How do we enhance our watercolor paintings?  With colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastel and pen, we will make our paintings "pop" with deeper colors and rich textures.  Classes are for all levels.

Invitation for artists to exhibit-- from Laura Roth, Development Director of Friedman Place:

Three of my Hamsa/ Amulet paintings are included in Beautiful/ Powerful Statements:  The Arts of Calligraphy and Repurposed Materials at Nails In The Wall, The Gallery At St. Luke's, Metuchen, New Jersey.  The exhibit opens Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 and continues through May 31, 2017.

I recently visited Jerusalem 1000- 1400:  Every People Under Heaven,  an exhibit of manuscripts and artifacts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Lucky for me, photography was permitted.  Highlights include handwritten texts by Maimonides and Judah ha-Levi.

NBC TV's show, "Chicago P.D.", contacted me for a ketubah to use on the set of a Jewish home.  Sorry to say, these people were the bad guys.  But, fun to see a reproduction of Jason and Carly Bradford's ketubah on their wall!
