Pair of Peacock

Hello friends :). After enjoying the marriage of my dear brother-in-law, I am back with my blogging activity. Last few weeks were full of shopping, packing, traveling, receiving friends and relatives and last but the most important was enjoying traditional north-Indian food prepared by my mom-in-law :).
This post is inspired by my past post of Mayura.

It was done for one of the order of cushion covers and home decor accessories. I have used warli peacock theme using acrylic colors and stones on silk cushion covers.
So guys, how is it? Did you find the concept of warli peacock on home decor accessories appealing?

Warli Krishna Series4

Last some days, Harshi, my lil one enjoyed reading Ramayana storybook which we got from Oxford house bookshop in last month. I used to read Ramayana for her during bed time for more than a month. Although Ramayana is one of the two great epics of India, reading the same story daily for more than 20 times was too much for me ;). Luckily from last week her divine love for lil Krishna is back in reality. Now a days she is picking up variety of storybook for bedtime other than Ramayana and loves watching Krishna cartoon DVD for sometime :).
As the name of the post suggests, this is related to one more act of my lil warli Krishna. This is painted on cushion cover made up of silk cotton mixed fabric, done for Rakhi's Spinning Wheel about which I have told in my last post.

This is first time, I am introducing Yashoda maiyya (mother of Krishna) in warli style.There are many stories describing Krishna-Leela. One of them is Makhnachor (butter thief) Krishna.

Little words behind Makhanchor Krishna theme 
When Krishna was a child he was very fond of eating butter. So much was the urge that he even used to steal it. One day he was caught red-handed while stealing butter by Yashoda maiyya.
However, I have tried to add more butter to the theme ;) by adding warli Gopika churning butter in big pot, in traditional style. Also Krishna's friend is enjoying eating butter along with him.

I have reused the boarder effect theme as described in one of my post here.

Boarder has Warli Gop, Gopikas, playing Garba dance(traditional folk dance from Gujarat, India) on it.
Stones and 3D glitters are used to give morpankh effect of Krishna and on boarder.
So how was it? Did u guys enjoyed this painting?

Warli Krishna Series3

As I have mentioned in two of my last posts about the bulk order of cushion covers on which I was working. I have recently finished with it. The last month was totally dedicated to the themes requested by Rakhi for those cushion covers. Few of them had a theme Warli Krishna. Rakhi has got her home decor accessories and furniture shop called Spinning Wheel in Whitefield, Bangalore. Each stuff in her shop has got elegant, ethnic, traditional Indian elegance and unique feature on its own. I will post in detail about it soon :).
Today I am posting one of the cushion cover which I have painted with my lil warli Krishna :)

When I started with it I was totally clue less about how do I showcase my krishna on it?..... But as it progressed, I was totally in love with my ....Jhula jhule Nandlaala....Radhe Sang jhula jhule Nandlaala...:) 
At one side of cushion cover, warli Radha Krishna are celebrating the silence with nature. Where as the  other side has, warli Gopikas celebrating the tarpa dance with sound. It has got deadly combo of celebration with silence and sound :).
I have used stones for Krishna's morpankh and beads for Gopikas tarpa sticks.
I will post some more hand painted cushion covers with different themes soon.
