Untitled
 - As she strolls... she stops for a brief moment to contemplate, the morning light hitting her face and her coat on this chilly winter's morning. She is beautiful, intelligent, firey, naive and wears her heart on her sleeve... she is youth.

An old design I finally brought to life, something I won't be doing for while cos it was so hard to make an interesting painting with my old way of working, it like trying to read ur old writing, u find it somewhat clumsy or not fully developed. P.S. help me with a title if u want... thanx

3 heads
 - that's just a working title, design all done. Added colour and this is the final draft before I put it on canvass... If you are an artist you might be able to recognise the inspiration for the piece, if you cant I will reveal all in due time. I may edit a few tones here and there and maybe more cropping, but thats about it...

'Small Train Bridge'
  My first completed canvas of 2017, would've been completed earlier but I had other commitments and delays. A landscape of a bridge thats found between the borders of Botswana and South Africa at Ramatlabama... Enjoy!

Wine bottle Stillife'
- A somber stillife I drew a while back of one of my favourite Argentinian wines that I finally got down to painting on photoshop. I haven't produced or worked on a digital painting for almost 5 months while working with other medium. I enjoyed this one very much. This is just preparation for working on actual canvas... enjoy!

'Block 6 Mosque, Gaborone'
Block 6 Mosque, Gaborone' (30×40) - a picture which is an attempt by me to paint and document architecture around the city in which I reside in the form of landscapes, this being a painting of beautiful building in the form of a Mosque in a residential area near where I live. Inspired by many of the landscapes Van Gogh did during his time.

Hi Mbako, We are a design company that design Music CD Covers for entertainment organizations or music productions firms.

we have a client who has a tswana music artist who is bringing out their first Music CD.  they want us to design a cover for this artist.

We found your work on the internet and was wondering if we could use your Tswana Dancer Girl (OIL) for a front cover of the music CD.  We will off course mention your name and a link to your page in the credits on both the production company as well as the artist website and Music CD.

Would you be interested in something like this or have you got another idea.

Please contact us at +27815008888 or at opulenexus@gmail.com

Randomly found your gallery recently this morning, and I have to say you have some interesting stuff on display, man. I really dig your usage of color, and the overall style is good stuff.

If you'd ever like to talk art,
network, or whatever; let me know. I do have access to skype, aim, msn
messenger, yahoo messenger, etc. I look forward to a chance to hearing
from you.

wow, thats deep... I always take it personal when someone says they like your style... That means they relate to your philosophy. Thanx in spades!

I've never really been a skyper, but m an avid facebook and twitter user, mayb we can link up there. I would love to network and talk art, i love the preposition.
