Amy in yellow skirt. Another drawing from one of my favourite sessions. When I taught figure drawing, I picked my models with finesse. I know well how important having a good model is, in creating good drawings. Some sessions, the models where so good, I couldn't resist sitting and drawing along with my student. This was one of those sessions. .

P.s. This April, 20-22, visit my home to see some of my figure drawings. Ads to come. .

The urge for drawing is not leaving me this weekend. Need to start again. An older sketch from a session I was teaching few yrs back. My amazing friend Amy has modeled for these Degas like poses. .

Jan 17, 2018. Miniature No.58. "Closed Eyes"
.
And they don't even look, and they surly don't dare to like. They want to ignore. They close their eyes. They walk with closed eyes, work with closed eyes, live with closed eyes. But maybe one day, they will find the courage, to re-open their eyes. . .

New term, fresh minds, lots of potential! This is my first class of all girls at UWO. I wonder what can be different with only girls in the class. Also, I am curious as to why we get more girls in a design class? And wondering if we get more boys say in a business class?
Here is to a productive term with these young minds 🤗

Jan 09, 2018. Miniature No.57. "Just like Rupi said"
.
Somewhere in the randomness of social media, in between the posts on my Instagram feed, I fell in love with beautiful words of @rupikaur_ and I absorbed them to make them mine. She wrote: .
"...thank god you left. i would not be the empire I am today if you had stayed." .
.
And I am yet to become an empire. But as you left, the worry left, the many episodes of stomachache left. The whole cabinet of medicine that I hauled around to deal with the pain left. It hurt so much to peal you off me. It was like removing a velcro stuck to my eyeball. I was lost for a while. It took a while to find my outline. But it was worth it. And now, the worry of being wrong all the time is gone. The stomachache is gone. l can breath deep again and say: just like Rupi said, thank god you are gone.

Thank you Rupi Kaur

Dec. 10, 2017. From Meditation Miniature series, No.2. "Colours of Innocence (version 2)"
.
Tiny bubbles, a plunge, fresh water, light, air ... I’m alive and breathing. Living through these paints and shapes and layering them over each other. Waiting to see what happens; the excitement of discovering new ways! Why is a sheet of paper or
a white canvas so intimidating at first? Isn’t it just a blank piece of paper? When was the last time you have tried something new? Maybe tomorrow?

Jan10, 2018. Miniature No.56. "In the search of the rainbow". .
And I wrote the stories of the days and the months and the years, in colours and shapes. At first I wrote them so that you know, and then I wrote them so that I know. And oh my how much I learned; that departures are good and bad. And I tried to see the best in them and to pour it in those colours and shapes. And I am still looking for that rainbow, to find its end, to find that pot of gold that I once gave you.

And as I kept painting tonight, she kept looking at me, and I couldn't resist the urge to outline her... something tell me that I miss drawing humans! 😊
.
Context: A forever habit of seeing faces through all textures. This one is on a napkin I am using to clean the blue paint off my brush.

Jan. 6, 2018. No 54. "Maybe I..." .
Maybe I believed everything is true, maybe I was too simple to decode you, maybe I made a monument out of you, but if I was wrong all the way through, then tell me, why didn't you... .
Experimenting with various paints, colours, textures, and trying to not discard any of the experiments in the way. .

Jan 03, 2018. Miniature #53. "Why"
.
There are only so many days you can ignore the creative itch! So here we go. New experiment, using alphabet mixed with shapes and colours. The word written in Farsi reads: "Chera" and means "Why". ..
There are so many whys in my mind, there are so many whys in our lives, there are so many whys you want to ask and there are so many times you don't get to ask or dare to ask. ..
But why? It needs a certain innocence, a certain bravery, and a certain naivety to dare to ask the why. I want to stay a child. I want to ask why. It is with every why I ask that I reveal a bit more of you. It is the moment you can't answer my why that you are starting to ask your why. Dare to ask. Do not run away. We all need to stay innocent. It will be a better world that way. Always dare to ask me why. .

Synchronicity
.
Two young men, not familiar with each other, about the same age, happen to be at the same space at the same time. Both very smart, insightful and articulate, and both at this space to look at my artwork. I found out that both incidentally graduated from the same program that I teach at, but each knowing me in a different context. Seeing how smart they both are I felt proud to learn they are graduates of our program at FIMS. @fimssc .
Better than that: One of them felt his own synchronistic moment by stepping in this room and by being motivated and excited to get back to do his art again. I am proud to have made a small impact on another human being and I look forward to see his art in near future. .

Gold, and silver berries, with copper leaves, around a Christmas wreath as if they just came out of one of my dainty miniatures! Lately I often stop and think which proceeds the other: what surrounds me affecting my work or my work affecting what I want for my surroundings. When I filmed my living room a couple weeks ago before the art show, I realized how much what I paint resembles what I have around me. We must all look a certain way, as s package, from outside and perhaps we don't see it ourselves! .

Phoenix (Simurgh; Persian)
Acrylic on Canvas
.
A symbolic image of the will and ability to bring it all together. This painting is the depiction of the joy and satisfaction felt when the mission has been accomplished and it has all come full circle. .
“The Simurgh [Phoenix] is depicted in Persian art as a winged creature in the shape of a bird, gigantic enough to carry off an elephant or a whale. Simurgh is inherently benevolent and unambiguously female.” Wikipedia

Tomorrow, Sunday, 10-2 is the last day of my show, Meditations, at Satellite Gallery, 121 Dundas St. The gallery is steps from Covent Garden Market (for parking). .
A little note to dear friends who have purchased some of my artwork: a good portion of my recent sales have been and will be donated to animal charities in Iran and elsewhere. Part of the proceeds have been and will be shared with local people in need. .
The sales of these miniatures and prints are not my means of livelihood, but they might be a help in purchasing medication for sheltered animals or a pick me up gift for another human being who is less fortunate than you and I. .
I want to thank all of you who have helped me making this possible! ❤️ .
