This is my attempt to capture the profound love a mama has for her little one with it's limitless, pure & radiant joy. I've been more & more trying to encapsulate a mood or feeling with my use of colour, as I feel more inclined to paint from a place of spiritual emotion now that I am a parent myself. I created a very reflective gold leaf-like pattern in the ground inspired again by the mobiles & stabiles of the artist Alexander Calder. This painting is 31.5" in diameter & is

My mama's name was Golnar; it literally translates into "fire flower" in Persian, otherwise known as a pomegranate flower. That beautiful fruit filled with sweet rubies has always reminded me of her every since I can remember, & when she passed away I always took it as a good omen of wonderful things to come when I would come across them. You can imagine my surprise when I realized that the floors of my new home in Barcelona were tiled with pomegranates & flowers when I first moved in. This painting was inspired by her creative & optimistic spirit of adventure. I hope that you too will always see those sweet blossoms throughout your own life...This painting is available FOR SALE, all inquiries are welcome at shirinsahba @gmail.com.
