Moses Stands Before the Burning Bush

April 7, 2019

This original oil painting shows Moses standing before the Burning Bush. The landscape is taken from a mountain valley in the Sinai Desert, where I came across a walled garden set among enormous boulders. Beautiful fruit trees were growing, and there was a pool of cool water for the animals. In the painting, I imagine the fiery bush of G‑d at night, with Moses looking on, a tiny figure dwarfed by the enormity of the Divine Presence as revealed in the fire. In the distance, there is a campfire, and its denizens are unaware of the miracle taking place across the valley.

Bringing Heaven Down to Earth

Chassidism teaches that we are happy because we know and trust that G‑d is actively involved in every part of our personal lives; especially in our darkest challenges.

Creative works exploring life and Judaism composed by a spectrum of Jewish artists.

"The primary talent of an artist is his ability to step away from the externalities of the thing and, disregarding its outer form, gaze into its innerness and perceive its essence, and to be able to convey this in his painting.This is how an artist can serve his Creator." — The Rebbe
