Hope everyone is getting ready for sizzling summer. :)
So this is what I have been working on for the past weeks, with breaks.
Graduation gifts for my kid's teachers.
Daycare called Keshet (meaning rainbow in Hebrew) has been like my family here.
My kids went there since they were babies. Since all of my husband's and my relatives live across the ocean it is very uplifting to have such meaningful relationships like I have created with Keshet's loving and caring staff.
My children graduated there from the UPK class. last year my son and this year my daughter.
I made this drawing of a hand (Jewish Hamsa) for them, for protection from Ayin Hara (evil eye).
I included Blessing for Business in Hebrew to bless their establishment, so it continues to strive, while offering loving and cozy environment for the lil' ones, from newborns to UPK.
I also made individual copies of another design (below the Keshet design) for the teachers with their names written inside each one in Medusa script.
Medusa script is one of my most favorite. It is an Art Nuveau script which reminds me of my countryman and favorite artist, Alfons Mucha.
('Morah' means teacher in Hebrew), and there are blessings in Hebrew above each finger of the hand. From left to right: Parnassah (livelihood), Ahava (love), Emuna (faith), Shalom (peace), Briut (health).
However, I have to admit I made a mistake I yet have to correct.
Bellow each name are two Hebrew letters, hey and yud. As I was drawing till late hours, I didn't realize, I meant to write chet and yud, which means Life. Yet to be corrected...
ART FORWARD projects that I owe to my dear followers since March ..( :/ ) will be my next thing to work on, while I am finishing up a map of a place very dear to my heart for They Draw & Travel.
Stay tuned! :)
