Portrait of She Controls 3


For this third portrait of She Controls I arranged to meet the lady herself at a London café and after making a direct sketch we had some discussion about the content.
We came up with this surreal idea of her slicing right through her submissive’s body from neck to groin disgorging banknotes and coins.  She holds him with her left hand and he leans back in ecstasy, with his right hand holding a credit card.
She Controls thrusts her gloved hand into the money and smiles out at us with a gleam of triumph in her eye. 

A literally visceral portrayal of the findom fetish.

Portrait of Mercenary Mistress



Texas-based Mercenary Mistress dressed in full leather teases the hogtied commissioner of the portrait with the tip of her boot and holds a rod which sends sparks of electricity down to him if his efforts to kiss it are insufficient.
Unusually the setting is the back of her own transit van, converted to a mobile dungeon. Through the curtains we can see the driving seat and controls of the van, and through the windscreen to the van itself – parked in a quiet street for evening fun!

Two new portraits of Mistress Ayn


This year I received two birthday portrait commissions for Mistress Ayn as her previous commission  had so delighted her.

The previous commissioner asked if it was possible this time to have…

a St Andrews cross with me dangling by chains
attached to my arms and legs like a puppet and to
represent my love I could be offering her
my heart

Though a real heart being offered would be possible to depict – anything is – it ran the risk of looking tasteless and even a bit cheesy. But I took the heart form and made a silver bondage frame to which he is attached, dangling as a puppet. A lever might allow it to be fixed into a set position or rotated as required. Mistress Ayn is ready with her bullwhip, dressed in riding breeches and thigh boots.


The second new portrait for Mistress Ayn from another commissioner shows her dressed in corset and RHT stockings dominating one of her slaves at her feet. While one thrusts deep within his mouth asphyxiating him, the other crushes down below, though not without leaving a tell-tale sign of excitement!

To receive two Sardax paintings on one birthday is an unusual and unexpected event!



Portrait of Mistress Ariana Chevalier


As befits her name, this portrait shows New York Mistress Ariana as equestrienne, in jacket, gloves and breeches, training her pony-boy at a warm exotic location, maybe a hacienda. He is harnessed in a bizarre horse-head costume and ready to pull her pony-trap, with another just to the side.

But is he merely a pony-boy?
Surely this one is a unicorn? And rare enough to be the unicorn that has commissioned this painting!

Portrait of Goddess Virgin


This depiction of Goddess Virgin started many months back with a thought of a road of banknotes thrown down for a mistress by adoring admirers. (Yes they aren’t the right colour for banknotes, I know)
The idea then developed into a road paved with gold, and by extension to the Yellow Brick Road from the Wizard of Oz.
Then how would this Goddess look in a Dorothy costume, made subtly sexy by black leather gloves, a basket containing chains and collars etc.
In her right hand a riding whip , in her left that ever ubiquitous lifeline – the mobile phone.
Following her some way back struggling to keep up – a human ‘Toto’. The Lion looks on with stiff tail but the Tin man and Scarecrow are just resting in the field, having a quiet smoke -too exhausted to notice!

Portrait of Mistress Scarlet


This is a very personal commission.
All Sardax commissions are personal and unique, of course, but this one especially so.

Mistress Scarlet of Glasgow is depicted here arriving back from a visit to a faraway country indicated by the flags on the suitcases being loaded by one of her maids.

She has just entered a hunting lodge somewhere in the Scottish Highlands and takes off her coat and gazes down at us commandingly. To greet her, another of her devoted maids (the commissioner herself) has been strapped in extremely uncomfortable bondage to present a welcoming glass of her favourite relaxing drink. How long can he hold it for her? How long has he been waiting?

On the wall of the lodge there are paintings that allude to Mistress Scarlet’s personal and professional lifestyle – a visit to the gymnasium, spa and one of her sessions whipping another maid.
Beneath that an opera programme and some of her favourite books to while away the secluded hours -and isn’t that one of Sardax “Venus in Furs” there?

For this commission I was fortunate enough to meet the mistress herself on a trip to London and made a sketch from life. Being able to draw the subject directly helps of course to get a better idea but is by no means essential. For most photos and even video clips are more than enough reference.
