Under the sheet of sparkling stars in the silence of the night. I see myself pondering over my thoughts that have the intensity of form. They pour out easily as paintings, which I have presented. They are the woven threads of joy, ecstasy and pain; every feeling, every smell, every visual, being an integral part of my subconscious. My mind being the canvas of my introspection, the thoughts are always random but there is definite continuation. I love and enjoy that continuation which evolves but is still static. Each and every person is merely an experience and i try to see myself in them. I see myself holding on to them and then baring them in language I Know – painting.
