Real Wedding by ElenaBerlo - Canvas Ketubah Tree of Life in blue vibes

I am proud of this gorgeous & happy couple, Alexandra & Joshua, for which I have designed their wedding Ketubah. And Alexandra was so nice to share back with us their love and memories from the ceremony day.
Thank you! Elena
Where there is Love there is Life. 

I love the Sumi-e lessons in Constanta with Dr. Ion Codrescu

Studying ink and brush painting with Renowned Haiga Artist and Professor Ion Codrescu. The Japanese artform of haiga painting and sumi-e focuses on the creation of imagery to compliment a haiku poem. Materials: brushes, ink and rice paper.

Post Eden Art of Living

Group Exhibition Vernisaj at Contempora, Friday 9 March 2018
Thanks to Corina Laura Nae @contempora
Collages: monoprint, metallic gold and silver leaf, crayon, coloured pencil, ink, print reproductions of original gouache and watercolour paintings, on paper, wood and craft tubes. The theme of the exhibition is Post Eden art of living, the project being a collaboration with Genu Berlo. The exhibit is constructing, conceptually and especially emotionally-sensorially, on two well known archetypes, Adam and Eve and The Garden of Eden, Gan Eden גַּן עֵדֶן in Aramaic, Hebrew. At the base there are two flights as I call them: one is the flight from yourself, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and the second is the desire to return, or to find yourself, the Garden, and the Tree of Life.

Watercolor flower studies for Flower Garlands Ketubah


Making an Original Ketubah Art Commission is a project in itself and it involves many steps, but apart of being in touch with a wonderfully spirited and excited couple and bride, the designing step is always a marvel in itself, and such an enriching experience. It is giving your best and elevating the oil back to light, as some alchemical stories would describe. In any measure, it feels righteous and holy to us, and we can’t stop by putting all our love and attention into it.
Here are some scans of process and variants for flowers for such a Ketubah:
