Judith Silverman Artwork

Here is some of Judith's artwork.  The process of scanning the artwork into a JPG file really doesn't do it justice.  One of the projects in my queue is to make some high quality images with a large scanner.

The Israel Paintings

In March and April, 2000, my husband and I went to Israel.  We got there just after the pope left, and this is what we saw.  Note that the pictures have been reduced in size for quick loading; use the "view image" feature in your browser to see the picture full size.

An Israeli bird
Bird
One morning, at Kibbutz Kfir Blum, we were awoken by lots of birds.  So my husband and I went for a walk along the river Jordan and we saw thousands of birds, migrating north from Africa to Europe and Asia.  Israel is a land bridge between the three continents and so not only conquering armies but flocks of birds come there on there way to someplace else.

The artist and the dome of the rock
The Dome of the Rock
This is a view of the Dome of the Rock as seen from the east side of the city, near the Hotel Intercontinental and the Garden of Gethsemanie.  In the foreground is the Golden Gate, which was bricked over in the middle ages to prevent the Jewish Messiah from returning to Jerusalem.  Also in the foreground is a muslim cemetary, again placed there to prevent the Jewish Messiah from returning to Jerusalem (the Messiah must be a priest, and priests are forbidden to go near a grave).

The sky is the hovering of the Shekina, the holy spirit, over the site of the ancient Jewish temple.

A small dealer of fruit in the old city
The market in the old city
The old city has many passages such as this one where small vendors have set up their shop in an arch way. In some places, the only light is from a naked light bulb, which creates fascinating patterns of light and shadow. Oil 2001

A camel at the ancient city of Petra
Camel
This camel carries tourists to Petra, an ancient city cut into the stone in Jordan.

I like camels.  I brought a piece of currant cake from the hotel, and when we came to this camel, it found the cake in my pocket. I fed it the cake.  Then, my husband said, "Say cheese" and both the camel and I looked in his direction.

We rode the camels.  They are called "ships of the desert" but the ride is not comfortable.
