Blue Mosque

  Mixed Media/Fiber        42” x 54″ L

I visited Istanbul and was pulled into the fascinating merger of East and West. The Mosque is incredibly ornate and beautiful. It became my background for a group of Muslim young women These young women that I met while touring exemplified their individuality by wearing colorful scarfs while still honoring tradition. I was fascinated by each face. The women moved as a group and wore identical raincoats; they reminded me of the dance of the penguins.  Sold
