Note from Keith about this painting: When I look at this piece I hear the call to prayer that rings out in the Jerusalem dusk, I smell the scented desert air that romantics embrace, I ponder the verse of poets both grand and glib, I wonder at what could have been and what will be …. And then, I ask myself, what does any of that really have to do with my painting? Honest Abe might say, “not a damn thing”, but that’s not too interesting. I think a better answer would be: the city in the background is Jerusalem at dusk, the scent is Glade “Cinnamon” air freshener, and the poets are Homer and Bart. Inspiration is a wonderful thing, wherever it comes from.
