Hooray! How about I just order a print the old fashioned way?

I echo Sabrina's sentiment and suggestion! Although, let's be honest, I wouldn't give up the giveaway if I were so lucky. Wishing you many, many more blessings for your work!

I follow this blog eagerly so I was so happy and excited when I saw this post! I was particularly excited when I realised which painting it is. The significance to our family, my Mother in particular, would be tremendous :) Fingers crossed! And sending lots of love your way.

When Logan came to visit me in Tasmania in 2006 he showed me your beautiful paintings, I was awe struck and so completely inspired by them, its what motivated me to take a leap and apply to art school! Thank you for continuously sharing your God given gift and for being the inspirational best!!! Love, Malia Baggett

Mahfar said...

Shirin joon..... I love your paintings because they are expressive. They breath life and color and order, all the things I love. To have a painting by you is a dream, but just like dreams, I am happy to just close my eyes and imagine myself sitting in my reading room, full of books, the window open, the sun streaming in, and your paintings on the walls radiating joy!
Mahfar :)

If this were to arrive at my doorstep I would welcome it with loving arms. It would embrace my day in moments of quiet solitude. And since it is already a day of great emotion with the passing of Mrs Violette Nakhjavani it would also be a reminder of her strength & frangrance. All the best to you dear.

ams said...

Shirin, I love your work and am happy to hear prints are available.

Lydia Fazilat said...

For now my computer monitor is hanging on the wall, until I can replace it with the original :-)

What if I pulled Laura around in a rickshaw in downtown Calgary and sent you a picture? How about we just trade that picture for your print and call it a day.

Shirin said...

Beyond the simple blissing out and the sheer joy in the music of your colours, this is how your work always inspires me to feel:

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong."
(Audrey Hepburn)

Sending you love... Xx

Never has any artist's work so consistently made me happy. With simplicity, elegance and pure joy in every detail Shirin Saba's work brings forth memories of childhood happiness in a style that seems to touch the most ancient and timeless traditions of visual art. In her works one can see that rare and precious example of a unique and original style born of true discipline. Every piece is a treasure. The two paintings that we own are amongst our most prized possessions and have enhanced all the varied spaces that we have called home. This is visual art in its highest form.
