Fridge Magnets

Hello People,

Today's project is something which had been sitting there on my desk from a long time and was waiting for a magnet to bound it with somewhere it now belongs to.. yes.. It's happily is attached to my fridge now. I had a fun time making this madhubani inspired magnet, for I love Madhubani paintings and smtimes I do paint them. My earlier attempt at it can be seen here.

I have a fetish of collecting magnets as souvenirs as they are one of the best way to remember the places you have been to. I have many from my earlier trip to the US :) I remember the first thing in the souvenirs shop would be Magnets I would look for :)

Here's what I made :)
Did you check out the madhubani magnet here, well, this is how my fridge looks now..
I remember, the mask one is from New Orleans, the Tiger one from Grand canyon, the castle one from City of Helen and off course... the cards in the wine glass one is from Vegas (Where else would you find the duo combo) :)

Here's a close up of the magnet. I love making miniature creature related madhubani paintings :) They look so cute :)

Here's another angle of the same..

Do tell me how do they look like :)

PS: If these posts inspire you to bring out the creative best in you, that would be the bestest thing that will happened to you, and I'll be flattered. But, kindly do respect the hard work and thoughts that goes into these works and please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks!!!

Take Care!

Gond painting

I have been eyeing the gond art from a very long time now, the only thing pulling me down from trying this amazing art form was time and now that I have ample of it, I loved making this beauty.

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.

Gond paintings are amazing to look at, truly intricate yet very very simple. The designs are basically evolved from everyday life yet the intricate dots, dashes and lines which fill up these everyday life inspired art form are amazing to fill up.
