Viewer's perspective on "Anonymity" Manisha Vedpathak

I liked these lines.

"Art can only be viewed through the meeting of two perspectives – that of the viewer and that of the artist".
And to know the unique perception of your artwork from the viewer is really interesting for an artist. I love asking people around me about my painting at various stages. When I was painting "Anonymity", I posted the image on my friends whatsapp group and asked for their perspective of the painting. I had then painted only one mask . I would like to share some of the views here:(my apologies for some posts are in Marathi language, which is my native language)

- Madhavi Apte
4)Every Storm, runs out of Rain !!
- Janaki Dhamane
                            5)Always be true to your feelings coz the more you 
                                      deny what you feel, the stronger it becomes.........
- Janaki Dhamane

6)मन ख्वाईशो मे अटका रहा..
जिंदगी हमे जी कर चली गई...

- Gauri Bhagwat
Would my readers like to share their views ?

"Anonymity" abstract by Manisha Vedpathak

My painting is finally complete with the masks added, giving life to the painting.

Acrylic on canvas, 80x80 cms
contact :

We all wear mask. Perfection masks, superiority masks, intellectual masks, 
social masks of coolness, aloofness,strength etc . We try to hide ourselves behind these masks. We get so much habituated  of wearing masks in front of others that we finally loose our identity. Bearing these may or may not be a conscious decision . The reason might be social conventions ,fear etc.It is very important for a person to know the real  human being he/she is. Whilst masks harm us by stopping us to lead a natural way in life's stream , they also protect us from being emotionally wounded by others. I believe they should be  worn temporarily. We need to acquire the skill of timely dropping and putting  these masks. Absence of masks lead to difficulty in handling reality. So we need to look into our inner self to know how to cope up with this . 
My painting connects with the viewer by asking several questions like, "What is real and what is unreal?", " Which mask do you wear?", "Given a chance which mask will you drop?" ....Sometimes the mind is doubtful and sometimes it is clear. The color combination used here depict these emotions.

New painting Manisha Vedpathak

New painting started . Already three layers have been added, some more to go. I didn't 
have any plan before hand on how this painting will take shape nor have thought of any color combination but if possible I want to add some masks to this painting. Let's see how it works and what meaning will it give to the painting. 
Stay tuned!

"Abundance" abstract by Manisha Vedpathak

All my life I have believed the Law of Physics that opposites attract opposites,
but according to the Law of Attraction, "Likes attract Likes". I have been posting
my painting in progress on this theme. I am finally done with it. 

The entire concept of Law of Attraction is based on like attracts like. There is a lot 
of information on LOA(Law of attraction). There are people coaching LOA, 
courses teaching you how to practice this Law and various articles explaining it. 
So I won't go into details explaining the Law as one post is not enough to write about LOA.
The Law of Attraction states that whatever you think of consistently, gets created. Your
 thoughts are powerful magnets and you willget what you consistently think about 
whether you want it or not.  So start intentionally thinking about what you would 
like in your life- such as money, love, relationships, health, spirituality-for the LOA
 to work for you. 
 There are various ways of practicing this Law. There are leaders who can coach you 
through it. While browsing through all this information on the internet, I came across
              something called a Vision Board. Vision boards have become a really popular exercise
for figuring out exactly what you want in your life. These boards contain images
 and words that resonate with what you want to attract your way. Secondly, the i
mages serve as a great reminder of your desires. Each day, you can look at the
 board and remind yourself of what you’re trying to attract. 
Financial abundance is the number onereason people become interested in the 
Law of Attraction. So my paintingis a sort of a vision board for people who 
want to attract prosperity. It comprises of money and the material things that 
money can buy (like property, car etc), freedom, luck and relationships. 
Hang this painting in such a place that you can see this everyday. Take out
time everyday to review the visualization exercises and prep your mind 
and body to receive this incredible gift.
They say that "Gratitude will shift you to a higher frequency and you will
 attract much better things".Creating this piece of work was a gratifying experience
 for me and I am very satisfied with the outcome. If you are interested in this piece
 of artwork or want to commission one, contact me here:

"The law of attraction" abstract by Manisha Vedpathak

A few months after I came to India, I happened to meet a guy who introduced me to a concept or I can say a philosophical topic of Law of Attraction . I had then decided to put this on my canvas, had done a sketch as well. But with other paintings to complete and the portrait studies, this was laid back.
Two weeks back I started this painting but I am a bit slow as I am also reading more and more on Law of Attraction. There is a lot of stuff on Internet about this. There are people who follow and practice this and there are people who don't believe in this concept.
I have always been an optimist and so I believe in this Law . I am posting the painting which is half way done . I want to add quotes to the canvas but still finding various ways to do that.
Today I will post the painting in process but will surely talk about Law of Attraction when the painting is complete. Till then if you are eager to know more, do read about this on the Net or books.
