Acrylic on stretched canvas

Featuring the Beautiful Foroogh Mahafsoun

My interpretation for this piece is deep in my heart for someone who captured it a long time ago and whom I’ve never forgotten. The painting is all about the first taste of true love and how it never leaves our hearts.

    So beautiful Tahnja. Love how you accentuated the eyes – the soul – which show that the first taste never leaves despite how we may appear on the outside.

  • Love is a most powerful thing….and I think our first real encounter with it leaves a sweet taste we never forget. Mine was incredibly romantic and special…..a tale I will tell soon. Sometimes we don’t realise how deeply we can bury our greatest wounds and regrets….I found out how painful some past memories can be recently…and yet, the power of love remains even more poignant

    Oh gorgeous! She looks a bit misterious? Or she has a secret. :))) Hugs

  • Hello love! Yes, a deep secret that is only beginning to surface unlike the ship that sank with her hopes and dreams locked away inside….our what a tale she has to tell…and an epic painting to tell that story! In time, for now, she has to take time to heal old wounds and lost loves….that might even resurface if God allows it
