Your paintings

Dear Roshan

Thank you for sharing your work. Through the series which you published on Iranian there is a clear link which defines your visual expression. You have an excellent sense for combining colors and shapes. A sense where you use your own language and your own way of speaking out your thoughts and feelings.

Thank you and keep on going!

Interesting incorporation of Fibonacci spirals in your paintings, with a modern twist. Nice work, # 8 is my favorite.
