Another new glass painting : a lady with fruits

I got this picture from Internet and the moment I saw it I knew i would try my hand in doing this on glass.It was quite a challenge to do the shadings and especially the skin color.My hubby R has a great credit in this painting majorly the body of the lady.The most striking feature that I liked about this lady is  her attitude while carrying the fruits.She has  an amazing pose that I liked so much.
I mostly used Camlin water -based glass color,except for the dress and the face and body. This glass painting was totally a new venture.Though I am posting this now but I completed this a long before the Japanese girl,rather its a first one in which I tried human subject.firstly I was hesitant about  this but it finally turned out quite well and I liked it.Hope you  also would like it.

Random musings

It’s So What Wednesday over at Life After I Dew and I’m linking up! This week I am saying SO WHAT if..

  • I like to stay in USA,though its not my own country,and have to live so many miles away from home.
  • I get irritated when people advise me to do things that I already know to do, I'm not stupid, give me some credit.
  • It annoy me that people don’t comment on my blog (I know you are reading), but I find it totally acceptable when I read someone’s blog and do not comment.
  • I obsessively check the reader stats of my blog. I gotta know if peeps are reading and which things that I write about are most popular.
  • I haven’t been the greatest at leaving comments on the blogs I am reading lately.
  • I like to read others blogs and tryout their ideas and projects by myself  only to decorate my house,but I  am not copying anyone.
  • I love to wear lots of  jeweleries,especially dangling earrings,though I am not sure how it exactly looks on me.
  • Whenever I go to supermarket,I cant help but get attracted to the cosmetics isle because I just love cosmetics and wish I could have lots and lots of those,nothing is really enough.

Whats coming up??

       These days I am busy finishing quite a few projects .I guess every body with creative finger goes through this phase ,when you are bubbling with ieas,and energy to ceate something,there is a kind of itch that occurs and provokes you to start a lot of projects .right now my mind is too much preoccupied and overcrowded with so many ideas and desires,that I am practically unable to  finish a single project.
I hope this requires a list for the

Started projects:

1. a square crochet  doily
2. a glass painting.
3.a bookmark.

1.a crocheted cushion cover.
2.a blanket throw(crochet)
3.a large crossstitch table cloth for future dining table embroidered bed cover with pillow set.

Isnt it a too small list to be completed within this year?
Oh yes I wish to complete the started one within this year only.Projects to be considered are entitled for new year,2012.That's it for today ,see you all soon,with a finished project.

Check out my previous post on other projects and I would be happy to receive comments on them.

A relaxed weekend in gopalpur

I know I know.... I have been lazy at writing. I was this close to put up a post and say: "No not now lets finish some other work,and then write in some other time. "Some other time means  when creative juices start flowing again.
But I said... no, that's not fair. to myself and my blog.
I started this blog very whimsically.... and I am thoroughly enjoying it now. So.. I should not put something on back burner just because of laziness.
last week end we have been to Gopalpur on sea.
If your soul is craving for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city life, then just pack our bags and head to Gopalpur-on-sea.It is 16 Kms away from Berhampur ,Ganjam district ,Odisha,India and close to the border of Andhra Pradesh .Gopalpur is mainly known for its serene  beach,scenic sunsets.(though we have been able to be the lucky observers of good sunrise.and a silver moonlit sea on  full moon night.)This is a perfect beach resort  with  sand dunes,coconut groves,and reasonably isolated,and undisturbed by excessive tourists.

Gopalpur-on-Sea is one of the finest beaches on the eastern coast In the days of British East India Company,Gopalpur used to be an important and busy port of the east coast,but now very little remains of that.There is a light house which gives a majestic view of the sea as well as as entire gopalpur.This beach is ideal for short trip outings and as relaxed weekend destinations.some glimpses of the beach.
