suspicion at the gelataria

Let me introduce you to my trusty Moleskine. He was given to me by my dear friend Keyvan Mahjoor who just happens to me one of the most talented artists I've ever known... It is in it's golden pages that I record everything from conspiracy theorists to cafe regulars.

of gingham & spring

Do forgive me for the long silences, it has been a busy season of projects, commissions, canaries to feed and orange trees to rehabilitate (don't make me explain), it can be ever so difficult to keep up as you yourself must know so well!
Spring is here & I smell the coming of summer just around the corner bringing with it a mood of nostalgia...It seemed high time I sewed myself a gingham tablecloth out of fabric from here, so I finally did, & I'm happy to report it has been getting quite a lot of use.

the daydreaming maharaja

Although I have met a Maharaja or two on rare occasion in the past, I can't really say I've met a daydreaming one...This piece is a continuation of the illuminati series.

flowers on the mind

Yes, I promise there will be more flowers coming up in my new work (for those who inquired as to whether there will be more in the series "The Flower Sellers of Kashmir"). I have been immersed in flowers & am sharing with you a photo I took this summer of the most fragrant Mediterranean roses my nose has ever been blessed with.
