rain bird

I painted this at a library program I went to with my kid, where the materials provided were very well-used and frizzy brushes, bottled gouache, and plastic forks. Because of the size and condition of the brushes I had to sign my name with the handle of the brush, which is why it looks so uneven and un-letter-like. But the brush frizz helped to make good feathers, and the fork helped to streak the sky to give a rain-like effect.

Another mezuzah commission

Here I am pleased that the margins are well-justified, but that no letters are unduly stretched, and no words are crunched in order to achieve this effect. I strive for this in my mezuzah work.

The Dundas Museum & Archives is hosting a multifaith celebration and exhibition. On request, I contributed a mezuzah qelaf and case and a feather quill to this exhibition. :)

Flying Donkey

For my mother's birthday card, as she loves flying donkeys, which are difficult to find.
