This Pretty Painting Project







I painted after long. 3 years to be precise. And I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I am quite satisfied with this end product. Though this piece looks tricky and artistic, it didn't require anything besides patience. No creativity or mind's magic. There's something called paint-by-numbers, where the canvas comes with lines drawn, each section numbered and colors are numbered. All you got to do is match both and viola, after 15 or so hours, you end up with this beautiful piece. I wanted to write somewhere 'Colored/Painted by Ruchi' but it kind of felt like cheating. Now that this piece is done and dusted, I am missing the daily ritual of painting. Playing with the colors. The strokes. The beautiful 20 shades. It had almost become an obsession for about a week. I have decided to get myself another such scenic canvas and paint for my room in Bhubaneshwar. I am loving it.

And the excitement to finally meet one another after 6 months of that trip to Pune, the Lohagard Trek- we were kids excitedly clicking selfies in our face masks, hurriedly putting a quick dab of sanitizer before hugging one another.


Next day early morning we were to start for Ooty. Sleepy heads, gulping a bowl each of muesli, we started onward journey to Bandipur National Park. Devouring uttapams, dosas and piping hot cups of coffee for breakfast at a restaurant by the highway, chit chats were full on, as was the music and dance in the 12-seater vehicle. Funny anecdotes had us laughing our hearts out, gossips were such a thrill and cooking recipe exch…
