I love training into city on a bright sunny day. I sometimes take my 4-year-old son with me too. We spend a few hours in the city, there is always something new happening at Federation Square. Plus the food and the coffee is so much better than anything we get in suburban Melbourne. Last week, I took my son to city during Easter break. We first went to the Cupcake Shop in Melbourne Central. Holding a cupcake is literally like holding happiness in your hands. My little one got a special Easter bunny cupcake, while I bought my favourite carrot cupcake. After that we spent sometime playing in NGV’s Kids Corner, and then we were off to burn off the calories.
NGV keeps coming up with these interactive play areas and exhibitions for the young ones, which are very entertaining and educational. If you haven’t been to the NGV’s Kids Corner, I suggest you take your kids soon. Here are some pictures of the place for you.

A lot has happened since I last updated my blog. I finished my post-graduate diploma in teaching, travelled to three different cities (Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney), visited many art shows and museums, made new friends, and most importantly I finally enrolled in Stephanie’s e-course Creative Courage. Stephanie started her workshops in September last year when I was buried up to neck with university assignments and teaching commitments. Thankfully I am able to participate in her April workshop.
Hardly a week into the workshop and I already see a change happening within myself. Great company of creative people do this to you..lift up your spirits, help you find your voice, your direction..and provides with plenty of inspiration and motivation.
I will share more about the workshop as it progresses.

I am almost finished with my university, one more week to go before I get a much-needed and well deserved holiday break. I plan to get back to blogging and art making full-time during my holiday, missed it much throughout this intense academic year..phew!!
For the time being, here is a glimpse of what I have been doing to satisfy my creative instincts while juggling university, work and family life 🙂

Hello everyone. I have an announcement to make. My university starts this Monday and I am so looking forward to the daily mayhem that awaits me till the end of the semester. Unfortunately I will not be able to blog much (if any at all) during the semester. But the good news is that I am on twitter and you can follow me and my creative adventures on twitter and my Facebook page.
So this is a official break from blogging for the next three months.

But I did!
Took care of a whole lotta things, and am still super energized 🙂
We Melburnians had a very bright and sunny day today..and I felt every inch of my existence filled with such joyful energy. So lazy day can wait..
I filed all my university/school/personal paper work..WOHOO!! Cleaned up my studio, and of course kitchen..went for a walk in this fabulous weather, felt like I owed it to great mother nature for rewarding us with a sunny day in winter 🙂 Read a few of my favourite blogs, and cooked a hearty dinner for me and my boys. I also spent some time gathering visual references and various tidbits for a large size painting that I have been itching to paint for quite sometime now. Have a look at this fabulous painting at apartment therapy.
I also recently planned a whole unit on “Silhouette Art” for Year 10 Studio Arts. I am leaning towards artists like Kara Walker, and old Victorian Style Silhouette portraits.

I am blogging after such a long time that I don’t think I will even attempt to justify it. Suffice to say that life happens and often things are out of our control. I missed blogging as it helped me put my creativity and life in perspective.
Sharing a small sketch I made on 6th of June, the day I had my exam. I also posted it on the flickr group “what I wore today/ drawings only“. Since I am off from university for few weeks, I am hoping to inject some life into my blog and blog often. :)
