Artwork for MAY.

My artwork for May consists of two quotes that are closest to my heart.

You matter



Be kind to yourself


Some very important words we forget to repeat to ourselves. We forget about ourselves as we try looking after those who depend upon us.

For me, repeating these lines to myself, especially when feeling sombre, gives me a feeling of being hugged.

Try doing it, if you haven’t.

Look into the mirror first thing in the morning. Look right into your eyes and say to yourself, “You matter.” See how it feels.

And, on days when life seems to slip from your hands, and when you feel neglected, remind yourself that you need to be kind to yourself. Self-care and self-love are important. For, you can’t pour from an empty cup, can you?


I also made this self-portrait with my pet Cookie perched on my shoulder, as always, giving me a kiss.

And, of course, there are my favourite, Mandalas, too.







Finally, I made some changes in my Instagram handle.

Earlier, it was linked to my blog, Metanoia, where I shared posts on health, food, books, pets and art.

Now, I will be sharing only my artwork on my Instagram handle. And, that’s why I changed the name from shilclix to shilpsart.

Here’s the link.


My other Instagram handle – @healthizms – will have posts on health, food and nutrition.

Do drop by for a visit there and leave your insta handle for me to follow you back.

That’s all for this month.

See you all with my artwork the end of next month.

Until later,

Take care and stay safe.
