Summer Zinnias

Taking care of some unfinished business this week. Started on these zinnias last summer and promptly misplaced the canvas during our move. Was happy to find it safe and snug inside the canvas box. I dedicated this weekend to finish the painting. Now if I can only find the groove to finish the Venice painting that I started 4 years ago :).

Christmas Carousel

Each year during holiday season, San Jose downtown is transformed into a holiday fantasy with Christmas decorations, carnival rides and glittering lights. Like every resident of Bay area, we are regulars at the event. I have a hard time focusing on one thing there. But the carousel always gets me - happy kids riding the horses without a care, parents waving & clicking their camera or just enjoying their short break from their kids. It's one of those "I wish I was a kid moment" for me. And here is my attempt to bring out my inner-child, the Christmas Carousel..

Milpitas Paintings

Helloo.. Yes, I am alive and well. Sorry for going MIA the last couple of months from the blog. Competing priorities in life, but I have been painting steadily. Just couldn't find time to take proper photos and share it here. Wanted to share with you few paintings that I have done to celebrate my little city Milpitas turning 60 years. Golden Hills Art association ( that I am part of) along with Milpitas camera club are displaying their artwork at Milpitas library until October 25th.
