In 2002, just prior to the war in Iraq, I was compelled to visit Jordan and tour the country with Landmine Survivors Network. This organization is the one that Princess Diana helped publicize and promote. The trip was an emotional one for me, and I learned much about the Islamic culture in Jordan, as I had the great opportunity to visit many historical sites. I have held onto these small en plein air paintings as mementos of my trip, and still have plans to turn them into large studio paintings, sometime in the future.
