-: Welcome to Arunima Art Gallery :-
I started experimenting with very simple sketching and painting with crayons, watercolours, and acrylics as a stress relief technique about fifteen years ago. With neither training nor inborn artistic talent, of course, it was strictly an attempt to take the mind off work at least for short periods of time as a full-time academic there was limited free time to pursue painting as a serious hobby. I tried to sketch or watercolour sometimes over coffee or lunch breaks. Indeed, I found this worked to relax my mind and possibly make it more productive as well. The randomly selected compilation presented here consists of the works of my better half, Purnima, and yours truly. Her watercolours and acrylics can be easily identified as they are better and reflects the details and care she takes in her work. In fact, she started her hobby later than I did but she clearly has some artistic genes as she too has had no training. I recommend painting as a stress relief exercise even for those who believe they don’t have the talent for it. It works!
