In 1992 I painted a large series of pieces titled "Dreams of the Old Country" where I used landscapes in the backgrounds to express the female's emotional state. They were dreams , golden or silver framed  with landscapes from the old country ( The Middle East). I missed the world of my childhood and formative years.

Dreams of the New Country showed the female figure floating into the landscapes on a flying carpet to express the sense of joy to be within these paradise like landscapes of my new world.
