Acrylic on 26 by 32 inch canvas. I am intrigued by the designs and hand work on the Omani caps that form an important part of the Omani men's traditional attire. I heard the story of an Omani mother who painstakingly embroiders designs on the caps for all her sons. She some times takes as long as an year to finish a cap with the intricate designs. I saw a mother's love in this gesture more than anything else and also the son's pride for his mother. I thought this would make a lovely subject for me to paint.
A mother's love brings light in to a child's life and a true mother understands even what her child does not say!
I have always enjoyed art from an early age. I paint because I love the process the most. It has been a self learning experience and I am enjoying my journey of constant learning and creating. Thank you for visiting.
