View of the Tower of David, Jerusalem
9.5" x 13"    oil on board

The Virtual Paintout is in Jerusalem this month. I stopped on Dror Eliel, a quiet street, to paint across the way to the Old City walls, and the Tower of David. I was attracted to the picturesque and timeless feeling of this scene, without realizing that this is an important piece of history. The tower and the citadel were built over 2100 years ago, and have been fought over, destroyed and rebuilt many times. 

I hope you will visit my Gallery at The Daily Paintworks, to see more of my work.
