Hafiz

Things have been pretty quiet in the art world these days but I just wanted to share a personal project I recently finished. This piece was inspired by my favorite poem, written by Hafiz. It was a relatively large piece (for me) with the dimensions of 8.5” by 11″. I hope you find both the artwork and poem as lovely as I do! It took forever to cut out those letters!

Even
After
All this time
The sun never says to the earth
“You owe me”

Look
What happens
With a love like that
It lights the
Whole
Sky.
