Mama Draws...

Another anniversary of your passing into the next world has come & gone mama...When I see my little boy's love of drawing (a marker is the first thing he requests when he opens his eyes), I am reminded of your love of it & all the magic you would create in this earthly life...I like to think you are still drawing all that you see...& what magnificent & illuminated drawings they must be! I cannot possibly imagine mama...

Escaping The Souk

Whizzing past the kaleidoscope of colours & patterns that compose the Medina of Marrakech, these two are off on an adventure! 
Inspired by my very recent travel through Morocco; I have always found the intense beauty of North Africa to be deepy moving..​.I made sure to include all the details I especially loved about the souk, down to each patterned djellaba (pointy hooded robes) & beautiful babouches (pointed leather slippers).
This painting is a 30" x 30" canvas stretcher & is available FOR SALE. All inquiries are welcome at shirinsahba!
