I am a Jewish artist and I wanted to create a space to celebrate other Jewish artists + Jewish artwork in general. I created this Facebook group about a week ago and people have been flooding in ever since. You can discuss artwork, promote your shop, connect with other Jewish art lovers, and get inspired!

Feel free to join up and post stuff about your new artwork or favorite Jewish artist! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=148997195121243

Come share in the fun!

This image was made entirely with thick layers of crayon, which I etched away with a knife. The technique I use is tedious but creates a feeling of heightened focus, so I have a sort of spiritually meditative experience while making these. The image is a chamsa (traditional Jewish symbol for luck) with a star of David in the center, and “chai” (life) carved in Hebrew. The detailed carving creates swirling colorful patterns throughout the image. I really like making these!

This traditional symbol has always seemed mysterious and magical to me. Click here to see more of my paintings: ShirChadash.etsy.com
