In the midst of pandemic restrictions, I’ve been given a magical travel opportunity!  The chance to create a ketubah for a wedding of two Be’er Sheva residents has allowed me to spend about 70 hours diving into the geologic wonderland of the area around Makhtesh Ramon, deep in the Negev.  Don’t ever imagine that deserts are colorless!  The mountains, rocks, and sand in this part of Israel are a paintbox of dreams.  And into this stunning setting, the couple requested that I ‘plant’ a jacaranda tree in full purple bloom.  There’s nothing more to say.  I’ve loved every stroke of the paintbrush, line of colored pencil, and blush of pastel chalk in building up an imagined environment for that tree.  I hope it feels right at home!
