Love is in the air!

I love pink hearts…the kind you see all around as Valentine’s Day approaches. Balloons, gifts, cushions, hearts…all in red and pink,  celebrating the  day of love.   So, I decided to use those hearts in my drawing for this week’s art post and give the picture a twist.

Pink and red colour pencils for the hearts that speak about love…the kind I receive from the love of my life. My pets, Chikoo and Cookie.

The paw in Zentangle with the pink heart is something I saw in all black on Pinterest. I used that idea  and gave it a whole new look.

This cartoon of a parrot  was something I had in mind for a long time now, but I wanted to do that, too, with a difference. So, I decided to make it in Zentangle  with a heart-shaped beak, in pink and red.

Isn’t my Cookie a stunner?

I don’t believe in the concept of Valentine’s Day…I did,  as a youngster,  but with age, I realised that love needs no special day, or a special reason to be celebrated.

“Love is life…it’s all that we need to survive!”

That’s all for this week…see you all next Sunday!

Do you know the secret to living a happy life? Eat. Pray. Love. Or, watch what you eat, wish well for all and fill your heart with love! That's precisely what I try to do through my blogs: 'Metanoia', the wellness blogazine, and 'Fictionista', my blog for fiction and non-fiction. Welcome to my virtual homes!

      1. .1 is usually thin… Which brand did you use? There’s . 05 as well … But thats too thin for my drawings. Maybe you can try that.

  1. Loved each one of them, Shilpa. The paw is definitely very artistic and cute!! I feel so so inspired seeing your drawings. I think I will have to do something about making the start sometime soon. 😀

      1. You always encourage me dear Shilpa…aur main hun ki kuch karti hi nahin! You know I feel I’ve lost the confidence I once had. But, I promise you I will make a start…or perhaps I should say, a comeback. You’ll be the first to know. 🙂

      2. Esha, you are occupied with so many things right now and that’s why you don’t find the patience to sit down and draw. But, I am sure that the day you decide to do it, you will definitely come out with something very very beautiful! And, yes, I will be the first person to know! ❤

      3. That’s what friends are for…You know you make me feel less guilty now. 😀 But seriously, I will not simply talk about it…hopefully by the end of the week, I will come up with something to show you too. Thanks a ton for those encouraging words, again, Shilpa. ❤

  2. By God your creativity is amazing – what stunning work! Each one turns out unique but this parrot is just so so cute!!! You have a real gift Shilpz – should turn then into square frames of art to be gifted to folks on ocassions – make the frame colored and rest put a border of white/black and VOILA you will have an amazing gift item on your hands. You should probably make a few and try out at the stores near you – I am sure you will find takers.
    Give them out blog giveaways or sponsor it for another blog which can give you traffic!!!!
