Energy of losing


Let your soul take a flight  (A beautiful village near Isfahan)


  The beautiful autumn is coming in.
Leaves are turning yellow and red and the trees are losing their leaves.

Here are some new paintings from kavir (desert). The subjects are near Isfahan. Only the last one is from our trip in summer.

The fall season, the spring of life
Spinning with love
 























The slow, quiet autumn in my kavir





In the middle of the road

Some new aspects of Naqshe Jahan square

A view from the Jame- Abbasi mosque / Naqshe Jahan square / Southern side













I had a post about Naqshe Jahan square about 2 years ago. There, I had introduced that square. And also in some of my other posts, my subjects had been from that square and it's bazaar and the historic buildings around there.
Here I have collected some old and new sketches of this square that I have done by pencil, graphite and charcoal, and tried to show different sides of this square from new points of view. I wish you enjoy this showcase of one of the town's beauties through my eyes.
