Second series of ATCs

This is my second series of ATCs..
I have taken few symbols in indian culture and tried to paint them in abstract style. I used acrylic colurs with hard flat brush to give the strokes to get the desired look for surface.

1. Diya
Diya is a small earthen lamp that is lit especially at Diwali. They are usually made of clay. Ghee or oil is used as the fuel and cotton wool as the wick. Sometimes they are made by part filling a glass with colored water, Ghee is floated on top, and again cotton wool used as a wick. It is a tradition in India to light diya every evening in the house as it is considered holy and auspicious.

2. Swastika.
The swastika is an equilateral cross with its arms bent at right angles, in either right-facing (卐) form or its mirrored left-facing (卍) form. It occurs mainly in the modern day culture of India, sometimes as a geometrical motif and sometimes as a religious symbol. It symbolizes Harmony, Lord Ganesh has it on his right hand.


3. Aum / Om.
Aum (written in Devanagari as ॐ), is a mystical or sacred syllable in the Indian religions, including Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism, and Buddhism.
It is pronounced as a long or over-long nasalized close-mid back rounded vowel . It is placed at the beginning of most Hindu texts as a sacred exclamation to be uttered at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas or previously to any prayer or mantra. The Mandukya Upanishad is entirely devoted to the explanation of the syllable. The syllable is taken to consist of three phonemes, a, u and m, variously symbolizing the Three Vedas or the Hindu Trimurti.
In Puranic Hinduism, Aum is the mystic name for the Hindu Trimurti, and represents the union of the three gods, viz. a for Brahma, u for Vishnu and m for Mahadev which is another name of Shiva. The three sounds also symbolize the three Vedas (Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda).

My First ATC Collection!

Here is my first ATC collection....
I have chosen Lord Ganesha as the Theme for my first collection of ATCs.
As a person, i worship Lord Ganapati and i have tremendous belief in him. As this Atc is something new that i am doing, i chose to dedicate this collection to God Ganapati.
This is a Series (sets of ATCs that are based on one theme but that are different are called series)

1. Ganapati.
Ganesha or Ganapati is one of the best-known and most widely worshipped deities in the Hindu Pantheon. His image is found throughout India. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations.Ganapti is considered as remover of Obstacles. Before starting a new things Ganesha is worshiped.Ganesha is considered to be the Lord of letters and learning. (More information on Ganesha is available here..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganesha)
I have used acrylic colours and created form of ganesha.

Artists Trading Cards!

The very basics of ATC:

As their name indicates, ATC are collectables, a brilliant idea born of the older sports-themed trading cards. The one rule that makes an ATC derives from their origins: the dimensions of the ATC must be 2.5"x3.5", or 64x89mm.

The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origin in Switzerland.

To this rule are appended a couple of conventions. First, an ATC mustn't be sold, only exchanged, as the whole essence of these tiny works of art is about artists meeting (by correspondence or online if need be) and exchanging their works, thus meeting many artists and getting exposed to many personal styles.
Second, on the back of each ATC the artist writes part or all of the following information: name, contact information, title of the ATC and number (1/8, 2/8...) if it's part of an edition. By definition ATCs are made in limited numbers, often no more than one of a kind.
Unique ATCs are called originals; sets of identical ATCs are called editions and are numbered; sets of ATCs that are based on one theme but that are different are called series. Don't be intimidated by the concept of small editions or originals: very few people are anal about this. What most collectors really want are cards that were made with care. Based on that, numbers are meaningless.

After gathering the basic information from internet i am ready with my first collection of Atcs. i will put them in next post.

I feel peaceful in the presense of blue colour.
