The Flower Sellers of Kashmir no.2

I'm excited to introduce a second in the series...A Kashmiri flower-seller ferries an eager visitor through a dream-like scene of floating flowers. Inspired by the Balinese carved doors of Ubud; the gold jewel-like flowers are inlaid with intricate details of amethyst, emerald & sapphire. They are reflective & catch the light differently in various part of the day to create an illuminated glow.

Chickaboom Afternoon (& some words of gratitude)

I don't often take the time to thank you, my dear readers, patrons & clients for all that you do in supporting my work. When you have shared, followed or bought my paintings, you are not only doing those actions, but you have allowed this dreamer to dream, to create, to continue doing what I adore doing the most. For this, I send you oceans of gratitude! Now a little bit about this painting: 

Lounging around on a lovely mediterranean summer's afternoon, these two have a lot to catch up on! With the sky above an opalescent blend of soft blues, pinks & yellows, their laughter mingles with the gentle swaying of a sea of foliage. This painting measures 30" x 30" & is available FOR SALE. All inquiries are welcome at shirinsahba
