After a long week last week, today I was meditating today on the weight that comes from parenting. Wondering how much of that is what I take in, the responsibility I put on myself for that which is beyond my control. Separation while attached is so important, yet so complicated. Watercolor and some acrylic on paper
My latest for Hevria. What difficulty phones create for us subway artists. Link:http://hevria.com/rivka/ever-since-wifi-subway-riding-sucks/ or in bio
Words cannot express how grateful I am to Miri for being there for my family the last four and a half years. I don't know how I would have managed without her. I will always have the memory of her taking out my (then just two) girls to the park in the hot August summer , 9 months pregnant, so I could get a break, and giving me as long as I needed to pay her back ( took us three years). Miri, you are such a light to all of our lives in Crown Heights, we will miss you (and Sara) so much!!
After feeling very heavy this weekend from too many days of doing things for others and not for myself, I can confidently say again after three hours alone in the studio that my art time is my least selfish activity of my life. "Depression isn't a sin, but it leads to many sins. Happiness isn't a mitzvah, but it leads to many mitzvahs."
Better shot . "How to love your fellow"
And here it is. "How do we love our fellow?" 24 x36, acrylic in canvas. We can forgive others for sins between man and Gd. Can we forgive between man and man? Hoping for a big reversal, Purim style, this Adar. #Hashemprotects #onlygoodnews #downwithOrangeupwithAdar
Adding layers, experimenting with drips .. "how do we forgove our fellows?"got into the studio today early but only had about 45 min. Was it worth it? Oh yes.
