I have been waiting so long for these and boy has the wait been worth it! I am so honored that my paintings hold such coveted spots in the sun-kissed home of Sharon and Shakir Abal. Thank you, Sharon and Shakir for sharing these wonderful photos with me and my friends.
I get so excited when I see my girls again! Always. Eve moved in with my dear friends Mai Al-Nakib and Adeeb Abu-Ghazaleh last month. I found these photos in my mailbox this morning with a letter from Mai. She said: I’ve included a photo of eve up and one of eve before she was up, just […]
This painting was very impersonally titled ‘eleven‘. It was part of my Yellow Tape Portrait collection. Thanks to Ghena El Hariri, she has a home and a name now: Sophie. What more can anyone ask for? About the placement of this painting, Ghena said, ‘Finally I managed to send you a photo of Sophie […]
This is highly unconventional! But not surprising as it has been sent to me by my very eccentric friend Ethel Cooper, who bought my piece from the PrettyGreenBullet|The Exhibition show back in November. It took me a few seconds to figure out where it was. When I finally did, I realized that the framed watercolor […]
Months and months ago, I mailed a letter locally via Kuwait’s post. My friend finally received the letter, a picture I did on May 14th titled Dream & the Nonsense. I love the way Nada has made the colors on her shelf work. Maybe it is merely coincidental that the babushka dolls and green, oval […]
I’m in Beirut. I don’t have internet on my computer so it’s hard to update, upload or do anything new. So this is just a forget-me-not. I’m going to list some of my favorite posts for you to visit: Home, My Fourth Dream, and Them & Me. Of course there are many more that I […]
Dr. Sullivan sent me this last night. He spread the pictures on the wall but felt they were lost, so he divided them by this sadu an ‘old bedouin woman who made it’ gave to him a few weeks ago. He says, ‘I say hello to the children every morning.’ That is so cool.
My brothers and sister love me. Enough to allow me to use their wall space instead of stacking my paintings in my studio. These are two of ten charcoal works I did over the summer. The poor things got warped in a wave of heavy humidity we had around August.
This painting currently resides in Tareq’s office. I think it is my most travelled (within Kuwait and out) painting. It has yet to settle down in a permanent home. It is a little nomadic so I don’t see that happening in the near future. For now, it looks great where it is.
This painting hangs in the dining room of Farah Behbehani’s home. I love the way the carpet echoes the colors of my girl. The painting itself is one of a kind. I had never (and probably never will) painted what I call tantric lines on a canvas before. These lines emanate from another face within […]
