Caesar

This commission was difficult to do for myriad reasons. I could not refuse as a very dear friend asked me to paint it for another dear friend of hers. (You can see another commision done for the same friend here.) The time to finish the portrait was 4 days. I finished it in two!! And […]

Champa

This is Champa. She was my friend Swati Seth’s daughter. Rescued from Champa Galli in Delhi. She lived with Swati for 18 months before getting picked up by a leopard. But in those 18 months, she meant everything to Swati. Swati of The Color Caravaan has been doing stupendous work for many years now. We […]

ChammC with love

ChammC came into my life on a morning walk. Rakesh who is the founder of VoSD was walking his dogs one morning and I happened to meet him. He had a baby carrier of sorts slung around his torso and inside was ChammC. This absolute adorable bundle of joy. A Cocker Spaniel with eyes that […]

Wet nose

Continuing in the series of narratives – story telling through pictures – the effort would be incomplete without a questing, trusting nose in connection with Rakesh Shukla. Rakesh is the founder of The Voice of Stray Dogs (VoSD) and the inspiration behind The Poonchh Collection. There is nothing more wonderful than waking up to a wet […]

Eyes only for you

I asked my husband and kids – what do you think the dog is saying to Rakesh? And their answer was – ‘I looooove you‘. Though it was said with a scrunched up face and a gooey mushy voice. I think the little one is saying that too. But over and above the love I […]
