Johny of Arabia

Few years ago I took my devoted Christian friend John to see the country that he always talked about and wanted to see. I have born in the magical city of ‘Jerusalem’ which I often go back to see to refresh my collection of sounds, sights and scents which I very much miss, as I live too far away from it. I wanted to show John the beauty of this country and the ability of many people from all over the world to unite and live together in this one small beautiful place, the City of Jerusalem.

John told me once that he had a dream to be ’Johny of Arabia’ based on ‘Lawrence of Arabia’.. So I have tried to make his dream come true while we were visiting Jerusalem… At least I gave him the look… I recently painted few pictures of the city which I put in the post ‘Jerusalem’ and today I am adding a couple more of my Oil paintings which I completed in my last Oil painting adult education evening class.

Jerusalem pre painted Black boxes. Both paintings are not identical as I tried to paint it from observation of a photo I took some years ago and could not find for the occassion, so it was more of a fading memory.
