Tue, 1 April 2014 - 1st of Nisan, 5774 - Rosh Chodesh Nisan
Chodesh Tov! The holy month of Nisan begins, and with it my brand new painting, "Miriam." As we prepare to celebrate Pesach (Passover) starting on the 14th, we recall the sister of Moshe putting him in the basket on the Nile River, leading the Song at the Sea during the exodus from Egypt, and meriting the miracle of water for the Nation of Israel while traveling through the desert.
It is this latter quality that inspired me to change what started as a flame-like design into a splashing blue water motif honoring the prophetess.
