Out for Fresh Air

This painting is for my cousin Jameel. It tells the story of our grandfather (in the plane) & his grandfather (walking on the horizon). Both died young, & both were incredibly lovable personalities. My grandfather was a pilot & you can see him standing on the left of this old photo of him & a friend. I have always felt a special bond with him, one that cannot separate us by time & space, as I'm sure his children feel, & now his grandchildren...
p.s. a look at my incredibly talented sis-in-law's new photography blog: samimi-extremie photography.


  1. I love your blog. I love your stories and recollections. How you capture such beautiful thoughts through art continues to amaze me.

    You're one of a kind, Shirin!
