J-Town


Met some friends in Jerusalem who are working on a feature up there, for a bit o' beer and sketching. we wandered about checking out the colorful, complex array of Jerusalemites passing by- Ethiopian orthodox priests, a group of female soldiers, a tramp with a bad cut on the head, strung out 'seekers', and all the regular folk too.I sat on a pavement and sketched but got defeated by the wind flapping my pages about. We gave up and drank beer in a bistro style courtyard place off Jaffa road.

Wonderful piece. My friend who lived there says it feels like the center of the world. Love the strong colours on this one.
