I’ve been meaning to share this painting on my blog for quite some time now, this painting is very close to my heart. It is of the Kaaba, or the building at the center of the most sacred mosque. This is the direction that Muslims pray in and it is the place that Muslims go to for pilgrimage at least once in a lifetime.
This was made as a commissioned piece, and it now lives on a living room wall in Vancouver. This canvas is 24×36 inches so 2 feet by 3 feet, the largest canvas I’ve made. This is an acrylic painting and the gold on the kaaba itself is real gold foil.
