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!

After doing a guided meditation to prepare for my upcoming birth, I was inspired to make a painting using imagery from my experience. The image is a pregnant wolf with the Sh’ma painted around the border “Hear Oh Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is ONE!” and the “ONE” is coming from out of the wolf’s mouth. The baby wolf has a blue gem glued to it’s belly. The red parts are going into and coming out of the wolf, and also surround the wolf. An arm cradles the wolf at the top, coming from the red, like the red shape is the womb of God in which the wolf is being cradled.

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 drawing depicts a woman deep in meditation or prayer, connecting with the natural world around her. The trees and the sunrise are one with her, twirling themselves into the curls of her hair. This drawing was inspired by the Hebrew Sh’ma prayer: “Hear, Oh Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is ONE!”, which I interpret as meaning that God is one, all is one, all is God!

This drawing was inspired by children’s books like Dr. Seuss. It is a playful representation of a pregnant woman telling her pain (shown as a large scary wolf) to “SIT, BOY!”. She is taking command of the sensations in her body and feeling empowered, ready for labor! This can be given as a gift to a pregnant woman, used in meditation, or be a reminder during labor of who is REALLY in charge of your experience (YOU!)

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.
