Wishing you the best 2015 ever!


W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – edited in PS4

Another year is coming to an end and I can honestly say this year has flown the fastest I’ve known any year to do! One of the greatest gifts provided to us by the Universe is the gift of creation. And I’ve been honoured and inspired by meeting so many creative people here this past year. I would also like to thank all my supporters and those who have purchased paintings, it is something I’m truly grateful for….


Wishing you all a day filled with
wonderful things to be grateful for

and may 2015 be filled with 
LOVE, JOY and INSPIRATION!

Happy New Year!

And the tree asks, "Why am I here?"

Winsor&Newton watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm - 12" x 8" - unframed

Every branch shaking, shifting, and falling in the icy wind,
A tiny leaf at the very end holds strong,
Why am I here, questioning wondering waiting, for that final pulse that will blow him down?
But in that tree was a force, a force of life, a force of strength, a force unmatched by the icy wind.
That tree was a young tree, a tree that never crossed roots with wild bushes,
Bore fruits desired by many, tasted by few and discarded by the very planter,
Questioning why am I here, questioning is this the only way,
Now the broken branch begins to fall, now this tree was not very tall,
No other tree was like this tree, this tree was special,
This tree was bearing the strain of an icy wind,
Just as the branch had hit the ground there was silence all around a calm in the drifting storm
Now this was rare, a tree this young, a tree this strange, a neglected tree, a tree with shallow roots, a tree with hollow bark had survived the storm.
Questioning why me?
This tree was a lonely tree,
this tree knew he would grow strong,
weak body strong thoughts kept the tree unmoved on broken paths.
Extract from “A tree” – Emmanuel Mohanlall
