Roshan Houshmand - Purple Water Lily
Roshan Houshmand - Purple Water Lily, 2004
2004, New York. As an Iranian/American painter who was raised in the Philippines and then Iran, with a Dutch-American mother and a Persian father, my roots are steeped in ancient patterns and textures. My formal education in the arts however is absolutely Western, with a BA from Bennington College and a MA and MFA from Rosary Graduate School of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. My life's journey has been based on making art for the past thirty years. It has been the only constant in my life for as long as I can remember. My process feels ritualistic, and I am often guided by intuition, and a sensitivity to the formal relationships in paint.

Colt Second Model Dragoon revolver, 1851
Colt Second Model Dragoon revolver, 1851
One of only 2,700 made this is serial number 10322. The second model is recognizable by it's sqareback trigger guard and cylinder stops in the rectangular shape. This revolver shows some signs of the original finish and the cylinder scene is no longer visible as is common with the dragoon revolvers due to extensive use over the years. The cylinder scene was rolled on at the factory rather than engraved as are the serial number and other markings. Therefore it worn off quite rapidly in the filed from use.
