Starry Night

Creativity always pulls me out of the mundane and all those not so pleasant thoughts from the different roles that we play to sustain. Every art that I create, every writing that emerges out of my thoughts, makes me feel happy about myself. And it reminds me of that beautiful person I can be; a personality that is always suppressed by a hypocritical and malicious society. Solitude enlightens you! Art enhances your internal beauty!  Thus over the years, it has become very important for me to embrace art to the fullest extent, not only to reach contentment but also to leave behind the type of society I have to deal with every day. The month of July was filled with such creativity. 

It began with my Spanish class assignment. I decided to get a little creative with my final assignment for A2 level. I had to make a portfolio mainly involving the imperfect tense telling what I used to do when I was 10 years old. Here is what came up. 




This gave me an idea to sketch the characters from the Greek mythology I was reading at the moment. I picked Hermes first for his interesting innovation.


I have always been thinking about how I could transform myself if I put my hundred percent attention into my interests. And often, with the kind of roles we play, it seems impossible to attain that. As I could not give myself fully to art, traveling, writing or any other of my interests. But it was while doing this assignment that I realised that I was completely wrong. 

With the given setup I find myself in, I did not have to give my cent percent to the interest but I had to do the same to that creation I am working on, at a given time. While I am painting, the focus must be the painting and not art as a whole. Eventually a pattern developed. Ideas boosted in my mind. 

A white gel pen and a book with black sheets did wonders and a theme of Starry nights emerged out of my complete involvement into my creation and not the interest as a whole. 







And who knows, this might not even be cent percent. As I realise my cycle of interests, I know that I shall be switching focus to a next one soon after having created some art. So I prepare myself to give my maximum to that side too. Days are thriving with positivity and creativity. As far as the hypocrisy of the society goes, my creativity has made me self involved to ignore them at times and has made me strong enough to challenge them when required.

  1. This is so beautiful. I love all the drawings. You are so good with the white pencil. What a novel way to interpret an assignment! Bravo! I loved loved loved these starry night illustrations. And the opening lines in these blog are things I would have written in another post. They exactly echo my sentiments. Look forward to see more art work from you. :)
