When I travel I love to connect with a destination through my paints. Most recently, my husband and I visited Israel. I process a new place by painting the sights. I love Israel. I loved the food and the people. Most of the landscape looked a lot like central Texas with cactus and limestone. However, they use every area to grow their food. They irrigate and find a way to grow....Olive trees, almond trees, mangoes and oranges.
