  "In to the storm" is an expression of standing resilient in the face of an upcoming storm.. Imaging a storm rolling in, so strong it shakes everything, you feel so scared.  Understanding the storm gives you the strength to face it, remember that it will pass. Thunder is nothing more then a change in temperature and pressure.. 
Take the time to observe the changes in color of the water, the movement of the clouds and the wind as it all comes together in perfect harmony right before it all falls back to the natural order of things .."Water is the driving force of all nature.. Leonardo da Vinci"

Fly Over The Palm

In this piece, my intention was to capture one of the incredible activities offered in Dubai, sky diving with the view of the Palm Jumeirah in the background.
 
As I started adding the people to the picture, the idea evolved in to showing the cosmopolitan nature of Dubai, through the sky divers themselves. From left to right, each diver represents the diversity of the people living in Dubai, all these characters combined together having something in common… 
 
The Texture of the painting, the harmony of the colors, and the view of the palm from the top all these elements combined together to form a unique Dubai inspired piece...

This painting is all about that, the details captures the angle of the legs in both canvases, stretching of the feet underneath the shoes, the veins and bone structure, the design on ‘her’ shoes, ‘his’ Blackberry, shoes, tie and pen.
