I have five beautiful old persian pages, which I got as a present from my friend, an amazing artist Yakov Feldman. Few of them still have some remains of illustration, in a very bad condition, though. When I told Yakov, that they are too beautiful to ruin them with my drawings, he shrugged his shoulders: «Just draw on top something. Finally, it is only a paper, you know.»
So I did. I decided to draw some scenes of our everyday life in persian style: the girls and me having a picnic in our garden, my friend Boaz gives guitar lessons to my daughter… And I don’t know what will come next on the three others :) . I enjoy so much to touch this old paper with my thin brushes, it absorbs the colors easily, but never makes them blurred. I also wonder, where can I get some more.
