This painting is a depiction of an ancient village in Iran, with a Persian well. The emphasis is on strong light and shade against the Persian blue sky. This small Iranian village near Isfahan, is from my childhood memories. I remember that on the right side there was a humble bicycle repair shop. Above the shop was a portable roof made with straw, in order to create some shade from the hot Iranian sun. In the distance, was a mini bazaar {bazaar che}. It was this combination of old Iranian elements which prompted me to paint this Persian watercolor.
