Made this sketch in mumbai when I used to stay at borivli with my friends. It was a wonderful time with friends.

I made this oil painting of Radha and Krishna during my Engineering day. Took me 4 years to complete it! Created it at leisure in between the studies. It was fun and a good break and helped to free my mind. My friend Gagan and brother were my best critics for this painting. Could create it only because of Gods grace, I dont think I would be able to make somthing like this again in my lifetime..
I saw this form of craft just after marriage. But had no idea what it is called and how it is done.
Later had to go to US for one of my projects, saw this in one of my friend, Madhuri's album and came to know it is called Quilling. There was no stopping then!
Google devta ki jai!! Found all I needed to know about it, ordered a kit and browsed lot of patterns.
Seeing my enthusiasm, my friend Ricky volunteered to help. This became our tea time activity. We would sit to add some flowers some leaves after office sipping our tea. It was a time well spent and well enjoyed :). Later after coming back to India, my brother also helped in giving this some final touches (definetly wanted to get included in the credit lists!) Thanks for your help Ricky and Karan. Not to forget my hubby Subodh for getting it framed. Will post the framed version in some time.
