The Bloom

















He presents her with a single lotus-flower bloom to symbolize his pure intentions...Her dress is inspired by the exquisite courtesan dresses of the Mughal empire, with intricate gold detailing depicted in their illuminated miniature manuscripts. The ground is alive with detailed flowers and a vivid menagerie including peacocks, lions, elephants, horses & parrots. This pattern was greatly inspired by the colourful textiles of Gujarat, India. 
This painting measures 31.5" in diameter & is available FOR SALE. Don't be shy, inquire at shirinsahba @gmail.com.

Blue China


She is traveling by rickshaw; still the preferred quicker way to get around parts of the far East. The sky is a light & luminous jade, with a vivid pale cyan ground covered with Prussian-blue hued delicate foliage & birds...Inspired by my life in Beijing & the intricate beauty of hand-painted antique collections of fine china.
