminist character in English literature. This portrait is of British actress Carey Mulligan who played Bathsheba’s character in the movie based on this novel (by the very same name).

This quick abstract art is done in Wax Crayons. I got this thought today morning while waking up. Here I have tried to state that Lord Shiva rules the whole cosmos and five elements that make up life namely Sky, Earth, Fire, Air and Water (respectively) are within Shiva. That is, Lord Shiva is time itself, the embodiment of all seen and unseen, concrete and abstract, light and dark, entire universe and all life. He is everywhere, in everything and in all elements. He is a symbol of peace and selflessness, a hermit who lives a Spartan existence, far away from all desires but gives everything to those who revere Him and stay on the morally right path.
