Centre of many faiths
I decided to paint an image representing the western wall and Israel. Israel is the centre of many faiths and in a time when people are finding it difficult to be tolerant of others it is important that we spend time understanding different faiths and the history behind of those faiths and in turn the places at the centre of those religions. I wanted to try and create a peaceful image that showed the reflective nature of the wall and convey through the image some of thoughts and feelings of the people who go there to pray. I also wanted to show key features of the three different faiths to show them under the same skyline. This is not a copied painting, I wanted to create my own interpretation of a wonderful place.
