Cherry Blossom

About: “Cherry Blossom” represents the beauty of life, while reminding us how short and fragile our lives are. Similar to the blooming time of the flower itself, it teaches us to enjoy the beauty in the little things and short moments in life, to always live life to its fullest. I was named after the cherry blossom, and the special meaning of the flower. After my injury, the meaning of my name resonates much deeper and is a sign to remind me of the all of the gifts I still I have in my life. During my rehabilitation, I made sure to adopt this mantra. Through the difficult stages and learning to appreciate the small victories I made on my way to recovery.

Mishkenot Sheananim

About: I’ve been in the Belev Echad art project for over a year now, and this is my third painting. I decided to paint mishkanot-shaananim, one of Jerusalem’s oldest and prettiest neighborhood.  I think Jerusalem has a very special charm and beauty to it, and I try to make new and better memories there in order to make sure  that what happened to me doesn’t ruin my love for the city.  I started painting this after a visit to this neighborhood and the old city last fall.

The Desert Hills

About: After Eran’s injury, he was looking for a quiet place where he could clear his head and settle the thoughts following the injury. The desert landscape was familiar to Eran from his military service and the silence and charm of the desert gave Eran inspiration for painting. The stream of water in the painting describes the life that continues to flow like a river and even if the road is bumpy, life will continue like the flow in the stream.
