Two sketches. Hope they bring you joy! (blog marathon post 28)

The love I get from all of you is an amazing thing. I feel blessed for all the nice things you say to me in my comment box.
On my down days, I re-read the lovely lovely mails which my readers send. I haven't yet responsed to mails. But I promise I will. If you have written me a mail, and not got a reply, please resend.

For today's post, I thought I would share with you two paintings/artwork that I did in my art journal.
My art journal fills me with joy. It is almost a meditative activity. I LOVE filling it's pages, capturing the memories, the mood and anything that strikes me as worth capturing at that moment.

Here's what I did. I made it quickly while she was asleep. It is hard to get her to be still otherwise.



Here is one more. (I placed the capsicum on top of a book, for contrast)



More tomorrow.
Hope you have had a great day!
(I sure did)

  1. They are lovely, especially the first one! :)
    It amazes me when I see you doing lots of things so skillfully. Even I do not watch television but struggle to find time for painting (I am bad but want to practice watercolours. Made a couple of paintings but can't continue) but then, I have a toddler :)

  3. Wow! Beautiful sketches, Preeti! I love the way you have captured your dog's smile in the sketch too. In the second sketch, I love the way you have drawn the shadow of the capsicum! Looking forward to more and more sketches! :-)

  4. Lovely sketch especially the first one madam - I remember the quote "Dogs leave paw prints forever in our hearts". No doubt they are god's best creations. They have got nothing to learn from us humans but we have got everything to learn from them.

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

Hey!

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
