Certosa Paintings

In 2010, I spent July and August at the beautiful Certosa di Pontignano, a former monastery converted into a university guesthouse outside of Siena. I was managing the inaugural Italy program for the Jerusalem Studio School there, and in my free time I often turned to things in my immediate vicinity, often preferring the multitude of motifs inside my very bedroom. It was quite a shock when I returned to Israel and tried to hang these on the wall next to paintings I had painted in Israel; the difference in temperature and light was almost alarming, the blue, cool light of Israel versus the warm pinks of Italy.
