Any kind of house renovation work freaks me out. That is why I always try to avoid big scale work being done when I’m around. But this time I had no excuse and had to be at home when the floor work was being done. The workers took charge of the entire home except one bedroom and the adjoining bathroom. It was too cold outside and hence no chance of roaming out. For the ease and fast completion of work, those guys had my entire living room furniture including my internet setup moved. So I was left in one 12 * 12 bedroom with a laptop and a tablet for my company. But I was least interested in them without internet. Bored to death, I decided to dabble in Paint application available in Windows 8 on tablet. Here is the outcome. Now what should I term this, “Tablet Art”?

I have been travelling a lot since past few months. From the pinnacle of civilization – The New York City to the natural wonders of Rock City and Ruby falls. From Niagara Falls upstate to the Smokey Mountains down South. My last stop was the Smokies as they are generally known in this region. Frankly speaking, I was pretty much against the idea of going to the mountains during late autumn. My impression was that the splendid display of fall colors must have been over by now and there would be just endless piles of dried leaves and bare naked skeletons of trees. But I had to give up on public demand!! Finally we landed at the Sugarlands Visitor Center of “The Great Smokey Mountains National Park”. The dried up foliage in the surrounding area was ascertaining my perception of making a wrong choice. I was very disappointed with the thought that I am visiting my dream destination at the wrong time. Till that day Smokies was like a fairytale land for me. And why not? The Great Smokey Mountains are among the oldest mountains in the world, formed almost 200 – 300 million years ago. There is an interesting reason behind the name “Smokey”. We all know that trees breathe. But its live example can be seen when the mountain ranges are covered with thick foliage. The gases released by these trees keep lingering due to dense forest, high altitudes, cold weather and create a mystical foggy canopy over the region. Hence the name “Smokey Mountains”!!
