|#9 "One Hump or Two?"|
The Last three in the Series of The BAB Souq. I think these last three are my favorites. I don't know though I like them all for different reasons. I actually eliminated the real #7 and that made all the numbers off a bit as I did 12 prints in all. #7 just lacked too much. Although, you never know I guess. I just have been into more detail and busy-ness lately. #9 is an encore of my original favorite camel photo that I fashioned my original camel stamp from which is also included in this print. There are some of the Bahrain Postage Stamps featuring among other things a photo of the King. I also like to include the local paper written in Arabic which I cannot read so I try to put it in such a way that the viewer understands that the artwork is not about what is written in the article.
"With Blessing"#10, is two views of a blind begger that is a constant in the Souq. The Arabic writing says "with blessing".
#11 "Open" is another breakdown of some of the graffiti I found. I love these cartoonish images and the cartoon key going into the real lock. I should just keep going on this series as I like each new one better than the last. I guess that's a good thing. I've been told that the BAB fest will extend into April. My show was only for a week though so if you happen to go you will see a new artist each week. Be sure to check out the Festivities from 4:30 to 10 PM Thursdays thru Saturdays in the archway of the BAB Building, Gate way to the Souq. My Last print workshop is next Friday and Saturday, the 29th and 30th of March.

#10 is my favorite, but the whole series is very fine. Thanks for your nice comments. My blogging has been sporadic lately. But I am trying to get back to it.
Hi Maggie, I know what you mean. It's hard to keep up with all the blogs I would like to visit more often myself as well as getting my own work done to put on my blog. I do like your new stuff though. Really fun and colorful.
