"Since I visited the area on a trip to the US in 2015, I have remembered the beauty, drama and colors of Washington County. Knowing I love to paint landscapes my brother has sent me photos of the vistas and I have used them for inspiration for these paintings. They have a bit of Turkish sensibility, and I take artistic license with the colors, but the essence is what I see in the photos. I hope to return one day for another visit"!
