I began two years ago as an apprentice to a master painter. I've always sketched or doodled on any surface I could find during whatever free time could be found. My grandmother kept a folder of my horse drawings through the years and while I have no idea where it went, I vaguely remember drawings of clowns, fingerpaints from age 3, spending lunch in the library in 4th grade, drawing nudes in 2nd grade on the playground (I'm sure other kids liked that haha), and I even sketch at meetings during work.
Here are the ten paintings I began two years ago as a series of biblical/tradition-based pieces to make a collection. As I am winding down it gave me time to reflect upon how much I've grown and how the brush strokes have changed.
#1 The Fiddler 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
# 2 Davening the Shema 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
# 3 Moses' Fury 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
# 4 The Temptation of Eve 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
# 5 Joseph's Coat of Many Colors 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
#6 Bathsheba 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
#7 The Battle of Sisera (Deborah) 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
#8 Crossing the Jordan 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
#9 Bitter Waters (In the Exodus) 30 x 40" Oil on Canvas
#10 Daniel and the Lion (Sketch which will become the last painting)
Let's hope this one will be finished before the triplets come! The gallery and I discussed a possible time to show all the pieces and have a 1 day showing (2 weeks hanging in the gallery) for early November. I suppose a small gallery is still a good beginning! I look forward to sharing the final piece as soon as it's finished!
Have a great week!
