Which Road Will You Take?

I am sure we all have come up to cross roads at one point or the other in our sojourn on earth.

My Art Studio

Over the years I have used several places/spaces as a painting studio. I started off by using the corner of the room I shared with my twin sister in the late 90’s. I had just discovered Oil paints and I was painting like crazy. I have used the top of the kitchen table, the dining table and a garage. The places used could change but the art stays the same because the artist does not change.

Butterfly Series

I recently made a series of paintings of butterflies that caught my interest. They are part of the things that have kept my mind (and soul) busy. I have always been fascinated by the lightness and freedom of butterflies. They are so lightweight and yet very beautiful.

I enjoyed highlighting the differences that existed in their patterns. I also made Butterfly cards which are good unique gifts to give a loved one this valentine.

As time goes on I would be adding more of the butterflies here. Currently I am offering free shipping on all the items in my Etsy Shop there you would find different types of paintings made with different media and different sizes.

All the best.

Acrylic Painting: Man's Best Friend

Painting by Nkolika Anyabolu

This is another painting of a strange dog that came up to me and felt so safe and relaxed beside me as I stood at a bus stop.

I see a lot of beauty in these creatures and I sometimes wish all human beings can be like dogs. Dale Carnegie, in his book: How to win friends and influence people; used a dog to describe how we ought to be in other to win people over. And I couldn't agree with him more.

I love it when they wag their tails in joy and anticipation. And no matter what you do they will always come running to you anytime you get home....always happy to see you. Come to think of it: why can't we all strive to be like that? Wouldn't the world be a much better place to live in?
