Short stories on relationships

Romantic relationships, especially the complicated psychology between men and women have always fascinated me, hence the collection of short stories I’m working on. I’ve often wondered why women blame other women instead of sorting out their relationship problems with their unfaithful partners. In trying to understand the roots of this complex issue, I found an interesting article that analyzes the situation in a very constructive way.

On another note, I was quite taken by the haunting beauty of 
Meryl McMaster's digital print Anima at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal.

Fall in Montreal

Montreal is so beautiful in the fall. Its sidewalks strewn with colourful leaves along tree-lined streets in the Plateau area where I stayed. And what a treat to speak french with friendly Montrealers in the charming cafés, shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

I was there to promote my books, and feel very grateful for the positive response. My heartfelt thanks to friends, relatives, and all the people who welcomed me there with their kindness and generosity, and their enthusiastic support for my books.

Also enjoyed an inspiring photo outing in Old Montreal with some friends. It had rained the previous day, and the air was fresh and crisp as the sun and the clouds took turns to play with the changing moods we captured.

Handpainted silk scarves at Craft Ontario Shop

Still writing away but it feels so good to paint on silk again. I just love mixing colours with fluid brushstrokes, and let the creative instincts take over. 

I've recently delivered some hand-painted silk scarves to the Craft Ontario Shop at 1106 Queen St. West, near Ossington Ave. If you're interested in checking them out or would like to buy original hand crafted gifts made by Canadian artists, it's the best place in town. 

A few close up samples of my work
