HI Nevin
Another gorgeous painting in the dark themes I so enjoy! It look fantastic in the larger version!

I also love this photo. Hagia Sophia is one of my favourite places. I have similar photos although they were taken many years ago before the recent discoveries of additional murals under the plaster. This is so fascinating to me. I think I need to travel there again.

Welcome back.. x Julie

You work is incredible. Aghhhh.
I love the photos of your studio. I am always curious.

I too am back from traveling...my daughter was in Istanbul, and then I met up with her in China.

Hello Nevin :D
Ahhh, I love "Traveller"! The shading in the colors and the hue of the blues is gorgeous! And the woman, she looks as though she is dreaming, flying on a magic carpet through the darkness! This is so lovely! I love your work!!!!

Your picture from Turkey is gorgeous too. I can see the inspiration from your photograph in your painting. Beautiful!

Thank you for sharing with us! What a treat to view this at the beginning of my day!
