Visit their symphony and their palaces and cathedrals . This is my oil painting I painted of a "pretend" violinist from Vienna, and I completed on 2nd January 2015. This is also one of my ethnic series [#ethnicseries] of paintings and sketches that I began in year 2006 and continue to this day, creating art of people around the world of all ethnic tribes, classes, cultures, languages [that are almost always created entirely by me--not real people] as a way of reminding the world "that JESUS loves the little children; all the children of the world, red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight".
II. Alpine :
The Swiss alps of course are one of the world's premier destinations for skiers. I have only flown over the alps, not actually visited them. I admit I have very mixed emotions about them because I am not terribly fond of extreme cold, snow and ice! But who isn't fascinated with Switzerland? This is my sketch I created of an Alpine village and chateau before the winter set in.
III. American Midwest and west , especially the Dakotas and Wyoming that have real native Indians.
This is my sketch I drew with pencils, charcoal and tinted charcoal of an American born Indian .
Aramaic is an ancient language, but some still speak it according to my research, in the parts of the world called "the holy land", [of Christians, Jews and Muslims]. This is the sketch I created in watercolors of an Aramaic man. I do not make images of GOD ever, but someone did ask me once if this is my version of JESUS? No, it wasn't intended to be. There is no record of how JESUS looked anywhere in the Bible except to say that on the cross His visage changed. The word visage is defined by dictionary as "countenance, appearance, aspect " and another similar word with the same root suggested a mask. In other words, His entire appearance changed on the cross; and I often wonder if He took on his heavenly appearance at that time. Anyway, this is not an image of JESUS! I was merely trying to create the clothing and beard of a "generic" man in 'the holy land" [as I think they as a class would look with beard, olive tones to skin, and with something covering their head, which I think is because of sand storms }. These "people" in these 4 created art "works" that I created are NOT real people.
Here are some youtube videos that are very entertaining:
7 min youtube video of masks, splendid costumes and music:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ryhN5kNFzc&index=2&list=TLb3oymIZXEjM with Philharmonia orchestra and Vladimir Askenazy's "Intermezzo" with trains; and "Ballade" has a "black forest" look to some visuals and also lakes, and "Alla marcia" is such happy music with what sounds like trumpets, flutes.
And here is news about two festivals of music coming up in January that some might want to travel to experience:
Quote: "Organizers of the Winter Blues Jazz Fest hope locals [of Williamsburg, Virginia , USA] and out-of-town guests alike will shake off the seasonal doldrums with four days of live music throughout the area.
The series of 12 events starts Jan. 15..." See http://wydaily.com/2015/01/05/new-music-festival-to-bring-four-days-of-jazz-to-downtown-williamsburg-next-week?cat=localnews/neighbors/
