Aerial Bliss

From my series of paintings celebrating parenthood with all it's pure expressions of joy & love. Inspired yet again to capture raw emotions & moods in the same tradition as the masters of colorfield painting who inspired me so in childhood; such as Berkowitz & Rothko to name a few. The shapes in the ground have a gold-leaf quality & change colour in different times of day depending on how they catch the light.
This painting is 31.5" in diameter, & is available FOR SALE. Feel free to inquire at shirinsahba @gmail.com.

Beyond The Hibiscus

Respect for ancestors & spiritual tradition is an inescapable part of daily life in Thailand. Even in the most remote of villages you can see the little post box size "spirit houses" they place outside of each home in brightly painted colours & gold where people lay fresh offerings daily for their relatives. I tried to capture the tropical fragrance & natural beauty that I saw in that sacred land. Temples are glittering in the distance & the locals are often dressed so beautifully even for the day to day business as usual. 
This painting is 31.5" inches in diameter, & is available for sale SOLD.
