The Painting title: From Damascus to Granada

Medium: Watercolor 
Size:  20"x 16" 

Subject: this painting represents the Omayyad art from the 7th and 8th, century,
I was inspired by the four Islamic architectural sites: The grand mosque in Damascus, the grand mosque in Aleppo, the grand mosque in Cordoba and Alhambra palace in Granada

Painting description:
The four historical sites around the dome were built under the Omayyad dynasty as Damascus was the capital city of all countries under the Omayyad dynasty.

From each city (Damascus, Aleppo, Cordoba and Granada) I have chosen the most beautiful historical building and made a surrounding environment that match it story.
The four stories together with the dome and the four columns complete the whole painting idea.

My love for art and history, in addition to the world events, inspire me to start a new painting that reflects my emotions and philosophy.

Through my Brush and Imagination, I am able to dwell in a world of serenity and peace as the strokes and colors give life to my story.

I see art as a magical realm which I can escape to when facing challenges in life and I will continue to present tales of time as paintings of today.
