Two month long wait, meetings friends and family, travel between Chennai and Bangalore and finally something that makes me happier than ever….
Yay, Our shipment has arrived! All those dresses, boots, jackets, accessories and everything that define me as a person is here. Although we are home with our family, there are times when I miss the cooking a delicious dessert or spending all afternoon designing an elegant earring. Memories make life beautiful and while I unpack my belongings, it was nice to revisit the various black paper sketches arranged neatly in my portfolio.

My DH is a wine connoisseur who loves red wine, needless to mention all the Napa valley visits and wine tasting experience. Inspired by the world class flavor of Robert Mondavi wine served with cheese and cracker is this sketch made on large black paper with white pencil.

Bad water, Death Valley National park
The place is just as deserted as the name itself. Unusual, landscapes, unexplained moving rock yet an amazing place to visit. Bad water, or I would like to call it “The mirage”… had a trail that leads out to the salt flats. It is at 282 feet below sea level, it’s the lowest point in North America.
