A Grander Giveaway!

Hi lovely people: I promised I would do another international giveaway this year, so here it is. This time I'm giving away, not a print, but an original painting. It's titled Raindrops & measures 40 cm x 40 centimeters. I worked with overlapping colours & even some shimmering silvers so to mimic raindrops catching multi-coloured lights on a cool day.

This giveaway IS NOW CLOSED

  6. This painting, like all of yours, is simply amazing and for some reasons makes me think of rainy days in Haifa. I don't really know why, except that I always felt that certain aspects of the city, just like the hill, were even more beautiful against the rainy sky.

  7. Dear Sahba,
    Your paintings remind me of your mother's beautiful drawings on Vargha's children books. I can feel peace, simplicity, pure beauty, and love in all your paintings. I hope to see you in near future.

  116. Shirin Saba, I love you paintings they take me on a journey of search, love and joy.

    "All Art is a gift of the Holy Spirit. When this light shines through the mind of a musician, it manifests itself in beautiful harmonies. Again, shining through the mind of a poet, it is seen in fine poetry and poetic prose. When the light of the Sun of Truth inspires the mind of a painter, he produces marvellous pictures. These gifts are fulfilling their highest purpose when showing forth the praise of God." – attributed to 'Abdu'l-Bahá by Lady Blomfield, The Chosen Highway
