baghdad flourishing 1

today's painting is the first in a series of acrylic paintings on canvas that i'm taking to the seattle arab festival to sell. this one is 10 x10 inches, and is inspired by an illustration done for saudi aramco world magazine last summer. the subject matter is baghdad, but instead of baghdad destroyed, it is a vision of baghdad flourishing once again. this painting is for sale. please email me if you're interested in buying this or one like it.

autumn woman

it is not even august yet, but hints of autumn are already in the air. the light is changing. the air is cooler; days are becoming shorter. this is how it is in the pacific nw.

so the use of the gilded autumn leaf as a starting point for this painting...another in my series.

with the golden yellow of summer, hinting of fall to come.
