Nadir (In Memory of David Shirmohammad)
EarthPaint on Canvas, 12" x 12"
Laura Z, 2016
Private Collection

This memorial painting was done in honor of a dear friend. In the lower left side of the painting, I embedded a small glass bottle which contains some of his ashes. It was made using beach sand from a site in Flagler Beach, FL that was very special to him and his widow. I especially love doing commissioned work using site-specific materials that have special significance, and this painting was a great honor to create a legacy painting for my dear friend. I wanted to infuse this painting with as much peace, love, and healing energy as I possibly could. I would love the opportunity to create similar works.
