Festival Time!

Happy Deepavali, Folks!


Yup, this is my own effort at rendering a lamp in MS-Paint. It already looked juvenile enough, so decided to not add the "glow" around the flame (which made it look like the flame was shedding fur :-().

Do eat lots of sweets and wear new clothes! I am already doing the former thanks to my wonderful parents who sent me sweets :-D. I am definitely going to try to do the latter too. People in India will have the additional joy of bursting fire crackers. And yes, don't forget to light lamps!

Wishing you all a colorful, sparkling and joyous Deepavali :-D!

Hey that's a real good one. The colors are very much in harmony. Good!

I was trying something similar on MS Paint for a couple of hours, to come up with something for Diwali. But after many failed attempts I think my lamp looked only close enough to an eye. So I gave that up, and just drew a scenery! :-D

Happy Diwali to you too! Have fun! And btw, I bought the plants and they are gracing my patio right now. Will post about it!
