Echad/One 2015
Acrylic paint on canvas
18" x 24"


This painting was done intuitively, layering colors, shapes and lines, each step suggesting the next.   I included a hamsa, a stylized hand which is an ancient symbol of good luck.  I also used the Hebrew word Echad which means One.   This led me to research early versions of letters from many languages.  I even included a few letters from imaginary languages!

Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.    Adding the textures of many different mediums gives the energy of Creation.
