In this painting Sarah portrays the typical streets in Lebanon, with the electric wires, the laundry and the people sitting together outside their shops. It is a painting that shows the hidden charm in such scenes.
Her paintings from this series capture the authentic character of chaotic streets, local shops, old buildings, hanging laundry, cluttered balconies and the electric wires that span almost every corner. She shows Lebanon how locals identify with. Her aim is not to display famous places or beautiful sceneries, but rather to show the hidden charm of ordinary places that remain unnoticed, and people pass by every day. She paints these scenes the way they really are without polishing rough patches.
