The Pedlar by Himmapaan The Pedlar by Himmapaan
The Pedlar, ACEO.

Watercolour and gouache on Arches hot pressed watercolour paper, 140lb/300gsm; 89 x 63mm (3.5 x 2.5 inches).

The full view is much larger than the original.

There are some in-progress pictures here: [link]

~Sir-Pumpkinhead was inspired to write these wonderful lines, which I've asked to be included here :D:

He sells happiness in pills,
sadness in incense,
life in colored bottles
and death in grim essence.

Wow, what a cool picture! He's totally a "mysterious man in a pub" type of person.

Reminds me of James C Christensen's work.

I just love it :) and because it's a miniature makes it much more charming :heart:

:nod: When I feel inspired by DA images I like to write a stanza or two (and only to people I know).
Sure! it'd be a great honor for me ^_^

Ah! :excited: Thanks so much for adding my words :D I'm afraid you now tainted a perfectly good description with them, though :giggle:
And I'm happy to see you sold it! :dance: Why don't you try selling more of your originals through here (or even ebay). There are a couple of your pieces I'd love to purchase, in fact :nod: And I'm sure your watchers would like them too.

Nonsense! It has been elevated by your words! :giggle:

Thank you! I'd been hoping to do more ACEOs to sell, time permitting. so far I have only managed two (this and Une Fée ^^;). Perhaps there may be something you'll like in future. :D
