It took about 6 months to finish this emotional artwork. This is an original painting with inspiration from Autumn. All the utensils referenced are from where I live. Handmade glazed glass, autumn leaves in the house’s yard, and my father’s book when he was a student. All of these subjects emphasize on beauty and worth of this artwork. The technique used to illustrate is Realism which is painted with Oil colour on handmade natural Russian canvas. The original photo was taken with the normal camera on a lovely autumn day. Therefore, I gave it an Avestan (Ancient Persian Culture) name, Raspina which means autumn season. I used warm colour and dark tonality to induce the feeling of colour change of seasons in nature. There was also transferring the pleasure and warm feeling of relaxation feeling in drinking tea and reading book. The book used in the painting has a special character. It was published in 1930 and all the sides of the pages are covered by gold leaf and the cover is made of natural leather which makes it live even in the painting and transfer a nostalgic feeling.
