While quietly watching a Jew family enjoying the waves at Peggy’s cove, I noticed that while the man enjoyed watching the big splash, woman turned away quickly to avoid getting wet. They both reacted differently and were right in their own way!
When challenges come suddenly like a splash, some face them boldly and others walk away to keep safe. They are all right in their own perception.
Milakuhle- Girl with a heart of gold
In the journey to reconnect with my original self, I created Milakuhle, a south African young girl with a heart of gold. She is sad but determined. She observes life quietly believing that one day she will make it what she wants it to be, on her own!
The Fall- Out
Fall is a beautiful season! Bright colours for some, new beginnings for others as schools reopen, but winter bells for those who may just focus on falling leaves and worry about winter being close. We are all holding flag of our own convictions while walking the path of life.
It can be just a fall or fall-out!
The MacDonald Bridge
This is my most recent painting that I created for a friend as a thank you for donating to my charity, Angad Hundal Society. I heard he wanted to have a picture of famous MacDonald Bridge in Halifax for his new office and I panted it for him.
The MacDonald Bridge is a famous Halifax landmark.
Pink flowers in white vase represent simplicity and calm. I painted those once I started coming in terms with grief and accepted that there is nothing that I can do except learn to live with what I have left. It was a moment of peace and summer flowers came out of that moment. Pink flowers in white vase represent internal peace.
Sunrise at the River
In my journey to reconnect with myself, I created this painting, Sunrise at the River. Who did not draw this scenery in their childhood! It was calming through back to my childhood when my world was full of hopes and dreams.
Orange Roses is my first painting that I finished, if I can say that, once I turned to my artistic side two years after losing my son. As I struggled with the loss of everything that mattered, trying to find a tiny light of hope in the darkness, these bright oranges flowers on a black background came to life!
They represent the undying human spirit, which shines through darkness. It helped me heal by providing focus and looking at them still uplifts my spirit!
The Street Musician
No need of big stages or expensive venues! You can be happy on the street if love what you do.
When I started getting out to overcome grief and reconnect with the outside world, one day while strolling on the Spring garden Road in Halifax, I saw a girl playing guitar, smiling, with her eyes closed. I was just fascinated by her pretty smile and soulful music! She was my superstar that day as she made me smile after a long time!
Here she is on my canvas, The Street Musician.
Women are multitaskers, we are all aware of feeling being pulled in many directions at one time. One day, when I was feeling tired, trying to balance my multifaceted life, multitasker came into life!
Agot- The Good Hearted
While I was struggling with ‘what did I do to deserve losing my son’ and slowly analyzed my life, I remembered that I have always been kind and followed do good, do no harm. This portrait is inspired by all good-hearted women in this world who love their traditional role and live a simple life.
Agot- the good hearted, is an east European country girl in a traditional headscarf. Her kindness and pride show through her eyes.
This is one of my more recent paintings. Watching the sea quietly and realizing the enormous power of nature is humbling. This is from one of those moments.
Pink Lily in Fire
Loosing my son left me looking for a meaning to life. It sent me on a path to rediscover myself by reliving my past through flood of memories. As all memories unfolded slowly, I found myself amazed at my own ability to remain a kind and caring woman despite all atrocities that I was subjected to by life. Hence the Pink Lily ‘n Fire.
It represents every woman who stands tall in fire and faces adverse circumstances without losing her delicate charm.
