Once Upon A Time 1

Acrylic & Mixed Media on Canvas

2016, 36" X 24" (inch)

The closeness of the figures in Once Upon a Time was inspired by pleasant memories of my family and friends spending time together on the beach.

We sang, talked, laughed, and enjoyed ourselves. I felt a powerful need to express the beauty of Syria and Syrian people, as more recently the country has been burdened by associations of violence and misery.

In Once Upon a Time 1, I wanted to show the figures in action – blending, interacting, and connecting with one another.
