Better Atmospheric depth

As with any learning.  There are moments when you understand something better and deeper.  This time it was aerial perspective and atmosphere.

Post-It Note Portrait #1.

I was doodling on a Post-It note when I thought of creating a series of Post-It Note portraits.  All that  was used was a mechanical pencil, an eraser and a Post-It note pad, Simple!.  I am starting my first sketch with the portrait of the lovely and talented Pakistani Actress Sarah Khan.


Tiny Gems

How do you feed an obsession?  By doing more of it of course.  Here are a series of 3”x3.5” landscape.

Here is a Zoomed-in View of the paintings.  The weave of the linen is showing through.  I have tired to remove them a little.


Sea, Trees and Rocks

So, the ideas was to play with aerial perspective and texture of landscapes.



“The Road to Infinity”

What attracted me to this scene was how the background mountain loomed over and dwarfed the foreground mountain, making the foreground mountain look like a mole hill.  I loved the drama.  Enjoy!




The possibilities with one simple orange, as a still life, is numerous.  One can do many things with the arrangement of the peel to come up with various compositions.  I also used this to practice a live presentation/demo on Instagram Live.  I had completed most of the painting and then decided to put the final touches on live video.  I am planning to do a simple demo tutorial soon on Instagram Live.  After all the best way to learn is through teaching.  Enjoy!

Some new paintings

Here are a couple of landscapes and a portrait.  Nothing much to tell.  One must paint often and practice with a purpose.  Thank you for viewing.  Enjoy.

A touch of Providence

A portrait of a beauty.  Oil painting on linen.

To paint men is practice, but women inspiration, and I stand by it 🙂


A beautiful Red Family.

Ceramic, metal, glass and any hard shiny objects are my favorite things to paint in still life.  I bought this red teapot set (along with another set) from a farmers market, it was to cute to be ignored.  I Absolutely loved painting it.







Therefore, She

An Ebony beauty in Oil.  5”x7” on Canvas.  Some faces are meant to be painted and this full lived beauty was no exception.  Enjoy.
