This is also done a month back, mid of october for Ganapathy homam at our home! Maa kolam (rice flour paste) drawn in our hall.
Tried Padma prakash maam's paper version on floor. I did this during Navarathri festival. Was not well for sometime, then guests, was not able to log on to ikolam at all. Sorry for the late posting!
There was pookolam competition in my office today.
My friends knew i draw kolams and pulled me into this. I told them I have never done pookolam but they wanted me to do. I drew the base design and we all did the flower arrangement consolidating all our ideas.
My 2 cents for the inspiration rangoli. I chose the second design.
I am little weak in drawing 'V' shapes. Have tried my level best to retain symmetry. :(.
Actually, I decided to quit as i had guests at home 2 full days and it was almost sunday evening. My husband only motivated me to do this on sunday night.
Waiting for your comments.............
Did this simple kolam for all my onam friends. Since it was a working day and MIL was not available, I could do only this much!
This is Padma prakash maam's dining table maa kolam redrawn in floor with kola maavu and colours.
Friends, how to get this red colour bright? If I dont mix kola maavu, the raw colour is so soft and I couldnt draw it....
I have sodhappified the four corners....still uploading!
Maa kolam done inside the compound for Krishna jayanthi.
It was raining on that day.
After i did this, it again became cloudy. So, before rain could splash, i took this picture before it dried properly
This is also done for Ganesh Chathurthi in a small cement platform.
