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 :)

Cards Cards Cards! by Srinithi Raghavan

I had an amazing time getting creative with Indian Wooden Stamps, Acrylic Paint, Beads, Gel Roller Pens and Kraft and Black Cards from Michaels! We have so many weddings & events this year, and there is nothing more special than a handmade personalized card.

This DIY video walks through the process so you can do it too! I can't wait to see your DIY cards!

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.

Krishna Jayanthi Feet by Srinithi Raghavan

It is customary in South Indian culture to draw little feet leading up to an Idol or Photo of Krishna on Krishna Jayanthi (Lord Krishna's Birthday), to represent baby Krishna entering the home. We live in a really small condo and I really wanted Krishna Jayanthi Decor that we could easily store and use every year.

I decided to paint little 3.5 inch feet (I know they look a lot bigger!) and decorate them with a henna like motif. I also painted a gorgeous colourful Henna Mandala Kolam for our little Krishna Figurine. I tied the whole thing together with a 5x7 print of an old Krishna and Radha drawing and some home made Kesari.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Navrathri!
