Blue Gates of Fez
oil on panel
I painted the iconic archway from the Blue Gate in Fez, Morocco. And because it was dusk, there were lots of sunlight on the old walls. I wanted to include the details of the bricks and walkway. The opening was mysterious. I didn’t feel comfortable putting people in, I wanted to paint possibilities, and that meant abstracting the scene. It could be interpreted in many ways but it the end, it felt right to do.
