The second thing I painted this year. One of the most moving places I have been to in Paris was the Grand Mosque of Paris. It is designed in the style of Spanish Moorish mosques. For the time I was there I was completely transported to North Africa. Beautiful place.
For Father’s Day, I painted this silhouette of a charging horse. It is inspired from an already existing calligraphy called Darwish’s Horse on the everitte.com blog by a superb calligraphic artist Everitte.
The writing on the horse is the complete poem Take my Horse and Slaughter it by Mahmoud Darwish.
Please bear with me that since I speak no Arabic, the writing descended into gibberish.
