@rinapatelartist at John L. Scott for the Oct 11th Art Walk. My paintings are a reflection of me. Painting is a freedom to express in color, shape, line, and objects, for which I don’t have words. When I paint, I experience the carefree life of my childhood, the love, joy and pain of being a mother, the ups and downs and the curves the life throws at you. It gives me time to nourish my soul, and be kind to myself, and to accept that I am good, as I am, not perfect but good. I always paint with an intention of happiness, love and joy.Painting has been part of my life since childhood, but as responsibilities of adulthood took over, I made excuses of lack of time and I lost touch with my art, but expressed my creativity with Photography, Crochet and crafts. A few years ago when my twins were very little, I was telling them that they can be anybody they want when they grow up and one of them asked me “Mama what do you want to be when you grow up?” and I said Artist. It was a wakeup call for me, to NOT wait till I retired to do what I have been wanting to do all my life, so I picked up my paint brush and stated painting again and it was one of the best decision I made. I am an intuitive abstract painter, I like to paint abstract as it allows me to express my interpretation of what I am seeing, hearing and feeling, and at the same time it also gives the viewer freedom to put their own interpretation from their perspective.I was born and raised in India and came to the US to complete my education as an adult. Influences of India play a big part in my painting in the form of color, oh how I love color! Just like India is a big mix of diverse cultures, my paintings are diverse and colorful. When I am not painting, I am a Mama to elementary age twin boys and an accountant. Using both sides of my brain keeps me sane #wsartwalk #artwalk #artistsoninstagram #artist #westseattle #westseattlejunction ... See MoreSee Less
