“The Kings Tomb”

Though I paint portraits I also paint places and objects that have a particular meaning to me. With my current painting called ‘The Kings Tomb” I drew inspiration from the gouache paintings that Paul Klee made of mosques during his time in Tunis in 1914. The mosque I painted was a mosque in a city where I lived where one of the first kings of Yemen was buried.  Sadly this historical mosque has frequently been targeted by aerial bombardments by Yemen’s neighboring countries.
