Green Pastures - Oil Painitng

My paintbrush and paints looked so neglected,I haven't painted in a long time.I was waiting for summer so that I could keep the windows open and do a nice oil panting.In winter we keep the windows closed and the chemical smell from the paint and the medium just circulates inside the house.This is another attempt to improve my oil painting skills :)The painting looks better in person,as the oil paint kind of reflects light when I attempt to photograph it.....

Quilled Wall Hanging

The quilling mania continues :) I've been wanting to do a quilled project for a long time, but quilling supplies here are very expensive .The craze for quilling hasn't caught on yet here in Germany.So this time on my trip to India,I loaded myself with a lot of quilling supplies.I visited a good old shop in one of the small lanes in Purasawalkam,Chennai  where I remember hunting for thermocol and charts back in my school days.I was surprised to find the shop still very much the same but filled with crafting stuff of every possible kind.It did take a long time to finish the wall hanging,but the end product was worth the effort.

Quilling these little bugs was very interesting !Though I gave up trying to stick a wing on the Honey bee !

 The lady bug is my favourite :)

Framing it was yet another Challenge !

Thanks for stopping by ! Have a nice day !
