Concept:
The Hebrew words, are written on the picture - the wishes of Success,  Luck,  Happiness, Love,  Fruitfulness and Health

Intervening with the rich colors and most hypnotizing forms are the words of blessing and the Jewish traditional symbols that protect you:

A pair of birds – for love and harmony, Pomegranates – for joy and fruitfulness, 5 fishes and Hamsa that will protect you from evil eye…

Bring a piece of this magic and light into your home or to the people you care for.

 

 

 

Our life is a great salad, and Israel is one mixture combining the contrasting and yet complementary ingredients of East and West. Very often I get inspired by old decorative objects of different peoples: from ancient Oriental murals to Russian matryoshka dolls…

 

And there are no frames dividing between my works – they are like transitions from one tale into another, free wondering in thought and space. No wonder that people looking at my paintings raise associations of carpets. Some might desire to start a journey on a fairy-tale flying carpet that would them away from their reality, while others might wish such a colorful carpet would bring them prosperity and warmth, help them stand with both feet on the ground...

 

The sages of Tibet consider that between the ages of 17 and 70 we are at the same life stage, and that the eyes of a 69-year-old might shine just like those of a 20-year-old, all depending on our inside well-being…  For me, the art should help creating this shining from inside…

 

Every time a painting is finished, moreover when it is sold, it is time to say good-bye. Separation from works is an important life lesson. It teaches me to part from things easily, to leave the old burdens behind and make room for new experiences.

But still I feel a strong bond with my paintings even when they start their own independent lives, just like grown-up children. It is my great hope that my babies add color and kindness to this world. It’s also my great pleasure to keep in touch with my babies, to feel their gratitude. That is why people’s feedback is so important to me.

Symbolism:
 
Butterflies
are a powerful symbol of transformation and change throughout many traditions and belief systems. 
-At the caterpillar stage we may be stuck with ideas we don’t like, with behaviors or paranoia we want to change… 
-At the cocoon stage nothing special seems to be happening, although ideas keep knocking and developing both at subconscious and conscious levels. Sometimes we can feel a bit lost at this stage.
-Then comes the final transformation into a beautiful colorful floating butterfly. Now we are free to fly out into our new world and to see things from a whole new perspective!
So having an image of butterfly helps you pay attention to joyful things in life. Butterfly teaches us that patience is rewarding, and as long as we keep working and developing our True Selves, we shall reach the final glorious butterfly stage, the inner freedom.
The dance of butterflies fluttering its wings teaches that true joy is in the dance of life…
Fish
Water holds endless mystery to us – it represents that which is certainly there, but cannot be seen. 
Water has also been known to be a womb symbol and as such, an emblem of birth, fertility and woman-ness. This association comes from many ancient flood myths, and the “from water springs life” concept. 
Given the wonder that its domain holds, the fish too has similar symbolic meaning. There are numerous species of fish, but the creature in general holds some prime symbolic meanings: 
A fish is a common symbol of fertility, which in psychological terms means a promise of personal growth.
A fish is a symbol of Christ and may therefore function psychologically as a symbol of your true self.
Keys
In Japanese symbolism, the three keys symbolize love, happiness and prosperity.
The combined pigeon-and-key symbol means the opening of the sky’s gates through which our prayers pass.
In folk tales, the three keys are used for opening the three secret rooms that are full of treasures and that represent initiation and knowledge. The first, silver, key symbolizes things that can be discovered through psychological insight. The second, golden, one stands for philosophical wisdom. Finally, the third key, which is made of crystal, empowers you to act. Finding a key is usually a preliminary stage before treasures’ discovery as it symbolizes opening the Door to Knowledge .
The keys in my paintings might just help you find your own way to knowledge, as well as to spiritual well-being and prosperity.
