A Face

A little bit of freetime and a mobile phone art app in your hand can make the moments come alive…

I started to paint the screen with all my favorite colors… but then somehow somewhere in between I sensed a face pop and I continued to sketch away at leisure and found a face staring righton .

Now the face was somewhat serious and I just could not gel with that, as the moment was anything but that, so I just had to play with my fingers on the screen just a bit and lo and behold that face was more appealing to me now.

It’s a work in progress…Yes I could have gone on refining this piece,there is a lot of room for it, but somewhere I just stopped adding more to it ,perhaps I might pick it up in posterity and paint some more.

P.s Must mention I used no stylus, just my fingers for this one. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece of art.

How did you like my mobile art ?

Which face resonates with you today?

Travel Trails Antwerp

The Antwerpen Christmas Market is spread out over several streets and squares lighting up the entire historical centre of Antwerp beautifully into a huge and happening zone to stroll around in…

Glowing in the night!
Beating the winters chill
Sitting by warm fire pits…
Sipping hot glühwein!

And the mistletoe?
Well its no small branch
But a giant one indeed!
Fit for all the crowd that gather under
Just to share their love for each other….💞

Travel Trails

Bruges’ is an absolutely fascinating fairytale kind of town,and at night, under the moonlight, it’s magical atmosphere intensifies.
A canal trip in the Reie named after the river Roya totally worth it.

Reflections in Rootedness

As the year comes to a close only to begin anew… a special thanks to all the people who send inspirations our way by their profound shares.

Recently my friend Christoph retweeted this post on Twitter commenting…

‘As above so below’

And it drew me to contemplate on the profound truths of reflections in rootedness of life and its myriad expressions.

Of the uncanny resemblance of the roots, branches in a tree to the nerves and vertebrae of mamals including man.

Of how our energy is a flow of potential endless patterns in possibilities.

Of reflections of resounding resonance in nature

Of infinite abundance in its manifestations

Of parallel dimensions & more beyond compare

In the spaces between the synapses

There is a plethora of profound truths

Awaiting our awareness

So much to explore and discover!

As above so is below

As outward so is within

Vast beyond belief

In faith and hope

Everything is envisioned..

Life & Living

Agatha Christie

My friend Laura Bailey from Linked In shared this post in dedication to the memory of Agatha Christie on her birthday. 15 th September.

During my schooling years I had been introduced to her novels and have been an avid reader of her works.

But I never had a face to the name until I saw this post. When I saw her in this post share here are my musings…

They say eyes are a window to the soul

I see a depth of wisdom

In her eyes, of many lives lived

Of experiences in the sharings

There is myriad mysteries

Yet untold and withheld.

The face contours speaks to me

Of a life of reservation

And perhaps some restraints

Yet the eyes conjure up the creativity

Of an insightful nature

That envisions the beyond.

The places & people

Of a knowing beyond this lifetime

So much a face can mirror!

Vorticity

Art work Title : Vorticity By Savvy Raj

Sharing my swirl artwork called Vorticity. This  I created with my some of favourite colors to suit the mood of the day!

Vorticity


In the core is the dynamics  of the flow ,
Sense the spiralling fluidity
Of the momentum moving along in circles
In the whirling is the dance of energy.

A reason to be

A short post and photograph caught my eye and I was drawn to pen a few words.
https://wp.me/p7CppQ-Cc
Thank you Mark Bierman for the wonderful  inspiration.

Life is what we see and make of it.

Life creates something out of nothing

And everything out of something.

The illusions in the envisioning


Are but reflections in the making


Of what is visible, so as to matter


To the purpose of the life within.

Charlie or you or me are as visible


As the sun, the sea or the stars


Partially seen and understood


In the giant plan

Each have an untold story


Each matter in their own way


Each have a reason to be


To each their own.

Strength of Silence

Strength of Silence
Silence is Strength in its subtlety
Fragile and yet full of potential
Expanding consciousness in awareness
Tremendous growth occurs in Silence
Explore the Silence  of the soul and spirit.


Silence  is powerful beyond  compare
Start your journey to understand  the self
In the sounds of silence
Wisdom speaks
Silence listens without a word.

An Illusory Life

I wonder…


Where is the beginning


Of illusion in this illusory world?

In the many facets of life and living

Blending hues and tones

In Connection beyond compare

And yet unsure when asked

Where is the blend & breakpoint


In this ephemeral existence?


We are vulnerable beings


In this so called reality


Trying to understand

This illusory life


To the best of our abilities


To be all we can be!

Yet sublime is the point of saturation


Like the subtlety  of twilight zones


We are left wondering the why, when,what, who & how…

Of the ascent of light and the descents


Like how the morning breaks in.


Showering upon us the light of a new dawn.


Dawn to dusk,dusk to dawn


Creating the Circles of being


Life happens and we goes on…

Keeping the wonder alive!

Little things

Life is in the details, in the little things

That often goes unsensed

Unnoticed in the daily humdrum

Of living every day.

If you wish in this now begin

Bu taking a mindful moment

Beyond the challenges of every now

To sense the signs of grace

That is occurring in life.

There is always something

In this now to be grateful for…

Beauty of every dawn is in its unending hope.

Beauty of twilight colours of the sky

Enticing the senses…

The sounds of music, of humming a tune…

The simple Joys of hitting the right notes ..

Yes life is in the sensing after all.

Breakthrough!

ImageCredit to unknown photographer

Strength in the grounding

Here is a truly powerful image

Speaking volumes without a word.

Depicting the power of nature

Breaking through a rock…

Life cannot be undermined

It finds a way to flourish

Nature has a way of nurturing itself

To survive against all odds.

The strength of the spirit

The intention of the soul

Courses through its veins

Until it finds a path to grow

Rooting itself steadfastly

Its grounding is its strength

Nourishing the life

To stay centered .

And grow it does and how…

Spring through summer

Come rain or shine

No autumn can last too long …

As that seemingly leafless tree

Springs forth a hopeful bloom

Sharing the fruits of life and living.

As the seasons change….

Breakthrough are a way of being

Course correcting itself no matter

Finding its bearing in full bloom

Nature is meant to thrive!

Illusions in the Reflections

Reflections in the stillness

On a patch of water

Reflections of sunlight

On a passing cloud

Reflecting colours

We humans have named…

The truth of clarity

Is the freedom in the uncertain

What seems to be, may not be

What is, may be not

What is apparent, may be invisible

What is assumption, may become a contradiction

Or simply delusions of our own imagination.

Or simply a clarity of illusions in the reflections.

Savvy

Was watching the reflections of sunlight dancing on this patch of water on the window sill of my terrace one evening. I was mesmerized by the fleeting cloud it had captured and its amazing colours that held my fancy for a long while…

An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…🙏

Heart of Art

Consciously or otherwise,

whether it is…
In Steering the words that flow, toward a larger purpose.
In Channelling the ideas that spring forth
In Creating artworks with a splattering of colours

Art draws expressions from wonder
Art thrives in the heart of the being.
Art flows through in movement & solitude…

When the he(art) speaks, the artist listens
For Art is life and living an art.

Illusions & Reality


What is illusory ?
What is reality?
What is I and what is you?
Both so intermingled in the intersection.

Creating new perceptions
In the making of reality
Charting through illusions
Decoding the delusions…


Of assumptions of the invisible
Of judgements of the  intangible
Of connections in the uncertainty
Virtual seems true & truth virtual.

Between the apparent realities
Diminish the blurry lines of truth
Many lives are lived, in one life
Or perhaps there are many lives after all!
