Happy Persian New Year!

Just a few hours to the beginning of the Persian New Year and Spring equinox.
Here is my HaftSeen, a tradition of Ancient Nowruz. Iranian pastries, garlic, candles, a mirror and Sabzeh (the green grass),...

Holy books or books of old Persian poetry...
I wish everyone a very Happy New Year and a wonderful spring! xo

Here is the finished painting!
Watercolor on paper
7.5" x 7.5"
I was planning to do another bird painting to go well with "Cherry Blossoms" and
"Cozy nest" painting, so that I can frame them as a trio set.
Here is our den/dining room and now the wall is not naked anymore :)
You can find the archival print of these three painting in my Etsy shop.
Hope you have a great week friends!

I read about Japan's 8.9 earthquake news this morning in Google home page.
What an angry planet we have *sigh* ... I hope everyone stays safe from the Tsunami :(
Our window faces east Toronto and I never see a sunset from here, but reflection of
lights from glass buildings far away is as beautiful as the sunset itself.
