The End of Year 2012, Forgiveness from the Universe

As the year 2012 comes to an end and we all try to assess, analyse, remember incidences, sad, happy, as some friends added some subtracted, I have to, we each have to thank God a plenty. Do remember to count your blessings and the world will be a much better place to live in. With the rumours of the mayan calendar predicting dooms day 21 Dec 2012, would life be the same if you knew this was the last day of your life.
I am sure we would pause to smell the fresh flowers, speak with every one with a smile and do away with all negativity, forgive and forget and live each second to its fullest.
Karma is always at work, what goes out comes back to you. Most of the problems in this life are either past issues not solved or past lives karma not cleared. Take the decision now and clear off all your past karmic issues, feel light and at peace.
healing paintings are just one way to clear off all bad karma of past years and past lives. The symbols used in abstract symbolic paintings help individual to accept and forgive and forget. the universe has everything in abundance and you just have to tap this unlimited source.
Feeding birds and taking care of plants is the easiest way to connect with nature and the universe. You may make it a habit to feed birds regularly and this is proved to clear off past karma. You may set up a bird house, a bird feeder, a bird bath or just spread seeds for them to eat. do charity whatever it is possible to the underprivileged. Another way to clear off past karma is to feed fishes with puffed rice with the intention of forgiveness from the universe.
As art is open to criticism and critiques I understand that painting symbolic healing art may be termed as hocus pocus, my karma over flowing on the canvas, or my inner need for creativity. I do not wish to prove something to the world, let the work continue to speak for itself. meanwhile I pray for world peace, happiness and prosperity.

Art of Framing New Art Collectors Framing Tips for Paintings

My First Floral painting, "Outstanding" by Rizwana
 As the journey of the red pilgrim began , more than a decade ago, it seems like a life time, I have experienced that with our art, there is another very very important art which every artist must know, that is 'the art of framing'. Before beginning an art collection every art collector also looks at the final product they are paying for. With the frame an painting looks complete.This I realized when my most precious painting got  sacrificed at the hands of an amateur carpenter. The pulling and stretching of canvas for framing is a tricky skill, which only experienced framers know. It was trimmed and trimmed, from corners, and made to fit the wooden frame! And believe me this is very important for every painting.
Freedom, Oil painting by Rizwana
 Every painting looks complete with a different frame. As we paint on canvas or paper, or any other material , every artist knows that there are different requirements of frames for their work. As an oil painting on paper would require a glass covered frame, the same work done on canvas will require only varnishing for protection and a wooden frame to hold the canvas.
Floral painting on Linen by Rizwana
Acrylic frames are cheap and also removable, with costs of frames rising high many artists prefer to have changeable frames so that after the exhibition of their paintings they can reuse the same frames for other works.
Art Collectors framing tips for Paintings- It also helps art collectors to have good quality frames as their masterpieces displayed in homes need to be dressed up. A golden bordered frame will increase the aesthetic appeal of an artwork, and some go well with silver, whereas some collectors refer their at to be framed in matte finish frames or textured frames.
It is very important for an art collector to have good quality frames made, that which will protect the painting for many years. They may also go in for removable frames if they wish to keep changing art on display in their homes and companies. Frames when easy to remove will help to store many more paintings in less space, as the artworks can be rolled easily.
Good quality wood or material is required for framing your prized possessions as the costly canvas paintings need firm and strong support. paper paintings also need to be protected from environmental hazards and temperature changes.
An important tip for new art collectors is to go in for collecting same sized works and removable changeable frames. This will allow you to keep changing the art on display without having to spend every time for framing painting. You, a new art collector may change the art on display every few weeks or months as desired if you have same sized paintings in your art collection. This will also give you the liberty to go in for good quality frames as you will make few ones of higher quality as compared to many. There is another important point for every new art collector, buying art is one thing , displaying, storing it is another. Hence select your painting frames with care and some thought on how you wish to display the art. Framed Paintings are best when they are displayed on walls,
Golden Frame

White Frame
this increases the life of your paintings as well as life of the frame. As there are many chances of paintings getting damaged on storing. Framed paintings must be stacked vertically standing in row without touching each other. Consider these simple tips before going in for huge costly frames for your art collection.

Have a Great Day from Rizwana!

