Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This work is about acceptance in the face of disappointment. Wanting something really badly and then despite your best efforts it evades you and swims past. By receiving with gratitude what ‘little’ you do have, that rests beside you. He sits on a boulder representing his past.

Saren Dobkins has been painting and drawing since 1986.
Originally from Zambia, C.Africa she currently resides in Australia.My work is bold, passionate and based on personal experiences that are translated to express a state of mind, a feeling and a moment in time.
