I Feel Like a De Medici–Having Commissioned A Painting!


I asked artist Roshan Houshmand to paint me one of her hand images.


She says “The paper is from an old ledger, probably Urdu, possibly Farsi.  I took a miniature painting class in Jaipur, India, a few years ago and this is what we painted on.  I’ll have to go back soon and get some more as it’s a lovely backdrop to paint on.”


She adds: “The border is a block print I made a few years back and the hand design is ancient Hindu and/or Buddhist.”

I can’t wait to get it framed. It’s a very special pleasure to buy the work of an artist you admire.
