DescriptionThe picture of a man reading Psalm 1 in Hebrew Bible is inspired by verses 1-3 of Psalm 1: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper”.The man in the painting reads God’s word (The Bible) and is spiritually watered, his feet in the water symbolize this too. This man becomes like the tree on the right, fruitful and firm in his life for the glory of the Lord.The scenery for this painting takes place at the Sea of Galilee in the land of Israel on a warm summer day.Suitable for decorating your home or work place, maybe as a nice gift for friends and family or as greeting cards etc.
Ilan Mizrahi, Tel Aviv Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Shalom and greetings from Israel!
My name is Ilan and I live and work in Tel Aviv Israel. I’ve been working as a graphic designer since 1999, in my daily work I mainly design software interface. When I was a child people always said I should be a painter when they saw my drawings. Well, in 1996 I did some painting as you can see in my galleries, but my paintings didn’t get much exposure. So I’m glad to have found Imagekind which would increase my art’s exposure. I hope you would enjoy looking at my works and photos, hopefully you could use them to decorate your home or work place, maybe as a nice gift for friends and family or as greeting cards.
