Pre-Shabbat Frolic

May 22, 2019

I created this piece in honor of my good friend’s 80th birthday. She is from St. Petersburg, Russia, and arrived in America in 1997. Though she has been through so many trials and tribulations, she continues to find purpose in life through helping others. Our bond was immediate and we enjoy preparing Shabbat together every Friday morning. She makes some of her famous Russian delicacies, and my family gets to partake in the food that she so lovingly prepares. While we prepare, we dance, sing, share stories, and laugh a lot! I love her dearly and was happy to present her with this painting which represents our precious friendship.

He thought to himself, if soft water can penetrate hard stone, perhaps it is not too late for Torah to penetrate my heart, even at 40 years old… With his wife Rachel’s encouragement, he went to yeshiva and became the greatest scholar of his time.

"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
