Waiting for love.

Though I had completed the drawing challenge, yesterday I hadn't got time to post it on the blog. I had posted it on my Instagram Art page though! So, in case you were waiting for a post from me, I apologise for not updating it yesterday.

Here's the portrait I made yesterday, as a part of Rise and Draw as well as the May drawing Challenge, where I paint one  picture every single day.  These days, since I am also taking part in Rise and Draw, I get a photo, and an instruction in my inbox every single day!

Here's what I painted yesterday:



And here's what I made today:



For today's portrait, we were asked to illustrate the background, and relate it to the model. To me the model appeared pensive and kind of sad, as though waiting for something or someone. I am fond of Avicii’s music, and I felt sad when he died. Thought this was a nice way to pay tribute to him. The background has words  from his song “Waiting for Love.” I enjoyed making this one, and am quite pleased with it.

In case you haven't watched this version of the  video of this song, stop reading right now and watch it!!




Beautiful and heartbreaking isn't it?

Tell me in comments, what you think---about my portraits as well as my video.

Tomorrow--a new drawing.
Till then, just take a moment to feel thankful for all the things going WELL in your life.
Life is so unpredictable.

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
