Rosh Hashanah celebrates God’s creation of the world we live in. It is filled with myriads of color, texture, light, and movement. Taking imagery from my photographs and combining them with previous paintings and prints I manipulate and transform them into something new. These images represent the birth of the universe.
Over the past two years I have created digital images using the iPad. Because I travel a great deal and can’t carry many art supplies, I have discovered the joys and frustrations of using this new media.
