SILVER JUBILEE OF MY ART JOURNEY
Friends in 1989 , when I were in class eighth . I were joined very first a art workshop for a one month . that was a painting workshop in holiday time of my school . there I were joined to a senior artist of traditional Rajasthani painting ( Pichhwai Kala ) Kishanghar painting School style . Pichhwai kala is a cloth painting it is very popular in Indian Art .its very famous painting is BANITHANI Painting .
But for me that art and that’s style was very new . first day my Guide was told me about art medium ,in the list of art medium i were noted to poster color & Brush , cloth ,gum, hardboard and a color palette , my guide was Brahmin just like me it mean we are vegetarian people. Ha ha. But for color palette he told me “ yogendra you will buy to egg storage palette , because that palette have big boll and in a one palette cost you can get two color palette .
I were very upset for his color palette talk , because my culture was not allowed to me for buy to egg palette because I am belonging to a Brahmin family we are not eat to eggs or none vegetarian food . when I said it to my guide then he did got angry on me and said to me you will buy only egg palette not to eggs ..ok
I were went to market with my father and I were buy the egg storage palette . I were felt very shame on me because I were buy a egg palette when I am vegetarian or a Brahmin .
But in that one month art workshop I were used that egg palette for mix to color and I did created many colorful Pichhwai kala painting on cloth by process of traditional Kishanghar art Style .
After that I were used that egg + color palette in my 11and 12th art education in year 1992 to 1994 . that color palette was lived with me in my B.F.A. fine art education In Rajasthan School of Art . there many classmates were joking on my Brahmin Identity because I were using color palette or that palette was egg storage palette ..ha ha..but I were noticed to my art not to my classmates comments .there four year continue I were used to that color palette in my art education work .
In 2003 once again I were joined to master of Fine Art education then I were again painted to my art concept by water color or poster color in wash and tempera style . so I were used to same color palette yes egg storage palette.
After master I were went to Jawahar Kala Kendra Jaipur in year 2006 , for freelancing art exercise , there in graphic studio I were painted water color or acrylic color on big size papers so again I were used that same color palette yes egg storage palette . in JKK I were painted continue three year 2006 to 2008 .
In 2008 I were came at my own studio in Bikaner . here I were painted to myself by acrylic color so my same color palette with me in my art tool box. 2008 to till 2009 I were painted in color or I were used to color palette but after 2009 , I were stop to color painting of myself I did created drawing in B & w . so I were not used to my first color palette . In mid of drawing I were done some big drawing then I were used to same color palette ( Egg Storage palette ) ..ha ha..
Last month of year 2014 once again my art vision moved in color side after a long gape . I can say after 1475 drawings I were came on color mode from my art vision it was natural . so color was needed same format of color painting , in that case I were again putout to my water color , poster color or color palette ( egg storage palette ) on my desk and I were started again colorful painting of myself by support of my first color palette .ha HA

I know you are thinking why I am saying again and again same words about my Color palette , so my friends I want to tell you , I have completed 25 years of my art journey or that’s live record is this egg storage palette , I did used it for my color mixing. I were converted that’s design concept by way of art or by guide line of my art guide. Ha ha..
Last 25 years to this color palette oh sorry this egg palette is with me , when I am touching to it then it is recalling to me my first day of joining of visual art Journey . I am watching to me in year 1989 with this egg palette . for me this is a historical palette of my art journey or history. I can say it is very important for me because my lots of art memory is connect with this color palette .
This year is silver jubilee year of my art journey or about this egg storage palette , I were used it in art . it is telling me my art journey or that’s story when I use it about visual art. This palette know me very well because I shared my time in art and I am using it about color mixing to last 25 years in my art journey.
