Happy Diwali Wishing my Hindu Friends a happy Diwali. May the light shine on you always.
Wishing my Hindu Friends a happy Diwali. In Malaysia it is a public holiday tomorrow so I am currently sitting on the beach relaxing, maybe sketching, maybe surfing. I need the break. Sorry if I do not reply until next week.
May the light shine on you always xoxo
Diwali also known as Deepavali and the “festival of lights“, is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika.
Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes. On Diwali night, Hindus dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home, participate in family puja typically to Lakshmi – the goddess of wealth and prosperity. After puja (prayers), fireworks follow , then a family feast including mithai (sweets), and an exchange of gifts between family members and close friends. Diwali also marks a major shopping period in nations where it is celebrated ~ Wikipedia

banana musa drawing
Happy Monday. Today’s sketch in my moleskine is a banana flower and some bananas which is dedicated to colour pencil artist Sharon Siew who believes that we should fill facebook with flowers and positivity.
I learnt from wikipedia that a banana is a berry and it is native to tropical countries. Who knew my sketches would teach me new things!
Have a positive week ahead xx
Stuff on my table. Ring, hairclip, notebook and ornament
I woke up, walked over to my table, opened my moleskine and sketched what was in front of me. Stuff on my table. A smokey quartz cocktail ring, a feather hairclip, a personalised notebook and an ornament. It’s not quite done but it’s Sunday. There are a lot of things on my table. I filtered them out ;p
Happy SUNDAY xoxo
