My precious grandma

Happy Persian New Year everyone.
I'm a bit late because my precious grandma passed away a few hours before the new year.
I miss her so much but I'm sure she's in a better place now.
Spring is now here and I get to meet my old friends again.
They all sing very cute songs and I can't tell which one sings better!

Never give up!

I had started painting this illustration some time in September and
at that time my health situation was so bad that I left it unfinished.
I originally wanted to encourage myself with this quote "Never give up".
And now I really believe in it.
I just finished it last weekend :o)
Watercolor and colored pencils on 8.5" x 11" Hot-Pressed Fabriano paper
I asked my husband Suma to take a photo of me next to a table lamp.
It helped me with the lighting of the illustration!
You can purchase the archival print of this illustration in my Etsy print shop!
