This painting has a meditative feeling, and depicts a woman deeply connecting with the natural world around her. She is attuned to the spiritual aspects of nature, and has a blissful look in her eyes. I made this painting while fasting on Yom Kippur, and listening to Krishna Das. This interesting combination produced a uniquely mystical painting and a feeling of new beginnings.

This painting depicts the intense gaze of a mysterious woman. The Hebrew words of the Havdalah prayer are written across her skin and intertwined in the curls of her multicolored hair. This is a blessing over the separation of different things, giving thanks for there being an abundance of opposites in our existence. Night and day, joy and sorrow, excitement and calm. All of it is a beautiful part of life and we are thankful. Click the picture to view a larger version.
