Daraiyah

Daraiyah is an ancient walled city on the outskirts of Riyadh. The substantial ruins there are being pulled down and a sort of replica is being built. This mosque is one of the remaining old buildings.

Tool bad they're pulling down the old stuff. Some things can't be replaced once lost.

Steven,

Your watercolors are wonderful! I was trying to find an email link to drop you a line, but this was the best I could find.

I saw your name over at Dr. Helens, and followed the link to your paintings. Beautiful! Some gave me a sense of old Chinese brush paintings, while others reminded me of JRR Tolkien's original work.

You do lovely trees, by the way. I especially liked "Tree, Carmel Beach."

Thank you.
