Art and architecture from Israel

Just came back from a family visit in Israel. Obviously a trip like that would include some site and art seeing.
I had a chance to visit a couple of artists' "colonies" - one is EIN HOD, a village on Mount Carmel,where they actually live and create, and the other is a neighborhood in Tel Aviv, called NEVE ZEDEK. Here is a sample of what I have seen and liked the most

Lots of colorful doors in Neve Zedek

Artist: Dina Merchav

A corner in my mom's colorful home. See where I get it from?)

Just a quick note: My artwork has been published in a few places recently:
The Cloth Paper Scissors Book by Barbara Delaney has an abundance of articles that have been published in their magazines in the past. A huge resource and inspiration.

In the new PAGES magazine you'll find a couple of my artist books. This magazine is the newest and I believe the only magazine for book arts lovers.

And last but not least - Seth's blog The Altered Page is a wonderful resource for all mixed media lovers.
In Seth's latest post "The Pulse"  he lists artists' favorite tools. Guess what mine is? Check the link for the answer!

A day in the countryside (in Israel)

Recently I had a chance to visit family and friends in a beautiful place in the countryside, a place called "Kerem Maharal". It was a wonderful warm autumn day, with great food, lots of human and animal friends and peaceful views. The photos below will tell the story.
Thank you sis and Y for an amazing day.
