Bechara Church, Achrafieh Beirut Lebanon by 

Original Artwork 40×30cm Watercolor on Canson Coldpress 300g

Bechara Church is a Greek Orthodox Church in the heart of Beirut, just around the corner from my house. The arabic name "Bechara " means The Annunciation or Good News. I always look up at its white dome to see how the light plays off it at different times of day. The inside of the church is even more breathtaking, a true splendor with its icons, chandaliers and carpets. This painting was a gift to the church.

Art… I live, breathe and eat it… can’t get enough.
I love to create my art… I’ll paint all day long if I can.
It touches all aspects of my life. I work as an art teacher in 3 schools, paint murals in homes, businesses…indoor and outdoor, do some graphic design, and hope to soon illustrate a children’s book. And I LOVE TO VIEW ALL YOUR ARTWORK HERE ON REDBUBBLE!
