I would stop time to stay with you

previous painting ........ next painting

This painting was commissioned as a donation to raise money for cancer charity. The painting was auctioned and was sold for a very respectable amount. The painting hold a very special place for me, and was the first time I felt I was able to genuinely use my art to help a worthy cause. The experience of painting this was very moving, and to know the painting is in a good home where it will genuinely be appreciated for what I attempted to convey in the work is even more emotional.

It depicts a small boy on a roof flying a kite with a pink ribbon at sunset, and touches upon the feeling of having lost someone close to you. I am unable to read more into the work as I was very fluid with the image and allowed it to come through without too much conception. I am very proud of this piece.
