Israel Collection

Landscapes of Israel, a country that has to be one of the most unforgettable lands to visit.

Click on the images to see larger versions, blue image titles are hyperlinks that will take you to further reading on that painting.

Here I present the Israel Collection, all to few impressions that are now historic, the country has developed so rapidly few of the sites look like this today.

Mostly these were made either on location or soon after my 1984 & 5 visits

My skills have also developed, I sometimes dream of an opportunity to return and paint anew in beautiful historic Israel, lack of funds conspires to arrest that wish.
