Ever feel like there are not enough hours in the day? Well I’ve learned the secret of how to accomplish more in a mere 24 hours and I’m going to share it with you right here, in two words: SLEEP LESS! Yes, it’s as simple as that! It does leave me very grouchy the next day but I suppose everything has its price….
I’ve been painting ever spare minute I can get and I’m actually going to try an art sale on Sunday, which is making me crazy nervous that no one will buy anything. I did a sale once before and it wasn’t a smashing success… But we must put ourselves out there and make an effort and the rest is in Hashem’s hands, right?
So I’ve been painting mezuzah frames and doorplates and hamsas and mirrors… and these two watercolors that I just love! Here is one– for those who haven’t been to Jerusalem, that’s the Kotel (Western Wall), with birds and the little notes to God tucked in the cracks!
And just for fun, here it is in a frame… cuz doesn’t artwork just look ten times better when it’s framed?!
And here is the second watercolor, I’m quite fond of this one too. I want to do a little series, maybe a couple others, of different flowers in different colors. Click in to see the detail!
This one is a Birkat Habayit (Blessing for the Home) that I did a couple weeks ago. The door is copied from a real one in Tzfat which I thought was pretty… but not sure about the results. It’s kind of funky… what is your opinion?
And here’s one more little thing that I painted recently… it is for a guy who plans to give it to his kallah (bride) on their wedding day. As far as I know he composed the wording himself, isn’t it sweet?
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment! I would love to hear your feedback, as always!