The Art of Doing Nothing, In Search of Complete Happiness

Complete Happiness Symbolic Abstract Painting by Rizwana

Happiness in life depends on how you perceive it..that's why there are some 'Happy beggars' and some 'Sad millionaires' in this world.
The fact that everyone is in search of happiness, and happiness, is like a  bird  who flies away when you try to follow it. the more you try hard for it the more it goes far away, happiness is a feeling , a moment, a simple gesture, each one has a different opinion, but we all agree it is very important. As our pet parakeet is still missing I am praying she keeps well wherever she is. The search continues..
As this year 2012 is coming to an end am again  pressed with thoughts about new year resolutions. Let us all agree that we wish the world is more happier, more peace and more prosperity. Who would not like happiness around, colorful flowers blooming, all humans friends, the earth a happier place to live and grace welcomed by one and all. With health the first followed by wealth, and then the list is endless..people wish for so many things without realizing that all these are material things, we are in fact in search of happiness. 
Hardly do people take a pause and break from their routines and think, life is so fast, I wish we all make this resolution for the new year, to take out some time for ourselves.
Time , hard to find for some but not impossible. Select priorities, and when you look at the returns you will agree it was worth it. From the daily 24 hours that you get, take a break of at least 10, 20, 30 minutes as your schedule permits you. 'Time for me' explain this to your family. Here you will not do anything, just sit ,relax, think and allow whatever thoughts wish to come, try to avoid negative thoughts and allow good happy thoughts. You may think of happy occasions , that which brought a smile on your face, made your family happy, made your friends jump with joy, try , you will find many such pretty moments which you have lost to the daily hustle of this life, they are always there, you just have to experience them again.
"The Art Of Doing Nothing" just sit , connect with nature, God, Universal Power, you do not have to read, meditate or sing , just be there, nothing, leading to empty mind. The most essential energy need of the hour for every human being, take time out, learn the art of sometimes doing nothing. Let all the stress dissolve, let the emotions come forthe, even if they are negative, anger, hatred, jealousy., analyse the situations, they are not as they seem, most of the times we exaggerate the severity of negativity. learn to take one day at a time.
Some feel wealth will bring happiness, but this is not so, that you learn after you reach this, some feel good health, jewellery, property, investments, but you will observe as each aim fulfills you come to know all these are mere materialistic things, happiness will be but for the moment and then again the same feelings, some vacuum, search for your true moment of happiness, make a beautiful world, within, where you can go and come at your wish. Do not allow anyone to control this home of your mind, and do not allow weeds grow in this garden of your mind, keep it always pure clean fresh and colorful.
With this routine of some 'time out' daily you will observe a new surge of positive energy surround you. A strength that develops, a new clear vision of what you want from this life, your goals. Continue making new year resolutions, do some, break some, (rules are meant to be broken!) make new ones, mould some, twist some, persist for some and let go of some, that's life!
The painting above is titled "Complete Happiness" a small abstract symbolic canvas oil painting. The feng shui painting is done using yin and yang energy colours. Colorful symbolic painting of the yin yang symbol, a universally accepted symbol of harmony. The Reiki Seichem symbol used in golden color in the mandala structure, sacred symbol geometry,  is symbolic of purification.
I wish to make simple colorful understandable art, art that heals. For viewing my healing paintings visit my website Thank You!

Painting a Tree and Garden Pots, Creativity Tips for Artists

Symbols in the sky
How to make at home artefacts and simple show pieces, as I do take a painting break from the canvas and appear and let my creativity flow into other mediums. I have made many simple cheap artefacts, and love creative painting of furniture, pots and vases, along with creative show pieces, trees and paper weights. It is the pleasure of making some thing, beautiful, that which was not present earlier, the creative need of every human being, is satisfied by simple things. Most of the times from creative use of junk and throw away items emerges a fresh master piece.
The symbol in the sky "move ahead"
 as I had painted the feng shui dragon overlapping symbols and sighted the same in the sky later on i wonder what the above symbol indicates, will come to know.. the sky an immense bounty of inspiration for all artists around the globe, just sitting and observing you are never left empty handed, you get loads and loads of unlimited inspiration.

 With staring at the blank canvases, I allow them to speak for themselves, until then there are other creative outlets for me, the last time the doors were painted,  now the tree artefact is being refurbished, not to mention the garden vases and pots that have been painted many times,as this also increases the life of the pots.

garden pots hand painted 

 There are times for every artist when they are in search for inspiration, observe nature, there is tons there,and take a break, paint some thing different, a different type of medium, brush up your artistic skills by repainting old things and furniture, making sculptures of any material, perhaps a collage of amazing pictures or old photographs . the physical energy combined with spiritual energy of creativity, You will be surprised to see how the third eye chakra, anjana , opens up, observe ultra marine blue crystals, I love French Ultramarine Blue color, and you get fresh ideas and inspiration to paint, now the canvas is the same, the paints are the same but your mind has a different approach, let's paint!
symbolic of fresh new start, clean slate of life, empty mind for new ideas, forgetting past bad experiences, beginning some thing great, your mind is emptied of all thoughts and open to new opportunities  umpteen possibilities,  it is very soothing and relaxing to observe the blank canvas try it!

 Many restaurants have special team of directors who look out for new art , art that is available for cheap prices or at concessions or bulk offers, combo offers with a lump sum price quoted for many small paintings.
 Art for restaurants and hotels need to fulfill the simple criteria of being colorful and attractive. Not too garish colors as the customer needs to focus on food and not the artwork for ever! The paintings must be of general appeal to the viewers and not have any adult content. Families must feel comfortable with the art hanging on the walls of the restaurant or hotel.

Many times hotels would need painting sin large numbers so they may also contact the artist whose work they like and order for commissioned artworks according to the size and number of paintings they require.
