Abstract paintings have their own place in art history. But how some pseudo intellectuals talk about abstracts has nothing to do with its true appreciation. It has always been a conundrum for ordinary people when they confront such a painting as to how to make meaning out of it. My views own the true worth of abstract paintings and how to appreciate them are discussed in the forthcoming article in the ‘articles’ section of varnachitra online gallery

I shifted to paid hosting at last. I was trying the benefits of free hosting for the last two years, but the servers started to become unstable recently. from 17 this month there was a surprising outage of about 2 days. I ran for life and my two sites, varnachitra and seekpaintings are working fine now on new hosts. I have started working on a new painting in the mean time which is a nature painting in the line of 'stealer' an earlier painting. Stealer and seven other paintings are now with novica.com.

A new painting is in the process of sketches. I would like it to be in the surrealist, or magical realist genre. This is the second one where I shift myself away from simple nature paintings to slightly brainy ones. I use the traditional art forms of Kerala for conveying my idea. Please wait for a few more days to see the final sketch.
