Afternoon, Siwa Oasis

Siwa Oasis is located in western Egypt, on the Libyan frontier. I spent some time there in the fall of 1988, while riding a bicycle across Egypt. This painting isn't an exact representation of what I saw, just an attempt to capture the way the late afternoon light looked splashing across the mud brick walls, and how that bright, warm light emphasized the shadows.
