After I checked out the last post I realized I had never uploaded three of the first ones I did...
Shir l'Shalom means Song of Peace. I like including Hebrew in the paintings; they are a nice design element. I wonder if I'd feel different if I were really able to read Hebrew. Somehow including English words would seem a distraction.
Miriam was actually the first one that I did. This one got me thinking I should enter the Jewish Arts Festival. It's based on a layout that I originally did for a greeting card company (it'll be available later) and then tried painting digitally.
This was the first sketch that I did where I tried an image in the Torah scroll. I like the symbolism and have repeated it in other variations.
