I have seen very few paintings on round canvas. Mostly artists and collectors prefer square?rectangular canvases. is there a specific reason for this? In art galleries also one gets to see only…READ MORE
this is my most recent work. There is this exhibition in town for which entries are called for. Do you think I should enter this one? I am so confused by looking all the time at this work that I've…READ MORE
There are certain colours in my colorbox, like Indian yellow and cadmium green which are lovely but not thick enough to make a solid opaque layer. Every time I use these, I get a thin transparent…READ MORE
I am not proud to say that I have not added anything to my artwork since a long time. I just can't seem to get back to my canvas and there really is no reason. May be the holiday I had recently is the reason. I am hanging on to Leh Ladakh. But at the same time I miss painting. I really do. Probably writing this blog will help.
I know it may mean nothing to 'Yipee' about, but to me, it is a big deal. I have a website. BaljeetKaur.net .It is important because when I started to paint, I would surf the net and wonder if I ever would have a site of my own.

I mean I just can't chuck them in the public waste bin. The kitchen cabinet I use for my art supplies is full and the top of my…READ MORE
My round canvases finally got their due :) when three of my abstracts got accepted for annual show of a govt. art akademy here. Needless to say i was really happy..till i saw what I was against. Some really good work was on the walls there; works that made my knees weak. I could never be that good or creative, I realized and another thing that I realized was that there was no place for whimsy paintings in my city. India is that way still quite orthodox in art. but anyway, i was happy that i…READ MORE
