To celebrate people make a table at home with seven things on it that start with the letter -S in Persian. It's is called "haft-seen", seven -s.
This year I have made one my self. You see: sabzeh (sprouts, but mine still has to grow...), sib (apple), sir (garlic), serkeh (vinegar), somaq (a spice), sekkeh (coins) and the one thing missing is: senjed (dried fruit) or you can also put samanoo, a sweet pudding. You also see a candle (symbol of light), a goldfish (it's not a real one!, symbol of life), an egg (symbol of fertility) and a mirror. I don't know exactly what it stands for... Any one?
The topic of IF this week is: YESTERDAY. I decided to paint this typewriter, an old machine that we don't use any more. Because TODAY we are all mailing, chatting, posting and searching on the internet. But there are still people that use typewriters, have a look at this page: USB Typewriters :-)
Today I got this box with 12 beautiful colors from my father. A very big surprise! :-) When I started painting I could immediately see and feel the difference with my old box of water colors. If you think that the quality of my illustrations is a bit higher from now on, then you know why!!
