July/Tammuz "Ma Tovu Ohalecha Ya'acov" How Goodly Are Your Tents O Jacob

The Blessing of Community

Artist Susie Lubell’s colorful im3 Lubellage of the Ma Tovu text highlights the vibrancy of the Israelite community. The words of the blessing embrace the diverse buildings and trees, uniting them within a common vision of peace and faith. Each home and plant is different, yet they stand close together, overlapping and connecting with each other to make the whole. The image’s brightness creates an atmosphere of celebration, security, and vitality. It is a blessing for the community and all who are included in its shelter.

Susie Lubell is a self-trained artist now living in Israel. She originally created this image with watercolor paint. To see more of her fine art work, please visit her website at www.susielubell.com. You can also visit www.milkandhoneyartshop.etsy.com to view prints of her watercolor paintings.
