The joy of making a customised painting is one of discovering the boundaries of the other person's imagination. Though art is fluid but, it is a process. It has steps which lead to the final concept. You talk to the Client as if they are telling you a story. This can only happen if they trust you and respect you as a person. If it is purely a commercial transaction then it is bound to fail. It requires the love and care that a new born requires. When the story is told, it is absorbed, it is nurished and then it blossoms on the Canvas. The outcome is left to the spirit and the soul, the bliss of looking at the joy of the beholder is the ultimate prize for the artist.

SOLD - Thank You Shammi - The Reach out series signifies the origin and the end of everything, you just need to reach out to find the answers.
Sometimes I wake up in the morning and want to brush my teeth with the painting brush.
Paint my body in the name of having a bath.
My feet drag when I have to do domestic stuff,
I always feel I am short of time,
I always feel I am short of my canvas,
I always feel that I am going to run out of my paint soon
I keep thinking of the idea but when I get to the idea
I have to drop somebody or get somebody back hoime
The countless minutes and hours I paint with my mind in the train, the bus, while walking, its an endless process
As if I was churning one painting after the other
All I want to do is paint ... is that a bad dream
SOLD - Light the passion with fire SOLD this fire Painting Thank you Hayden. Feel the crackle of peace
The decision to choose the right painting for your home, starts with the very room that you stand in. Look around you will get clues of the colours, the themes and the size that you are looking. Match the colours of the furniture, the colour of the wall, the dimensions of the space and of course match it with your personality. The painting needs to be coherent to the surrounding, it needs to be a binder of the space. It can be used as a space divider, space enhancer, focal point or just the background in the room or space. Visualise the painiting sitting on your wall and you gazing at it, does it give you a good vibe. Do you connect with it ? Do you love it ? Do you hate it ? ...... Funny thing about a painting is that it will talk to you if the words are sweet and if it sounds like a song...then it's time to buy. It's all about improving your surrounding and enhancing it.
The shape of the wall needs to match with the shape of the painting. A rectangular wall needs a rectangular painting. A square wall needs a square painting. It is essential to look at the dimensions of the wall and then choose the painting size. One can break the empty space on the wall by putting 3 or 4 small paintings, they can be arranged diagonally or they can be arranged in a row or they can be arranged in a square formation. Match the space of the wall with the size of the painting to get the best effect. But there is no stopping lateral thinkers so keep doing your own thing.
