Yom Asal - Yom Basal  is Arabic يوم عسل يوم بصل and means: One day Honey - one day Onion! 
Do you ever have days when you feel upwards and backwards and upside down? I do and on one of them I made this little painting.

Maya - 40x60cm - acrylic on stretched canvas - 2013

This painting went up on the wall in a sweet little boys room in Germany. 

Maya was an injured tiny street kitty, alone and miserable, found and rescued by my daughter-in-law. She took her to the vet, she mothered her, she fed her with a syringe, she cared for her and loved her. Maya is a big gorgeous cat now, and always has a red bow on her collar. :-)

Each morning when I wake up, I experience again a supreme pleasure - that of being Yael Eshkar.  :-)

Heart Messenger - 60 x 80 cm - acrylic on stretched canvas - 2014

He flows with vigor and love on the stream of Time. He takes his job of delivering all the good stuff that makes life worth living very seriously. He is modest, simple, but powerful and energetic. He is joyful, playful and good. He is very fond of us and likes us to be happy. He reminds us to be thoughtful, compassionate, forgiving, patient, kind and fair, with empathy for all living souls. 

Wow, what a nice little fellow! :-)

Butterfly - 40x60cm - acrylic on stretched canvas - 2014

This is a spirituell painting. The circles, mandalas, symbolize harmony, wholeness, perfection, and completeness. The moon, the sun, the earth are mandalas of infinity, presenting us with unity, and teaching us cosmic order. The circular design is avoid of beginning and ending, like life itself.

I painted many eyes for protection. The ancient superstition of the evil eye is very much alive in modern life too. A look of the evil eye may cause harm, bring bad luck, inflict suffering. Do I believe in this myth? Better to be on the safe side, so here are the symbolic eyes against the malicious stare. 

Fish is a general good luck symbol. It has various meanings in different cultures. In Buddhism the fish stands for happiness and freedom, these characters I have given to my fish images.

The Hamsa Hand brings great fortune and happiness. It is a Middle Eastern amulet causing good luck and health. Hamsa in Hebrew comes from the word hamesh, witch means five. Five is considered to be a lucky number. Five senses are the treasure of human beings.

The Hamsa Hand often includes the icon of an eye for added strength. I chose strong and pure hearts instead for love and joy, for emotion and compassion. 

Blue and purple are royal colors, and my butterfly is set into the night sky of endless stars.

The figures of yin and yang add harmony and balance to the painting.

MISSIS GAZAWAY - going for a walk in the meadow, all dressed up and not missing a thing

More than 25 years ago we lived in the United States, and our son was enrolled in public school for his first class. He had classmates from around the world. Their English language teacher was Missis Gazaway, a gorgeous strong woman, full of positive life energies, and love for all these little kids, who spoke many languages except English. She was a wonderful teacher, very watchful, caring, funny, and smart. The children adored her, and the parents as well.
