I signed the Mount Zion Hotel piece and declare it officially completed. I will shortly be uploading the finished image (see above) to my website.
So now it’s time to start on my next piece.
I was approached a short time back by someone here in Beit Shemesh who saw my Nahlaot Backstreet piece at the exhibition last Sukkot and really loved it. Unfortunately for them, they were not the only person who saw it and loved it. That would be fine, only that other person bought it on the spot and took it home.
Anyway, they have a spot that they really want to fill on their wall and they want me to paint them a picture to go there. The idea is that it will be similar to that other one they missed, but in a horizontal format.
This is a horizontal section taken from the reference photo I used then (2004):
and here is a photo I took at the same place last week:
The bushes have grown a bit in the last three years but you can see it’s the same location. In the next day or two I’ll show you how the composition comes out on the canvas.
