Daliat El Carmel

Daliat El Carmel is a Druze village near Haifa. I was there with a friend on a sunny day, and, taking the wrong path to the market, we found ourselves in front of a beautiful view. I promptly took a photo on my phone.

Later I was sitting at home listening to my sister playing the piano. She was playing the Bach fugue in C minor, over and over in loops. I set to work painting this scene from the photo I had taken, painting individual grass blades, and gathering patience from the gentle repetitive notes of that beautiful fugue.
