A Tale of Twin Paintings

I put my heart and soul into my work, and I have lost my mind in the process.
-Vincent Willem Van Gogh

It is true for each of my creative works. My paintings have its stories and often they echo my deep-rooted emotions and deep talk with myself. I live in each of its stories and moments of creativity.

So here I so very wish to share my stories of two paintings with you all.

A Tale of Twin Paintings

Finally Falguni has the other twin painting tittle ‘Hope Shines’. I am super happy that she has chosen this one. And then there the first twin painting titled ‘Follow the Soothing Breeze, Here’ already owned by my daughter …

Why am I saying this two paintings as ‘TWIN PAINTINGS’?

Because I painted this two paintings simultaneously, keeping them side by side using only one art paper, dividing them with masking tapes. And they both have the same wavelengths I felt at the time I was painting them. While I was working on this Twins, during their creative process, colouring, taking pauses, brushing, re-brushing, stroking the brushes here and there, I remember I was contemplating on various things, specially doing meaningful purposeful work for the rest of my life. A purpose greater than life itself. Many a times I felt discouraged and demotivated, but never ever I felt lost as to what next. I’ve been always having different ideas to move forward in life. Never look back what I couldn’t, but moving forward what I can. Just like the titles of the Twin Paintings, I have been following a Soothing Breeze instilled in my heart all my life keeping my ‘Hope’ Shines throughout this life’s journey so far ….

Amazing, na?

Now I’m so glad that one twin painting is with my little sister-friend Falguni, and the other twin has its permanent residence at my dear daughter’s far away homesweethome.

When I first shared the two paintings after seemingly finishing them with my daughter, she immediately asked me to keep the ‘Follow the Soothing Breeze Here’ painting for her. I just loved the urgency to book the painting for herself. So I did keep it aside for her, happily. Last time I visited NY, I took that painting for her home there. She has already few of my paintings at her home. Now all the people come to visit her place, they ask her about the paintings and she feels so proud to let them know, ‘My mom is an artist. These are her paintings.’ She has been my very own cheerleader from the day I started the painting journey in 2020. And from then onwards, I listened to her many suggestions for my Jian Bird Creates and my painting journey. She absolutely adores my creative style of living and specially this journey inspires her to follow the soothing breeze deep inside her loving beautiful heart for herself.

Now ‘Hope Shines’ had lost its Twin and was alone, passing its days with other dazzling paintings around it. One day Falguni came at my Fund raising event ‘Meet & Greet’ for love and light. She walked through my small Jian Bird Gallery, and there she found her ‘Hope Shines’. As definitely always her hope shines through all the ups and downs of life’s tragic and unexpected happenings and yet she continues to shine ✨ For that reason or some other, she decided to own the ‘Hope Shines’ …

For an artist, the canvas is his life, breath and philosophy. So when someone owns their artwork or creative piece, and genuinely wants to keep those with them, I as an artist consider it as honor. I feel they can relate to the piece as I do. And for most of my artworks, I had this conversational experience to tell a story or to evoke an emotion. And there are some who wants me to attach the story with it. I feel it’s a complete connection, from soul to soul.

Now I know my very first TWIN paintings will always remain as their beloved treasures at their soul-home wherever they go. They are themselves two amazing souls in the beautiful Earth, self-made, selfless and strong.

Lastly, I just want to say to ALL of you;
Never forget. Hope shines only for those who believe.

Thanks, kindly, for stopping by and reading this long note from me.

      Thank you for letting me know what you’ve learned about me. I’m happy for this as well.

      I love to paint. Sometimes it makes me wonder too. And always it’s a great therapy for me. I think I’m fulfilling something that I’m meant for in this Earth. Pray for my health.

      You’ll be happy to
      Know that I’m in a 21 days No Sugar challenge with my sister. Consciously maintaining this ritual. Wish me luck.

      1. 21 days no sugar challenge as in?

        You won’t add any sugar products?

        But, how will you avoid sugar naturally found in our food? Like fruits etc?
        I can do no sugar challenge anyday… As I don’t like sugary food.

      2. Fruits are included…and that shouldn’t be limitless. Ha ha
        No chocolates. No other sweets. No sugar in tea. (I love milk tea with sugar)

        I mean, just consciously no extra sugary products. ☺️

        It’s going to be fun.

        Will you track and size through out this? It could be fun.

        Also, maybe write a blog on it?
        Add some workout. I know a 21-day workout challenge. That will add more fun.

    1. Well, not really…
      When I think of yellow, I see the beautiful vast mustard fields of village roadside agricultural gardens …

      And for me, yellow has been my favourite color for a long time. Not from childhood, that’s for sure. And I can’t remember any memory associated with this color though.

      Just I love this color. 🙃

      1. The universe can be light or dark.
        God, the Most High Spirit, Creator of the universe, is invisible.
        Jesus Christ is Light, Spirit/Energy, and broad-spectrum radiation.
        High energies appear in the form of plasma, like lightning and thunder, for example.
        And the man, the woman, and the animals created from the dust contain the Spirit of God.
