This is what I did today. Don’t ask me what it is, I just felt like doing it so I did it.
I couldn’t come up with a satisfying name for it either, so I decided I will ask help from the incredibly creative art community here :)
Please suggest a name for my painting.
I will choose a name from all the suggestions made during next 10 days, i.e. on 12.12.2012. Hah, what a date!

And here are some closeups:
Where does a circle begin? Where does it end?
I find circles to be most interesting shape because they do have a beginning and an end, but only once. Once a circle is complete, it stops having a beginning and an end and becomes infinite, eternal, going round and round forever!
Could it be that our universe, which appears to have a beginning and therefore should have an end, is actually like a circle? Once it got completed, it just exists, eternally!
Here is my tribute to circles, and to the circular nature of the universe and time!

Something different for a change!
We all like to believe that in every situation, we analyze facts and make rational sensible choices, but as it happens, that is not the case!
Recent research presented in a BBC Horizon episode provides new evidence that most of the day-to-day choices we make are actually made by our unconscious mind. Only after a choice has been made it is passed on to the conscious mind to be executed. Our conscious mind is therefore not the decision-maker but the executor.
So what criteria does our unconscious mind uses to make choices? Believe me, you don’t wanna know ;)

Hi Folks! So this here is the first-ever painting that took me a whole darn week to finish!
This is a gift to my wife on our wedding anniversary! When my 2.8 year told son Rohan saw it, he immediately pointed to the man and the child and said “Daddy and Rohan”, and thats how the painting got its name.
Your comments and criticism is most welcome, as always : )

This little one I made for my 2.8 year old son on Father’s Day. It’s supposed to be a bit surreal.
The style is a tribute to famous Estonian artist Navitrolla. Check out his work, he is amazing!

I suddenly realized I’m getting stuck with yellows and greens and reds etc. always warm colours, so should try something different.
Here is the something different.
The lighthouse at la point du raz in Brittany, France at dusk.
It has to be said that this photograph does not do justice to the real painting. Somehow the camera could not capture the light rays or the beams from the lighthouse very well.
Nevertheless, here it is.

I am thrilled to inform that Javed’s Art has been nominated for yet another Award by the wonderful Fiammetta over at http://alittlebitflame.wordpress.com
Thank You Fiammetta! I’m much much honoured.
Here are my answers to the questions:
Here is my latest artwork. I rather enjoyed doing this because it presented some new challenges. Hope you like it.
The composition is partly based on a photograph I found at www.mourgefile.com which is an excellent resource for artists to find royalty-free photo references for inspiration.
The title is a tribute to Robert Frost, from one of my favourite poems of his “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”, the last paragraph of which goes like this:
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

THANK YOU Lexa!
This is a great honour and a huge motivation for me! I will try my best to make the blog better and keep updating regularly.

Here is another large one. What I found interesting doing here was the dark cloud on top and its shadow below, as well as the rock!
Pretty satisfied with both, though the fields and perspective could’ve been better.
Is it only me or does the rock appears to have kinda mysterious glow around it? :-)
