Symbolic Paintings of Pots by Healing Artist

 Pots have been my favourite since the beginning years and are still however much I try to avoid painting pots they come up some how. Pots and vases represent fertility, abundance and unlimited potential for growth. As pots were used in ancient days for storing grains, food items and jewellery as well as gold coins and money they represent abundance and prosperity.

Dimensions - Painting on Canvas by Rizwana Mundewadi
 Dimensions is one of my old paintings which on working and reworking has come up to this art.This was my first break through towards partial abstraction from total abstraction. The layering technique and laying paint one above the other was a refreshing technique which I enjoyed working at and there are many paintings which I have painted in this style since the past decade.

Tranquil Within -Painting on Canvas by Rizwana Mundewadi
 Tranquil within is a form of mandala painting which has confidently come up during my early years of painting. Going back to all these artworks has made my belief in God and the total universe stronger, and of course the belief that there is a place for everyone in this universe however small they be or big.

 My journey as an artist has been full of love , excitement and anticipation of something very big. I just have to follow and go with the flow.

Serenity Pot by Rizwana Mundewadi
 With cubism influence I learned about and understood  father of cubism Picasso. When I was confused and could not answer why I painted what I painted, art history and google gave me some answers.

 The cracked pots came up when I was totally inspired to understand human beings as imperfect. There is beauty in imperfection and it is ok to be not perfect in everything. I could cry, laugh out loud and be just me, There are no rules and there is no limits to my paintings and what I paint.


Blessings by Rizwana Mundewadi
 water one of the most powerful symbols of abundance has been in my artworks since the beginning and 'happy spaces' came up in year 2000. The flowing water has fascinated me for years though now I have moved to earth and mountains and present state is of strong element metal.

Line Painting by Healing Artist

 The scraping of paint was another very attractive and impressionable art technique which i tried in my early years of painting. Line drawings and paintings were an important process of my evolving as an artist.

The journey of pots in my paintings began with great artworks and still go on .I still love painting pots and though my artworks have evolved into much better and proportionate pots  I will go on painting for my whole life using various shapes and sizes in colourful pots. The images displayed here are of few of my older pot paintings from year 2000 to approximately 2006 and there are many paintings as I paint like crazy!
