My Earliest Painting that i sold.....
This was Sold through my etsy site....!!!
Earlier i had a varied genre, when i began painting, now i just get back to what lures me the most, my style in my series pertaining to Semi Abstracts or Abstracts...!
For Those who wish to know the meaning of a Semi Abstract ~ pertaining to or designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art.
Sold Many Buddha Paintings earlier too, some through my sites, some through exhibitions....
I don't know whether it's colors or genres that got me attracted then...later i did a series on Abstractism of a Peacock feather, as i am fascinated with these colors and sold quite a few of these again through my sites and my exhibitions...

About The Artist : Rukshana derives inspiration for her work from nature and the world around her, nature in its own self has always absorbed her expression in its beauty, its serenity and its solitude that transcends feelings beyond mortal boundaries. For Rukshana beauty holds no form, she endeavors to capture and create its essence on her easel.
Words by Rukshana...I am a perpetual student of learning, still a child, learning, un-learning and re-Learning, that quest for knowledge will forever remain. Most of my artworks speak volumes on eulogy about Creation. I also Love Music, and am totally lost in there which also inspires me to paint.My Art Works are Semi Abstract, are eco-friendly and they speak volumes about nature and environment. My Medium is Mainly Charcoals, with Texture and Acrylics. I feel my Paintings depict new Beginnings, a chance to re-live in the beauty and bask in the glory of nature...!!! I am totally blessed to have this opportunity to express myself through paintings. I love it when people say my artwork enhances their lives.”
Lines from an Art Critic : "Her subject is never a story but a lyrical and takes you in a world of fantasy which is sublime in nature."
Whilst Viewing her Art-works turn on all your senses and let life make its impact on you.
Artists Statement : " I prefer to fill my canvases with my love, emotions and energy so viewers can enjoy it for many years later & also Wish to be remembered as an Artist who always SMILED...!!!"
