Nothing Much...



 I picked up a set of colors and brushes when I went for the book launch of 34BGAC, and after much delibration, put them to some use today. 

It do feel good, playing with colors after a really long break, and I have a long way to go to reach where I was before, but what the heck, I am happy :-D nd that is what all matters.

That is so so very pretty. I didn't know you are good at paintings as well. :-)

P.S.- Kindly put that photogallery of urs on top instead of putting it so low. No one will see it there. And its something all should know about.
