Always with Papa

This is the day & age to celebrate the men in our lives who have decided to go against the grain of society & be ever-present in the lives of their families, often sacrificing everything for quality time...These are the men that will redefine true masculinity & will help raise the children of the future in a beautiful world wherein the equality of men & women will no longer just be a dream, but will become a reality. Inspired by the vivid & surreal colours of North Africa...This painting is 31.5" in diameter & is available FOR SALE. All inquiries welcome at shirinsahba @gmail.com.

A Cactus Kind of Love

​It's a unique kind of love that appreciates cacti more than the standard bouquet of roses...​
After my summer spent in the cactus gardens of Barcelona as well the surreal desert of Arizona, I felt I needed to explore my love of succulents & cacti further...In Arizona I especially fell under the spell of the Opuntia macrocentra, a particularly gorgeous specimen of prickly pear cactus​ that happens to be lavender in colour! ​
This painting is on a circular stretcher canvas that is 31.5" in diameter, & is available for sale SOLD.
