Bar Mitzvah.


I did this painting about Father and Son.  A moment in life when a boy becomes a man.
I used ink and mixed media on special watercolor paper, which I order from England.


Here is a detail of the painting.  I like to use sparkling textures, most of it doesn't read by the scanner.

83rd street.


Quick sketch from the car on the way from the store, where I was choosing decorative pillows. What a nice house, I wanted to go there again and do a serious detailed study. Ink.

Sketch party.


Went to sketch party to draw costumed models. Lots of fun. Used different materials. Soft pencils, ink, Ecoline brush pens.


Here I used ink. We had live jazz music, piano, it was really awesome to sketch and listen to music, my favorite things to do.


Pretty hard to sketch two models at once.


I like these Ecoline markers, colors a bit too bold, but water works with it.  I used Stillman and Birn sketchbook, it took washes nicely, very good paper. I really enjoyed it and since that went to a few different events.

Sketch with ink and some sparkly inks.

Sketch after breakfast while waiting in my new Venezia Art Book by Fabriano. I added more sparkling inks a bit later, plus shimmer is not readable by the scanner.
I am losing my head over inks. Getting so many interesting inks from all over the world: Poland, France, England, Germany. Many with metal particles, interesting colors and organic smells.
 This little sketch goes home to England.

Israeli.

Ink and mixed media. Shimmering stuff I used, doesn't scan and gold glitter also doesn't show, but it's here. I met this young guy and we had interesting conversations, he recommended me few pretty sharp music groups, which I added to my iPod playlist. He is a modern young boy, but he knows how to talk to G-d. Amazing. Modern and ancient. Young and wise.

I got flowers.



I got flowers for March 8. I love Hyacinth, they smell so nice, so strong. Here is a painting I am doing for someone. It is far from being done. I will need some hint of wings. The cat died, so early, young, he was loved very much. 


I got myself some art materials to brighten up my day 

and start using it right away. Brush turned to be a bit too 

soft  for my liking, but inks are gorgeous.
