My Israel Series was at the request of a US Diplomat and his family. We flew into Tel Aviv and drove to Jerusalem where he was stationed. The Fish Markets of Jerusalem fascinated me the most. The light, the smells, the people- All blends into my paintings of Israel. The unusual view of the Dome of the Rock, comes from a classroom of an elementary school. This school is across the alley from the First and Second stations of the Cross. The open Markets of Old Jerusalem sparkled and the 14 days trip was beyond any words. Enjoy!
