Chanukah would not be complete for me if I did not attempt to share my joy of the Holiday through my art. So after some thought, this is what I came up with.
Recently I purchased some black gesso – it’s the stuff you prime the canvas with before you paint – for another project. Working with a blank black canvas is a whole new experience, and I’m enjoying the challenge.
Chanukah being all about lighting up the darkness was the perfect opportunity to work with a deep black canvas and see where I can take it. Beginning with a gold menorah at the bottom of the large canvas I began painting in the glowing flames one day at a time, while taking photos and video of the process.
