Wow, where has the year gone?? Last year at Rosh Hashanah I woke up with the dream in the morning seeing this small painting. For the ones who are not familiar with the Jewish feast days, Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year,  during this time they have also Yom  Kippur, which is the day of atonement, in which they ask for forgiveness of the wrong done in the “old’ year and start with a new slate for the new.

For you who have known me longer, when painting I like to depict things of the past, recorded in the bible that are important even for us, non-jews. What I painted here, I had always imagined as a huge and grand event, the second coming of Jesus, who will come back to take his believers to  their heavenly home.

Feel I should take, how I saw the dream, as a pointer as how to paint it (small). Some have argued, that it might seem to the ones who will be left behind, as something insignificant, for Christ will come as “in the blink of an eye.” So, in human time that’s one second at the most.

There are many opinions as to when this will take place, but I don’t want to go into that here, That it will happen is for sure, and I hope with all my heart, that you will be one of the ones in this painting!

Am still adjusting to our life in another state. What I do know
is Hubby will sorely miss this this door, since behind it everything
had a place. Now, he has to start finding a place all over again
for his tools.
Thurs. Door, Weekend Reflection



In my new yard there are at the moment ten bushes along the fence with these and orang-y flowers. A Festive sight.



Too Early for dinner …

  1. I like the painting, Jesh. It always takes a bit fo time to adjust to the new place after a move and I hope that you are getting used to everything there.
    Thank you for taking part in the “My Sunday Best” Meme.


  2. I hope you are settling in well. I too, love the door reflection. Thanks for linking up and have a great week ahead.


  3. That is a pretty sunset with a mysterious feel to it. I can only imagine how difficult your move must be, and finding new places for everything. We’ve been in our house for 30 years. Yikes!!


  4. Great painting, and yes there are lots of opinions, really strong opinions, about the matter. Nice painting regardless.

    I love the reflection. I imagine your husband will adapt pretty quickly!!


    1. I wish happy days in your new home! Lovely painting, as well the sunset. The blooming shrub looks stunning. I have been an inactive blogger these days, we are renovating the house. Long work days, seen nothing new & interesting. This ordeal takes still a few weeks. We have Van Gogh exhibition, that is a must!


  5. Dearest Jesh,
    That is a clever idea for using your Mother’s maiden name as your artist signature!
    Yes, here in the East we do have higher humidity than in e.g. California or Arizona.
    Loved the low humidity while being there and it makes you do things more effortlessly.
    Good luck for your husband for getting his work shop tidied up once again! It takes time…


  6. Dearest Jesh,
    That is a nice painting but is it by you or St. Germain? A bit confusing with the text and underscript…
    Love the blooming Crepe Myrtle!
    We have bad weather for now but hoping to see an Indian Summer after all the tropical storms have left the area…


    1. Hello Mariette – thank you! For my painters name I have taken on my mothers maiden name. I always wanted that name growing up. but my parents decided against it since I would probably marry later. It gives me also a nice cushion of the privacy I need, referring to my previous job. About the weather here – it feels so different because of the humidity factor – the wind blows almost every day and it’s “hot” 80ties by now) and very humid.
