Hello friends! Finally I am back and posting on my blog.First of all,I would like to thank all my fellow blogger friends for all your kind wishes and prayers.It was overwhelming and it did mean a lot to me.Thanks once again.
This work here is done in soft pastels.Never used them earlier but,after using oil pastels,I thought of trying my hands on soft pastels too.I admire soft pastel works of some artists.Initially was a struggle but some how managed it at the end.I hope to be more regular with my art from now onwards.It does take off your stress and helps you relax.


  1. Hey Yasha!! Its so good to see you posting and continuing with your art! Her skin tones are exquisite and the folds of her shawl are wonderful too with the lovely rich colours.Art therapy really is the best!

  2. Hello Yasha,
    it's good to see you posting again and to hear that you are committed to produce more art.
    Art can truly get your mind off of stress and worries, in fact it is used as therapy all over the world.
    Your art is so beautiful, and you are so talented, I was afraid you were going to stop for a while.
    Great work with the soft pastels! I'm always amazed by how you can switch between mediums and be always successful!
    Warmest regards,
