Dear Paint, love the way you do that rainbow!

'tis the story of five mud pots that lived in a corner of home, and needed some Color!

Out came my acrylic paints ...

Did a deep blue on two of 'em
With a white twig on one.

Merged blues, white and green on another ...

Popped out one dirty fellow with a yellow...


Gave the fifth a worn out look, as if the blue-green-pink pattern inside was washed away with many years of the dark brown.


Up they perched on my ledge, 
Along with a painting of mine.

Go, Show off yourselves to all, 
The shapes and colours of thine!


What is your critique, and pick-of-the-lot?

  11. Reminded me of craft classes in school when we used to use oil paint in water- a crazy mix of all colours to get a rainbow random lined pot we could take home after school.

    P.S: Love the white twig. :)

  13. Good art work Ambika,

    Loved the deep blue and the worn out one... The painting and the pots are showcasing a rustic feel to them, only that the table looks out of place :)

    @Arti, sweet, sure you can pick one, any time you're in Blore :)

    @One, yes the drawing is by me!

    @Preethi, the brown one is terracota too!

    @Santosh, yeah the chalk paint's got to be put to use on that ledge "to get that rustic look" :)

    Thank you all too!
