There’s nothing in the world like Sukkos in Israel!! And if I can’t be there physically, then I was Israel in my sukkah..
When I was in seminary in Yerushalayim, I’d snap photos wherever I went. My friends would ask, what you using that for? & I’d respond: to paint it!
I want to FEEL it. Break it down to its parts and really feel it’s essence. Anything, everything. I want to experience it!
So I paint. I let the brush guide my hand and go with what I see. I want the essence of the subjects to pierce through. Not the subject. I do it, by feeling it.
