The Embrace, acrylic on canvas #artistsoninstagram #artistmama #nyartist
In the Garden. Tried to put two images on top of each other and was happy with the results!
Changing. Because experimentation is everything. Doodling with paint in my brain. #experimental #artheals #artistsoninstagram #nyartist
In the garden, acrylic on canvas. Meditating today on what is the power of painting, to which I feel confused by most days; I feel the effects and the nurture, but I wonder- what causes the nurturing feeling? I think it's the giving of space to the small, still voice within, letting it speak it's reality without judgement. To a relaxing weekend and Shabbos to all.. #artistmama #color #beauty #artheals #redmeption #naturepainting #nycartist
Reflections from my first year in the pedagogical trenches. "My own core philosophies and artistic inspirational ideas were built throughout my years of creating. In class, I am called upon to impart them to others. These ideas are some of my deepest gifts and sacrifices, and I am learning how to honor them as such. At the same time, my approach is but one perspective on art, and there are many, many others, and they are all valid.
Every time I step out of the classroom, I’m depleted from the experience. They take everything out of me; all the hours I spent staring at my paintings, all of the words I never spoke aloud, pulling them from my reticent insides.
They raise me higher as we learn together, combining what I never knew I knew with their own insights and abilities.
There in the class, they teach me. They teach me how to unearth all the shy wisdom buried deep within me, giving it permission and authority to let it out."Link at http://hevria.com/rivka/how-teaching-elevates-the-teacher/ or in bio. #artheals #class #pedagogy #nyartist #learning
