Chickaboom Afternoon (& some words of gratitude)

I don't often take the time to thank you, my dear readers, patrons & clients for all that you do in supporting my work. When you have shared, followed or bought my paintings, you are not only doing those actions, but you have allowed this dreamer to dream, to create, to continue doing what I adore doing the most. For this, I send you oceans of gratitude! Now a little bit about this painting: 

Lounging around on a lovely mediterranean summer's afternoon, these two have a lot to catch up on! With the sky above an opalescent blend of soft blues, pinks & yellows, their laughter mingles with the gentle swaying of a sea of foliage. This painting measures 30" x 30" & is available FOR SALE. All inquiries are welcome at shirinsahba @gmail.com.

Bali Holiday

 Sorry for the silence over here on the blog. We've been exploring in & around Bali, for the cold month of February, & now I've returned to the studio & back in the swing of things. It was something of a dream to go to a place where so many talented artists reside & so much beauty exists...

Her Mind Runs Wild as Horses

This is a painting I've been wanting to paint for a long time; the kind of imagery that lingers in my dreams. A multitude of wild horses sweep through a meadow, accompanied by a few elegant warrior equestrians in all their elegant royal attire. Each horse is unique & with it's own personality, based on various Mughal Empire paintings I've studied over the years. I've always been riveted by miniatures of horsemen galloping, trotting & tumbling through fields, battles & elaborate ​royal processions.  This painting measures 30" x 30" & available for sale SOLD.
