Dancing Clouds

2017 | Oil on canvas

36" X 24"

All of the Sky is a stage for the dancing clouds. Such joy they bring to the eyes which gaze, forming shapes that constantly change.

I felt like a floating ballerina as I painted, joining the clouds in their performance.

Through the dark clouds
       
     
Through the dark clouds

2017 | Oil on canvas, 36" X 24"

Through the dark clouds, sunlight pours
Setting aglow the field's rows.
A little girl from the window watches, 
As rays of light overpower the darkness.

As the storm ravages the sea and everything that is afloat, a solitary ray of light provides some much needed guidance - a path for the lost.

Every cloud has a silver lining. Sometimes, when it rains, the silver lining pours. 

The Yosemite summer
       
     
The Yosemite summer

2016 | Oil on canvas, 20" X 20"

The sun swirls away, making way for the moon. 
The water dives into the pool as the hills watch this play.

 

 

The sky,the sea
       
     
The sky,the sea

The ripples on the water mirror the clouds in the sky. So different yet so much alike, the sky and the sea are boundless.

Ruby and Sapphire

2016 | Oil on canvas, 24" X 36"

Greatly inspired by the works of Monet, I enjoy capturing the appearance of the sea under the light of the sun.

The sea and the sky look like colors being mixed on a palette. The swirl of colors make you wonder if the sun is rising or setting.

Light and the leaves
       
     
Light and the leaves

2016| Oil on canvas , 24”X 36"

As a little girl, I accompanied my mother on horse riding trips in the jungles of Kashmir. The rays of sunlight filtering through the tall trees fascinated me. The play of light is something I love to capture on my canvas.

 

Autumn
       
     
Autumn

2016| Oil on canvas , 24”X 36”

This tree stands in all its  splendour of the fall colours. It is reminiscent of the Chinar tree in Kashmir. Inspired by my father’s work, the tree is graceful as it transforms to welcome the freshness of spring.

The Ruby Hills

The Ruby Hills is inspired by one of my father’s paintings created in the early 70’s. The sunlight plays hide and seek with the hills, colouring them yellow and orange.

A moonlit rendezvous

January 2015 | Oil on canvas, 30"x24"
On a cold January night while driving from Big Sur to San Francisco, I was inspired by the moon in its full glory, bathing the ocean in its silver. The hills withstand the great force of the waves, turning the silver to gold.

The mysterious passage
       
     
The mysterious passage

April 2015 | Oil on canvas, 30" X 24"
The canvas beckoned me to paint the image I dreamt of. As I painted, the canvas spoke to me — encouraged me to create the mirage of a world that exists beyond the passage.

Emerald in the sea
       
     
Emerald in the sea

2015 | Oil on canvas, 36" X 24"
The dancing waves of the ocean speak differently in its many moods.

The warm embrace of the calm waves leaves the rock longing for more as the wave slowly slides away.

Carmel by the sea
       
     
Carmel by the sea

2015 | Oil on canvas, 36" X 24"

The wave comes aggressively towards the waiting rocks, angry that she has to make the journey. Yet, she passionately embraces the rock telling us about the dark depth of their relationship.

The artist dips the brush into her soul to depict the different moods of the sea.

The Drama of Light
       
     
The Drama of Light

Oil on canvas, 24" X 20"

Rembrandt’s work has always inspired me. I try to achieve the same depth of light in my paintings.

The way the sunlight spills dramatically through the dense forest creates flickering shadows and silhouettes- almost as if the light is playing across the canvas.

Someone once said that it feels like a bucket of sunlight has been spilled over the path.

The Valley after Fall

2013 | Oil on canvas, 20" X 16"

Johnny my pet Chihuahua loved me more than I loved myself. He ran freely enjoying the spectacular views of the Fremont hills. In and out of sight, he played in the grass.Just before sunset, as I called him back home, he did not respond. I looked for him and called out but came no reply… I sat on the grass watching the sunset, waiting for him to come back …….

The Fremont hills stand beautiful in the sunset. As if a ray of sunlight cuts through the green meadows making a path, rushing to color all the hills golden.
