History fascinates me! What attracted me to paint this one was the feeling of coexistence that I got, the downtown Amman in the background and the old ruins of the Citadel in the foreground. Inspired by my trip to Amman, Jordon, Citadel has a long history of occupation by great civilizations. I think the shapes of the old and the new complimented so well, I just had to paint it! Coexistence is beautiful in any of its forms I guess.
