Safed: City of mystery. The alleys curve out of sight, hiding some new surprise. Whitewash and blue on the ancients stones like the horizon behind a mountain range. The ruins whisper stories of earthquakes and the students of Kabbalah. Endless, chipped staircases crane my attention heavenward. An artist will tell you, Safed is a challenge. But it’s worth the effort: light and shadow whirl and dance. The colors must express antiquity and vibrance at the same time. These pieces serve to unveil Safed’s secrets to you.
