Portrait of Mistress Paris

ms_paris_mid

A visit to the chambers of Bedfordshire -based Mistress Paris provided the spark for the theme of this portrait. She told me of her love for the painting and sculpture of Michelangelo and so I developed her portrait from that.

Her chambers are called “The Oubliette” – a word used in castle architecture to denote a secret dungeon with an opening only at the top. So I showed a hand reaching up from this oubliette and Mistress Paris’s right hand reaching down to touch it, like God’s finger touching Adam in the Creation scene of the Sistine Chapel.
Her left hand holds a flayed skin as the artist depicted himself in the Last Judgement. Above hover two angels. The benevolent Angel of the Ecstasy holds a lamp to guide the reaching hand from the oubliette, while the Angel of the Agony smiles down malevolently with whip in hand.

Together they remind us of the “The Agony and the Ecstasy”, the biographical novel written 1961 by American author Irving Stone, and subsequently made into a film.

Portrait of the Alchemical Seductress

Headmistress Shahrazad of the Ritual Chamber in Toronto requested a commission inspired by “The Magician” , a Tarot card of the Major Arcana.

I tried to keep the same pose, as closely as possible, but it had to be adapted to show her dominance and relationship to her slaves so instead of a plain wooden board in front, a naked male forms a human table carrying chalice, collar and whips.
So the traditional roses and lilies were taken from below and run along the sides.
In the background a night-time Toronto skyline in storm, and lightning conducted through her purple “rod” through her body to her left hand.

 

Portrait of Mistress Elysia

For this pen-and-ink portrait of Scottish Mistress Elysia I leave it to the commissioner to give his own testimonial :-

“I knew pretty early on that serving Mistress Elysia was something very very special, something to treasure and that i had finally found the Mistress i had always dreamt of.

Since meeting her 9 months ago i have discovered what it feels like to be part of a true D/s relationship for the first time in my 19 years as a submissive.

Nothing in my life has ever given me the same feeling that i get from being her devoted slave so when i found out her 30th Birthday was this year i knew i had to get her something special, something one of a kind that that would last forever just like my devotion to her. 

Commissioning a piece of art from the incredible Sardax was an easy choice! I was already aware of his work and i knew that being presented with a Sardax drawing was among the most coveted gifts a Mistress could receive. I have never in my life been so excited as i was for the day of my session to arrive, to celebrate Mistress Elysia’s Birthday. I’m fairly certain Mistress loved her portrait as she sat staring at it with a smile on her face for around 15 minutes.

The detail in the drawing is simply amazing, from the first rough draft to the finished portrait was a straight forward process and Sardax was brilliant when it came to adding in a few little details personalised to Mistress Elysia and myself.

I’d like to thank Sardax for helping me make my Mistress’ 30th Birthday a special and memorable one. And most of all i’d like to say thank you to Mistress Elysia for allowing me to be your loyal slave and for the most incredible 9 months of my life.

Portrait of Madame Ingrid

madame_ingrid

The subject matter of this portrait of Madame Ingrid is dear to her heart – the western prairie, and in this scene she sits in a wooden shed in her traditional skirt and blouse offering her bare foot to a devoted admirer.

Here is a testimonial from her submissive who commissioned the artwork.

This is the second portrait I have commissioned for Madame Ingrid from Sardax.  Once again he has delivered a fantastic work.  Not only did he really wonderfully portray Madame Ingrid, he managed to capture much of the essence of our relationship.  I’ll never forget Madame Ingrid’s note to me as we looked at the final mock-up, “It’s so us!” 
This has already started us thinking about the next work. And next time, I too will make an appearance so She can always have me kneeling before Her. But that is for another day.
I also want to share a bit on the logistics.  Sardax makes this process really easy.  He listens to ideas, asks for pictures as a guide, and consults with you during the process.  
I can only encourage all admirers to really consider commissioning a work for your Mistress. It’s a great birthday or holiday gift. It’s easy to send gift cards and other tokens, but I don’t think anything expresses one’s devotion like a Sardax portrait.

Portrait of Mistress T. as Circe

mistress_t_mid

For this second portrait of Mistress T –see previous here– I was requested by the lady herself to give free rein to my imagination, which I of course enjoy. Though it is not quite as free as it sounds, as the subject matter still needs to please her, and so it can’t go totally out to the furthest reaches of my imagination.

I came up with the idea of a “Circe”, an enchantress who would transform her slaves into beasts with a tap of her luminescent cane.
It is night and the setting is a Mediterranean island.
To her feet one slave is half way to becoming a dog, worshipping and licking her long thigh-boots.
In a huge glass case, her “bull” slave – strong and well endowed – kneels obediently awaiting her needs. To the left the remnants of past slaves, hanging from branches or encased in glass jars.

Maybe one day she might release them, maybe not…Odysseus is far away.
