Purchase Midnight Cat

 

Hi Everyone!  Let me introduce you to my Midnight Cat and a new set of Simple365 photos.   I started taking these photos in February.  This is the fourth set of 16 pictures each, so these are from late April.  This one mostly depicts me working in my atelier and in the garden when the flowers were in full bloom.

Simple365 – These are photos of everyday little things or things that I do that remind me to be happy.

Right around that time, I got into ink-making using flowers around the garden.   That is a story for another day.   Doing that reminded me of growing up around my grandfather’s printing business.  I remember being mesmerized by the world of ink and paper, and it has remained a lifelong passion. 

 

 

 

 

When I started this website, Whims And Fancies was the perfect name as I was standing at the beginning of many paths.  Over time, I gravitated more toward my love of ink.  Recently I have been thinking of changing the name to suit my current journey.

 

So, Whims And Fancies became InkTorrents Graphics.

The web address is now www.inktorrents.com

 

However,  I have it set up so that Whims And Fancies will still be around as it is a very important part of my past. 

All the old pages will still work and my email address is going to remain the same.  If you have linked back to my site in the past, you don’t have to change anything.

Hope you like the new name, I really love it!

Speaking of the past – many a year ago, while I was volunteering at the local shelter,  a battered and cranky middle-aged cat stole my heart and came home with me.  Over the next months and years, he became a confident and loving gentleman. This painting is his story.

Originally he was going to be farther away, along a path.  Then I thought of how observant he is and decided to do a more close-up painting focusing on his eyes.

The Midnight Cat loves to roam about the forest.  During his jaunts, the Moon himself gives him a blue glow and lights his path through dense green forest.

I didn’t think of it much then, but now it looks to me as if something has caught his attention.  I would love to explore that more.  One day.

 

If you wish to take him home too,  this calm and confident Midnight Cat is available in my shop both as an 8″ x 10″ art print and in greeting card format.

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis - A Watercolour Painting by Soma Acharya | Whims And Fancies

 

Hi Everyone!  I spent the last few months in a haze.  Apart from many other things, I spent a lot of time pondering the subject of existentialism, alongside a feeling of swimming forever without reaching the shoreline.  When this happens, I escape into my self-made world of photography and painting.  It wraps me in a safe cocoon.  Sometimes I find it very hard to leave that world behind and come back to reality.

A part of my little world recently changed forever, even before the larger world started to go awry around us.  Sadly, it is an echo of my current state of mind, more destructive than constructive.  I started taking daily photos of simple, everyday things to remind me to be happy. Reflective of my current state, they are in black and white.

Very aptly, my husband suggested I call it “Simple365“.

Trading Secrets

I really love the solitudinous nature of a forest; it creates such a beautiful setting for reflection.  My cat is happy to be there, enjoying the simplicity only nature can bring.   An oak tree, strong and wise, protects my cat within its branches.  There is a green butterfly that roams there.  They trade secrets with each other.  Today, the butterfly is telling him about metamorphosis.

 

I hope this little story of their friendship made you smile.

If you will, please leave a happy note or memory in the comments.  Let me know which one of my “Simple365” strikes a chord with you.  Join me if you wish.  You don’t have to take a picture everyday, but do look around you, take a photo and share if you like.  It might make someone else smile too.

 

Take care and until next time,

-Soma
