Hello,

I wanted to share one of my fantasy paintings, which I previously shared in another forum, but I thought being a city painting it would suit better in here.
This is one of my favourite points in Istanbul, a rare Baroque building, unfortunately gradually sliding into the sea. Somewhere where both West and East meet perhaps. The bridge behind is the first one joining Asia and Europe.

A wonderful representation of the Princess Mosque!. I remember this little place well and to see it again brings back wonderful memories. There is a little cafe nearby on the Bosphorus that I used to go to for afternoon coffee and to watch the ships sail by. I often think of how much I would enjoy returning to Istanbul now that I paint...I think the city would be even more magical.

Hello Debbie,

Thanks for your very nice comment. I guess wherever I go in the world all these memories will travel with me. Such a pleasant corner indeed, and famous with coffee shops as you remembered correctly.

Take care,

Can
