قهوه خانه (خواجه) چاه حاج ميرزا

Azadegan Teahouse

A dear friend in my city

He was a very kind person and also very serious in his work. I had a dear friend in my city, Isfahan. Simon Richmond is a freelance writer, photographer and sketcher based in Folkestone, UK. He has worked on travel guidebooks for many publishers for the past 20 years with the bulk of his work being for Lonely Planet. He was visiting Iran, and after Tehran , Isfahan was the next destination for him, so I was happy to talk, sketch and share thoughts with him in his two days in Isfahan. First, we went to Azadegan Coffee shop (Tea house). This place’s ceiling is full of old things and I really enjoyed of seeing them and the light reflexes on them and sketching them on my paper.

 My parents home has been always the center of affection and kindness for me. This time I tried to translate what I mean, on my papers.

Isfahan University of Art (1)

توحیدخانه همیشه سخت است جایی را که بارها تجربه کرده ایم با ذهنی تازه نگاه کنیم و آن را از نو بکشیم. کاملاً از نو.. در یک روز درخشان و بعد از یک باران پاییزی فرصتی برای این تجربه بود.

Isfahan University of Art (2)

Tohid Khaneh It's always hard to experience freshly what we have many memories of, and sketch it freshly.. absolutely freshly. It was a wonderful shiny day after an autumnal rain and an opportunity to experience that novelty.

Polar bears / خرسهای قطبی

معمولاً پست های من مرتبط با شرایط نیستند. البته فکر کنم این خرسهای دوست داشتنی و جان سخت زیاد هم بی مناسبت نباشند.

Work on haniwork easel in bazaar

It’s usually hard to sketch or paint in bazaar specially when you want to work on a haniwork easel. Many people want to see your work and judge you. Usually they ask whether it’s a finished work or if you want to work on it at home. One asked me “Are you an artist?” and immediately continued “it seems that everyone can do these works”. 

It does not bother you if you are aware that some of them are also very skillful handicraft artists of the Isfahan city or at least their eyes are very familiar to art. Sometimes their comments and suggestions are really helpful.

 But sometimes it disturbs attention. So that, I naturally search for a silent corner and Malek Timche is one of the best locations with ideal wonderful views for me in bazaar.

I wanted to add that, also sometimes it’s very exciting for me when children pay attention to me and the work, and I enjoy very much of discussion with them. They usually have their individual points of view, and it’s very interesting and useful. They sometimes like to work on my piece or edit it. And I think my paper usually has this potential.
