In the midst of attending Carnegie Melon University, Ana von Hofmann took off for Australia where she painted the aboriginal regions and deserts and had her first inward contact with Meher Baba. The year was 1968. The subject of her first paintings was the vast Australian outback with its white ghost gum trees. She used all the methods that she had learned at Carnegie of stretching canvas with rabbit skin glue, turpentine and oils, and a variety of classical techniques. A few years later her life took her to Miami where she did her first paintings of Meher Baba as well as Baba and Mehera. The first painting of Baba and Mehera is now hanging in Meherazad in Mehera's bedroom. It was hand delivered to Mehera by Sarosh in the early 1970s. This collection covers the years 1970-2014. Each of Ana's paintings tells its own story and was conceived with the intention of showing the luminosity and soul of its subject.
