Greetings from a sunny December winter’s day at home!  After a long crazy residency, a great successful show and a zipping trip to Nagaland’s Hornbill festival, here we are at the end of this year. New love for me this year is murals and ceramics. Also new on the cards is our artists’ collective Intercontinental Rollercoaster Club. A great feeling to have fellow artist friends here from Spain, Austria and Japan. We are now a stronger and a more alert force to apply ourselves to the pursuit of Art collectively. Good times lie ahead. May there be more travel, more good work and hopefully we see the tribe grow and the friendships deepen. My sister also graduates from Srishti School of Art & Design this year as a film maker so that’s another quality addition to the collective right there! Well next on the itinerary is a long drive all the way from Chandigarh to Bangalore! I’ll be posting about that next. Happy Holidays!

In the middle of the night I saw that yesterday was the first day of winter chill coming in. The auto guy was wearing a shawl. And on the way back from a late night movie two men taking a stroll on the road were opening up a shawl each to wrap around themselves. The autumn collections are in the shops shouting out for love. I went and picked up my winter clothes from home. There’s a dry freshness in the wind in the mornings that reminds me of the hills. So here’s to my first entire winter spent in north India. I have been in the south for the past 5 years and would only come home for a week or so in winter. I look forward to so many things. There will be winter photos up in this post from time to time.
