"Flow", abstract painting by Manisha Vedpathak

Every painting has a life, has a story to tell.
I came across something called " notion of flow".
 This is a state of heightened focus and immersion in
 activities like art,play and work. my case it is art.
 Exact feelings I had when I started this painting. 
I got so immersed in painting. I was positively energized. 
There are times when I paint crazily for 2 hours 
and then sit back and do the finishing touches the next day.
 And then there are times when I want to be calm
 and quite and take 4/5 days to complete a painting ,
sometimes a week. I was in a state of flow when I
 began this painting. Yesterday evening I started and 
finished in two hours with some touch ups done 
here and there this morning. I have used color flow
 as well as my fingers to paint. Thoroughly enjoyed. 
Had ultimate experience of satisfaction. 
"Flow", acrylic on canvas,29.9x29.9in


  1. 'Flow' - Abstract at it's best - grabs the viewer and takes them for a ride ... much like a roller coaster or catching a huge wave and momemtarily sitting in the cocoon - as overhead - huge 20 foot waves rush to shore. This painting is one of those. I have bookmarked your site and will be back.
