Holiday Activity #3

Although the subject matter is set in the Mediterranean, the simplicity of this painting was inspired by Japanese art & design. The layers of paint are quite translucent to evoke the mood of calm water. It is quite large (39" in diameter) & is currently hanging in our room, which really brightens my mood because its circular shape makes it feel like I'm looking out of a boat window on a clear summer day. Holiday anyone?

This painting is for sale: inquiries welcome at shirinsahba @
