Old Yafo

Oil on canvas 91.5 x 91.5 cm

I took a stroll through the old street of JAFFA, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoying the place and its colourful history. This painting has taken me longer to paint because of major floods that we had in my city of Brisbane, it has been raining for three months just about everyday. It turned to be a catastrophical event of Biblical proportion where it had affected many people in Brisbane.

YAFO---The Challenging Time

Oil on canvas 91.5 x 91.5 cm
Old Jaffa Israel.
Ancient bulidings, a place of inspiration and hope. And as the dusk sets in, on the Mediterranean Sea, it unfolds its splendor of its past.
Visiting Old Jaffa that attracts many tourists who are visiting the many galleries which are part of the old city I have found it as a beautiful place.
