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.
Portrait of my husband who sacrificed everything to support me and made sure I was never alone in my struggles.
It is a tribute to every man who was brought up in a world where women are traditionally considered subordinate to men but grew up to understand and accept their wives as equal, even assuming a more supportive role in the family while the wives reached for their dreams. To all men with a soft heart underneath their tough exterior
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 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 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.
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.
Sunsets are beautiful in Nova Scotia and often very colourfull! I painted this for a friend.
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.
I love to paint flowers and this simple painting contributed to my growth as an artist. Every stroke is a teacher if you are ready to learn!
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!
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.
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.
