Line Drawing In the Madhubani Style: A Couch Adventure
Not much to report here. I am excited for the new year and looking forward to meeting some new goals. I am not making plans, other than personal development, as this year may prove to be more restrictive than the last. Vacation plans are on hold and we are taking it one day at a time. Taking into account everything learned last year, I am endeavoring to spend more time with the people I love, as well as sharing the love of Christ with the people I come in contact with. Real love seems to be at an all time low in society so I am going to be looking for ways to love, encourage and bless those around me.
Dabbling in Indian Art
As of late, I have been trying my hand at Madhubani art, an ancient Indian form of art. The above painting of the elephants (not mine) is an example of a professional painting. (If you click on the picture, it will take you to the website) If you remember, a while back I tried the Indian art form of Gond art where I painted deer, chickens and a bird. I find Madhubani the perfect artform for sitting on the couch while we are watching TV. The style I am working in, Katchni, is line based and only done in black, white, and red. I found a few workshops online to watch that have inspired me to practice.
This peacock was my very first drawing. All those circles on the peacocks body were giving me hand and neck cramps.

It’s Tea day and I am joining the T ladies hosted by Elizabeth & Bleubeard. My tea today is Davidson’s Tea, Organic, White Spiced Peach, 16-Ounce Bag. I recieved this 1 pound bag of tea from my hubby for Christmas. White Spicy peach tea is my favorite kind of tea so I am always on the look out for this flavor from different brands. It is the perfect blend of spice, fruit and the flowery white tea.
Happy Tea Day,
