The Moroccan Rose Sellers

These three beauties, elegantly clad in patterned dresses, are carefully making their way through the Moroccan dusk. With baskets full of fragrant roses upon their heads; a trail of petals flutter behind them. The ground is an incredibly intricate weave of painted dots in blue, red & white tones, inspired by the gorgeously elaborate tile mosaics of Marrakech, & the beaded art of Cameroon's Bamileke people. 

This painting measures 30" x 30", & is available for sale SOLD.

Holiday Vignettes

A little glimpse into my Mediterranean holiday...It was truly a dream, filled with beautiful sights, culinary delight upon delights & loads of sunshine. I'm facing the studio with a renewed gusto, & hoping good things are to come! Except for the top portrait of my husband & I, all the photos were taken by my talented husband Na'im.
