The Moon And I, We Understand Each Other
This painting is very simple and is based on my name. Mahshid, means moonlight in farsi and because of that, I have felt a closeness to the moon throughout my life. The phases of the moon always end up somehow corresponding to odd events happening in my life. I find the moon is always beautiful in its many different states. It reminds me that it is natural to go through phases. As someone who struggles with consistency in my life, I find comfort in the fact that the moon is seldom seen by us in the same way as the sun. For that reason, the moon has always been a source of comfort for me in the midst of chaos. I painted this as a course of comfort in the midst of a very turbulent phase in my life. Being named after the moon will always be my favourite thing about myself. The moon exists in my life as a reminder that even though nothing is consistent, there will always be calm in the midst of chaos.
