I can't believe it's been four years since our move to the far east. I have found so much inspiration in the rich heritage that can be found in every beautiful detail, whether simple or intricate. I've had a really visually rich year; travels to Tokyo, London, Shanghai, Italy & Israel have inundated me with beauty from every side, & I'm bursting at the seams with curious new ideas for paintings. Can't wait for the next adventure!

On this fragrant Mediterranean evening, with all the grace of a ballerina; she is carefully picking orange-blossoms. Across the way a little bird perched on a cypress tree introduces himself to a curious observer. The delicate & intricate pattern of leaves, blossoms & birds in the ground is directly inspired by antique Chinese techniques of mother-of-pearl inlaid in black/wine lacquer. The multi-hued flowers glint & glimmer while catching the light. The sky consists of vivid gem-hues of turquoise fading into ultramarine blues.
This painting is circular in shape & measures 31.5" inches & is
