study of dreams 2/ x 9" x 7.5"

oils on canvas
if interested please send your bid to
all bids considered:)

a small study that i have been working on over the past few days. rather tongue in cheek in every sense...


  1. nice. Did you under paint this in umber or to begin with or is that part of the pallet?

  2. hey! i know you!
    loose and expresive with lots of character,
    just the way i like it
    ...did i just spot some brushstrokes!?

  3. I like this, Rahina! It's a beautiful study of a beautiful woman.

  4. hi Gary, thank you. yes, i prepared the ground in raw umber and worked on that when it was dry. i don't always do that when i start a painting as often i like to work with a blank canvas and develop a feel of the subject by shifting paint around for about two days.

    hi rob, glad it's loose enough for you. to tell you the truth it was 4 days of going back and forth to get the appropriate emotional value i wanted to convey.

    thank you Robert for your visit and your thoughts on this painting. appreciate it:)

    thank you Linda, i'm glad you like it:)

  5. Hey Rahina - very Gerhard Richter! I like it very much.

  6. A very expressive study Rahina, I like it very much.

  7. A beautiful combination of control and preciseness where it matters, and free expressive brush work for emotional impact.

    A haunting image, like a backward glimpse of a lover through the rain-soaked window of a cab as it pulls away for the last time.

    So i will wish extra doses of Christmas cheer, and may the New Year bring you all you hope for, Rahina.

    And thank you so much for the interest and support you gave shown for my work this year.

    Warmest season's greetings
