August Artworks


I am presently in India visiting my sister in Chennai, Tamilnadu. I brought with me just a few select art supplies: watercolors and chalk pastels. Surprisingly, chalk has turned out to be easiest and most effective way to create art on the fly. With just a 9"x 11" reusable vinyl chalkboard cloth and a box of colored chalks and a few wet paper towels, I am able to capture the fleeting images of life here in Chennai. Chalk art, by definition, is ephemeral. My visit too is of short duration. Somehow, the medium and the subject seem to have found each other.

  8. Nice idea to make a little bit Art during your flight. Your chalk paintings look very nice, I like your Ganesha made of leaves. Chalk is a good medium to make Art on a journey, it is easy to handle.
