The Red House

Ed Grossman completes his Jerusalem series with this masterful work entitled The Red House”. On the hills of Jerusalem, with the ancient city looming above, we spot a small red cabin on the banks of a stream. This image is rich in color and details and expresses our strongest desires. The top of the painting brings us Jerusalem – its history and religion, its wars and its walls. However, at the center of the work, at the very heart of the image, are not walls or holy rites, but rather a small red house perched beside a gurgling stream. Our minds might be forever preoccupied by such lofty ideas, but our hearts want family, a warm safe place. Our hearts want home.
