Jamaican Art by Srinithi Raghavan

A few weeks ago I was in Kingston Jamaica for work, and had the amazing opportunity to visit Ocho Rios. I had a blast climbing Dunn's River Falls, and I had a delicious lunch at Miss T's. Here is a picture at the Bamboo Beach Club, and a Zentangle of Luggage :)

Painted Chettiar Dolls by Srinithi Raghavan

I had such an amazing time transforming these wooden shapes from Michaels into a traditional South Indian Chettiar doll set, which we often dsiplay over Navrathri. I used e6000 glue to secure the large and small balls, and to secure the lentils and beans to the "pots". The dolls are less than 10 CM high, with the pots standing at just about 2cm.

Donations, Framed Art and Metaphors by Srinithi Raghavan

This past weekend I created two pieces of art for a Charity Auction in the office. The float frame I got for the elephant was totally worth it and it really brought out the art. 

The bell was my second dabble in what I had earlier called "Lace overlay". The sound of the bell in a temple or church creates a beautiful deep intricate sound that fills the air around it, which is what I was trying to depict with this painting.
