I recently traveled to Jordon and came back with a lot of inspiration to paint. These were done from my time spent at Petra, a city in the south of Jordon. Due to its breathtaking grandeur and fabulous ruins, Petra was recognized as a world heritage site by UNESCO. The only modes of transport allowed within Petra are on two feet or four (camel, donkey, or horse or horse carriage) We didnt use any animal rides since we didnt feel comfortable about the idea.
Personally this trip meant the world to me since it reinforced my faith in my grit, to be able to walk again after an year long confinement to bed. Creatively, I came back enjoying the rich culture and tradition that Jordon has to offer including an opportunity to learn the technique of mosaic at Madaba. A single piece of a 9 by 12 inches mosaic design cost 1500$ ! I bought mosaic pieces with an idea of creating my own piece. But when I am going to complete it remains a question mark!
