Fly High

Dear Artist Friends,
 Today, I Shalini Pahwa /artforte am feeling proud to be a part of Mudra Craft Stamp team. I am sure I would do justice to this wonderful team and learn from you.

As my first entry to this august clique of designers, I present a wall art which combines two lovely spirits – the power of “dream” and the exquisiteness and uniqueness of “hibiscus flower”.

To begin describing my creation, I am reminded of a nice verse that I read some years ago which has been my inspiration for this creation :

“Wake every morning with the same feeling…
Live up high and fly on top of the ceiling.
I just know that I'm on my way…
It doesn't matter to me if I'm chasing the clouds away.
North or South, East or West…
I live my life to the fullest.”

 In this wall art, I have used Hibiscus flower, which not only are very colorful, unique and picturesque, but also have immense medicinal properties which has been used across the world in many cultures. Inspite of being such a wonderful gift to mankind, Hibiscus flower continue to fly high without pride or fear, without arrogance or pretense – just spreading liveliness and love to one and all. This spirit is what is being captured in this Wall art.

Besides the colorful Hibiscus flower made from paper and decorated with riot of colors,stamps, glitter balls, acrylic paint and center circle panel created using distress ink with white embossing powder, I have used cut-outs humming bird cut-outs to heighten the spirit of “flying high”.

Hope you like my first entry. Please leave your comments. Would like to hear from each one of you and improve with every post of mine…
Thanks & have a great month of August.
