This mixed media painting is about an internal dialogue that takes place when we take time to reflect about the what and why of our work/life. There are immense possibilities that lie all around us and within us. The painting uses many figurative elements that symbolize hopeful possibilities, such as, flowers, birds, hands, shells, a doorway etc. The more you look into this painting the more intriguing elements you will find.
My process of creating art is akin to the process of discovery. I grew up in India, where people wear colourful clothes and beautiful jewellry. The festivals in India are a display of colours and artistic creativity. All of these things influence my artistic creations. I find colour is my friend. It helps me express what I feel deep down.
Look at this painting entitled, 'Possibilities'. The luminous colours of yellow, red, iridescent purple, aqua green themselves communicate immense possibilities. If you look closely, you will find various symbols that communicate the message that all possibilities lie with in us. You'll see a profile in the right side of the painting looking beyond in a faraway landscape. Yes, there are immense possibilities lie ahead and at the same time there are possibilities behind and all around. There are figurative elements of birds, hands, shells, flowers and a doorway- all symbolizing enormous possibilities all around us. It is up to us to choose and make the best of our opportunities.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
