samirmalik commented on Calling by samirmalik
Thank you :) I use different weights and textures of paper, it must be at least 160 gsm, and I use calligraphy inks and gouache.
Calling
It si one of the names of God in Islam ~ Al Mumin ~ The Remover of Fear,  The Giver of Tranquility,  The Source of Faith

The One who faithfully bestows the gifts of peace, safety and security.

The One who grants freedom from fear.

The One who illuminates the heart with faith. The One who is most trustworthy.

From the root ā-m-n which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be secure, safe, free from fear
to be quiet, tranquil
to grant protection, safeguard
to be trusted, trustworthy
to believe in

Al Mumin

Thank you so much for your beautiful comment ~ I feel very honoured and your words made my heart happy today. I have strived to make my art as pure and as simple as possible over the years, learning along the way that what you leave out is as important as what you put in.. Thank you again.
