Good bye tel Aviv-Yafo ,

A special thanks to my friends that made my visit worth wild and more pleasurable, Here is a few photos of paintings I did of the rocks where (according to the Greek mythology) Andromeda was chained to the rocks, and set free by Perseus.

My first Sea scape of tel Aviv yafo, The ocean is so soothing and calming in the background, no one could have bothered me even if they wanted.

“Abraham’s prophesy" oil on linen 81x82 This is the first commission painting I have ever made, it is also the first biblical painting I was asked to do, it is a painting of “Abraham’s prophesy”.

I usually stay away from narrative painting but was willing to try as long as the painting was appealin

I usually don’t like to speak instead of my paintings, I believe the painting should transcend visually what the painter wants to say, but I will point out a few anecdotes that are important to me: - I was born in Israel a cou
