Hello lovelies! The week just begins for those of us in Germany ...since it was a loong weekend due to Monday being a national holiday! Went to meet friends in a nearby district and had awesome fun visiting vineyards and enjoying hot Indian -Konkani food! After all the fun over the weekend...I thought why not have a bit of fun on the blog too...So here it is..Hand-painted furniture allllllll over my home...alll done by Moi! :D
This one is a hand-painted Warli Chair...featuring the Warli dance called ' Tarpa'.
This is the side view of the legs of the chair.
Since its usually the two of us at home..hubbie n me..we decided to conserve space by getting a folding dining table with two chairs...so when we have family n friends over..we extend the table and the following dinner bench serves as chairs. The dining table arrangement will have to wait for a later post!
The top of the bench is painted in the Mewar style. Acrylics on wood.
It depicts an elephant procession .
And last but not in the least..my fav...A side table whose sides I have painted with a Symbolic Sarasvati!
This is the other side of the side table. I calligraphed it with the Sanskrit Shloka of:
"Asato Maa Sadgamaya....
Both hubbie n me wanted a house which imbibed the Indian essence in every nook n corner..What better way than to create a fun and ethnic look which is unique to your home! And me being a self-taught amateur artist for over 4-5 years didnt hurt either!
Also..just to clear things... No am not Schizophrenic.. as my friends claim "Writing on every surface available is a sign of serious mental problems!" :D I just like to paint on every available surface! :P
Well..so much for now... More painted furniture is on the way..but these things take time.. me being a lazy bone doesnt make things much better too! :D So what did you think of my 'Fun'tastic Furniture... did u have fun looking at them as much i did painting them?! Let me know what you think!
