A noted Lebanese landscape artist shares his faith and vision for extolling Godís handiwork

ďI think it was John Singer Sargent who said, ĎAn artist is he who has to paint.í If that is the criteria, then I qualify, although Iím not a  full-time painter. I teach classes in art and theatre in the American University of Beirut, Lebanon/

ďPainting landscapes, I feel, is my way of paying homage to the beauty of Godís creation. With the inclusion of buildings and roads, etc., I feel I can celebrate, on paper, the relation of God and Man. That is a favorite theme of mine.  I believe that art is a gift from God in the first place. So, isnít it appropriate to use it to extol his handiwork?Ē
