MUHAMMAD ALI

DSC01166

Muhammad Ali was an American Olympic and professional boxer and activist. He is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures of the 20th century. I refer to him as the world’s greatest. This is my tribute painting of Muhammad Ali depicting his favorite saying; “I float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”. This is my tribute painting of the famous boxer Muhammad Ali. Its a 36″ x  48″ painting  done with oil paint on canvas, and it is available at my online store at http://artbyikenna.storenvy.com I also included a time lapse painting process of this painting below;

Aphrodisiac

DSC01008

Chocolate Melanin Caramel,,,,,, “Aphrodisiac” ,,,,she’s a candy. At first when i did this, it was nothing more than a beautiful figurative painting. A month later i did a little sketch while having a few shots of wine, i was a little bit tipsy and slept off. After a little while, i woke up looking at this painting directly in front of me. Mind you, my eyes were still sleepy and unclear. But for some reason, i thought the woman in the painting was real , it looked like she winked at me and moved her lips like she whispered something. It just didn’t feel right, so i had to wipe my eyes to see clearly. A of course its the same old painting, so i laughed at myself and said “so this wine made me think my painting was flirting with me”. The moral of this short story is that sometimes it takes a certain situation to determine a perfect name and meaning to certain works of art. Have a blessed day people.The original painting is available at my online store at http://artbyikenna.storenvy.com
