An artist's Deja vu

I have already seen this! this has happened before! but where? when?

My mind constantly played these memory games with me on my recent trip to the Himalyas.

Flowing stream through a beautiful valley overlooked by majestic snow covered mountains..I have been here before,I have been here at this very place.I have stared at these mountains , I stood in front of this particular tree ! I was overwhelmed by these thoughts and then like a flash it came.. the realization , that I have painted this all long before I  even decided to take this trip.

It was as if my paintings have come alive.

These are some of the paintings I made a few months ago.I am amazed by  striking similarities between my paintings and the landscapes I saw on my trip:

                                             Painting 1: Totally fictitious Jungle scene



























Woods in Kufri


Painting 2: Misty forest

Tea plantation on the way from Baijnath to Dharmshala

Painting 3: Imaginary Lake


Dal Lake @ Mcleod Ganj

Painting 4: Tree on a hillside

On the way form Baijnath to Simla

Painting 5: Sunset

Sunset @ Simla

Painting 6: Valley View (work in progress)

Misty Mountains

Painting 7: Cottage in Valley

This experience has left me feeling empowered in a strange way.Now I will paint whatever I wish and wait for it to come true :)
