Happy Birthday, Jyoti Bhatt

Jyoti Bhatt, born in 1934, celebrated a birthday yesterday. Wikipedia describes him as "an Indian artist best known for his modernist work in painting and printmaking and also his photographic documentation of rural Indian culture". WikiArt has examples of his striking work.

I see a teapot in the piece at the top of the post and am sharing it with the participants in T is for Tuesday hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth.


I used an old Pick-a-Stick challenge (extend, add lace, use a map) to inspire this card (outside first, then the inside):

The prompts for these were Purple and Green:

This is a pair:

suitable for the T Stand for Tuesday gathering.

These were just random:

Both of these were inspired by the prompt Vehicle:

Clean and simple, and two colors:

but I don't think I had enough paint on the brush for the "clean" part. These little ATCs take more paint than I'd have thought.

These used backgrounds I made using prompts I found online:

The prompt for the left background was Echo and for the right Chaos.


That card itself is shaped, with a rounded top.

This card:

uses a background created using an Orange prompt.


  1. good morning-I am loving your atc's again this week-looks like fun times in the craft room
    enjoyed the artist you shared-loved the tea cup
    Happy T hugs Kathy

  2. looking at the painting now enlarged-I see several tea pots and cups-very cool

  3. I saw the teapot also in that quilted art piece. I like your Round art - again I think it's a very good life motivation piece.

  4. Wonderful, colorful eye candy. I like under Random how the green stick figure is in the same position as the grass. Happy T Day

  5. WOW - your creative ATCs are simply stunning! Happy T-Day!

  6. oh my, you are really hooked on atcs... wonderful samples again this week!

  7. Fun ATCs, especially the blue and white ones. Happy T Day, Valerie

  8. Wonderful artwork. You've been very creative this past week. Happy T-Day!

  9. I can definitely see the color and cultural influence of Jyoti- gorgeous painting! of course i am thoroughly enjoying all your art cards too- such great prompts you have illustrated. of course, the "sail through your day' is my fave this week:) Happy T day!

  10. Your ATCs are wonderful! I do enjoy when you feature artists, but you had me addicted to watching westerns! Now, while I craft I watch an old western like the Jimmy Stewart or Randolph Scott ones. Happy T Day

  11. Great artwork on your ATCs again, I found them quite small to work on but I think I tried to put too much detail on a small space!
    Enjoy your week

  17. Wow, what a creative week you had! I loved seeing all your art this week. They feel a lot like that cool piece by Jyoti Bhatt you showed. I love that too. I hope you had a great T day. Hugs-Erika

  18. What a lovely painting by Jyoti Bhatt. The dots remind me of Australian aboriginal art. I love the colours and the whole composition.
    Your ATCs are fun. It is great that you follow the prompts.
    Happy (belated) T-Day,

  19. 17 ATCs in one week!? I'm really impressed. Every one of them is special. You're a very talented artist, D. I love seeing your work now that you're not "hiding your light under a bushel"(grin).

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  20. From what I saw in WikiArt Jyoti Bahtt's work is very interesting! Love the piece you show here! Once again your ATCs are brilliant - especially love the one with the camper van! Belated Happy T Day! Chrisx

  21. OMGoodness, I am SO far behind. I can't believe I need to catch up this much. My sincere apologies. I LOVE that painting. It had so many wonderful coffee and tea references. It was a perfect find for that T post.

    I really LOVED some of your ATCs. Of course, the tea and coffee were great and the tea was hilarious. Possibly my other favorite was "Between." Great balance and wonderful coloring.
