STIGGY'S TRAIN by Christopher Nielsen aka "Dad"

This is a diptych I've been promising to paint for my son Stig ever since he was born around 20 months ago. Took me a while sorry buddy, but I finally got there! He actually gave the canvases a hug when got them which was pretty cool. It was a bit daunting trying to figure out what to paint to begin with but I concentrated on his main interests. That's his dog "Ocker" driving, along with his current obsessions, trains and oddly... the number 8. Hope you dig it Stiggy!


  1. Lovely work! Really enjoy the colours & characters here-that dog is too cute!
    Bet your son must've loved it.

  2. That's great Chris, I have the same issues for my kids, what to do, time etc, it will be a treasured piece by Stig I'm sure
