A Little Fox Ponders Life

Inspired by the intricate inlay work of India & Morocco. Each leaf & flower in the ground resembles a detailed, semi-precious work of inlay, & possesses a reflective, pearly glow when it catches the light. In contrast, the sky is luminous & gem-like with it's deep shade of turquoise which melts into a cyan-blue. The little fox in the ground is looking at a delicate green-leafed tree, & perched on top of the tree, safely & out of reach, is an exotic lime green bird with black wings peering back at the fox in curiosity.

This painting measures at 80 x 100 centimeters, & is available for sale. Please feel free to inquire at:      shirinsahba @ gmail.com

Devil's In the Details

I've been busy as a bee in the studio! I had an interview with a design magazine this past week along with another photo shoot of the home (of course I will share once it comes out!)...A few visual inspirations while you await new work: 1. Can't wait to order this book by the talented Maryam of Marrakesh. 2. Just watched Pink Panther with Peter Sellers for the millionth time, how much do I adore Princess Dala? 3. This is where I wish to be right now, but alas, it will have to wait!
