#336: Alan RickMan

Last year, on this day we bid farewell to Alan Rickman. Many of us know him better as Severus Snape. Snape has been a beloved character to me in J.K. Rowling books as well as in the series of Harry Potter movies. His bravery, loyalty and undying love are second to none.  This is my small tribute to Rickman aka Snape through this ink drawing. We will miss you ... Always!
8.5 x 5.5 inch. Sharpie on paper

#335: "Chicken Chicken"

Click to bid:
I'm stranded on an island and the only thing that this island has an  excess of is roosters and hens. They are everywhere. Seemed like the right thing to draw. Lack of the right tools.

#331: Resolutions

It's time to share my 2017 New Year resolutions. I have two this year:

1) 2016 was about creating art for your homes. 2017 will be the year to create art for my home. I will paint large floral abstracts with the goal of adorning my home. These will be made available for purchase and be showcased at galleries. The goal is not to hog the art for myself, rather to create them with me not the client in mind. It is an experiment and I will look for continuous feedback and support from you. 
2) In 2017, I will continue to accept commissioned paintings of animals, people and classic cars in limited quantities. More about this later. 

Resolved to win 2017!

#328: Yukon

This beautiful puppy has crossed the rainbow bridge which makes this painting an extra special and thoughtful Christmas gift. It was commissioned, painted and delivered long before Christmas. I would love to paint all the commissions that come my way, but painting in oil requires a substantial amount of time, followed by drying time. This is why I prefer starting the commission 4-6 weeks before a hard deadline. Kindly keep this in mind when you think about ordering your next portrait.
SOLD - 6x6 inch. Oil on gessobord.
