This is my May entry to Bill Guffey's blog VIRTUAL PAINTOUT.
Harod's Gate (12x9)

I enjoyed hiking through the historical Old City of Jerusalem. My reference for this painting was on the South end of Harod's Gate. The contrast of the dark arch and the sun lit path made and interesting composition. The second arch provides a repetition of shape, and the man provides a focal point.  There are a lot of subtle colors which are a challenge to paint.


  1. Phil, I don't comment here often enough. Your work is wonderful. I am a fan.

  2. Vincent van Gogh was the famous Dutch artist who painted the Starry Night. While Van Gogh might have only sold a single painting, his thoughts and brilliance are accredited through this one painting only. In addition to being one of the most famous paintings of all times, Starry Night is reputed for being one of the popular images in the contemporary art culture.
    Starry Night depicts a small village in the city of Saint-Remy beneath a swirling sky. Unknown to most people, the village is being viewed at an angle from an asylum. please visit
