Art - Flowers with vase (Still life)

Hello everyone!!

     Hope you all doing fine. Not getting much time to paint now. But painted this one, oil on canvas, this week.

Flowers with vase, 2013
                  This one took 3 days, 2 hours per day, and rest of the days in between for drying. I focused mainly on flowers this time. Keep tuned for more. Hope you all liked it!

Poem - The river of Time

Finding myself amidst,
the river flowing so fast,
nothing seemed so fixed that
more than a moment it would last.

On seeing to my side,
I found I was not alone,
Before I knew much about anyone,
I realised they were gone.

Looking for an anchor,
with water and water all around,
happy to see at an arm's distance,
the stable, immovable ground.

Pushing myself out of the river,
getting up, firmly on land I stood,
waving hands to others flowing with the river,
It was River of the time, I understood.

Hello everyone!!
                   My photography subjects for the day were cherries. They were red and delicious. I enjoyed photographing them and eating them too.

Photography - Horses

Hello everyone!!

                     I am sharing with all of you a few photographs of horses. I clicked their photographs after riding them. Horses are noble creatures and I came to know more about them during the trip. It was a unique experience. I enjoyed a lot. Hope you'll enjoy these clicks!
