The Art of Israel: Finding Hidden Gems Among the Old and New

So, as you can guess from my last post, I've been a little preoccupied for the last two months exploring a new frontier for me... travel! It's been an exciting whirlwind of an adventure, with more surprises and discoveries then I could have ever imagined. When I decided to go adventure-seeking, I never knew how much art would be involved, old and new!

As I ran, walked, and stumbled through the land of Israel, I came to one conclusion: this place is a living masterpiece! I found beauty and mystery everywhere I looked. Mountains and valleys rise and fall majestically here, and even the most hum-drum village is worth pulling out your camera for. Here is a view I had of the Jezreel Valley from the Muhraqa Carmelite Monastery on Mt. Carmel in Northern Israel.


























The next couple of posts will be about some of the interesting and thought-provoking artwork and places that I was able to experience on my adventure. Some of it is contemporary, other things historical, but all of it is so cool! I'm so excited to share it with you!

Next week: Israeli Paper Art in Zichron Ya'akov
