Pakistan Painter Heraa Khan

The Jealous Curator says: "Flowers in full bloom, and beautiful, happy, lipstick-wearing ladies… ♥! This work was sent to me by Heraa Khan, an artist from Pakistan. She describes herself as a “miniature painter”, not because she’s miniature {I’m pretty sure}, but because most of her work is as small as 2.5″x4″ – these are gigantic compared to that, coming in at around 9″x13″… and, she makes everything herself. I mean, everything: the paper, the paintbrushes, and the paint {which she keeps in sea shells!}."

I remember seeing this in a textbook and being taken by this painting. For the life of me, I can't remember the name but I love this painting so much. They look so in love and I'm interested in what they are drawing or writing.

This is a painting by a friend of mine, Christa Lynn Sadeghian. She is an amazing artist and photographer. She is a very creative woman, and you should totally look her up because she really is an amazing artist.
