HOME BLESSING / Drawing / 16.5x11.8 / 44.95 USD

Description: Limited Edition Reproductions Giclée on Fine Art Textured Paper available upon request Blessing of the Home - Birkat HaBayit Kings 1 5:5 Isaiah 65: 21-23 Vibrant song birds, graceful butterflies, bountiful fig trees, luscious grape vines, palm and pine trees; this profusion of color with roses and hibiscus all exquisitely detailed, flow along from day to month, season after season in this Blessing of the Home. Ellen Miller Braun shares with you the great tranquility, joy and hope for the present and the future that envelop her when she gazes from this inspiring, picturesque view from her home in the heart of Samaria, Israel. Ellen often uses gematria, Jewish numerology, with her work, where the letters of the Hebrew alphabet have numerical value. This Blessing of the Home has the Scriptural verses written 166 times. Why 166? One hundred sixty five micro calligraphy inscriptions create the homes and gardens surrounding the central window. The letters of the Hebrew expression "L'Chayim Tovim" - For a Good Life, equal 165. One additional inscription in the center of the piece represents the singular "Spirit of G-d," "Ruach HaKodesh." With His Blessing, the Gift of Life flows into and through our homes. A Blessed Home is truly a Good Life. May we all be so blessed. "They dwelt in safety, each man under his vine and under his fig tree.And they built houses and inhabit them, and they planted vineyards and eat the fruit of them.And my chosen ones shall long enjoy the work of their hands.for they are the seed of the blessed of the L-rd and their offspring with them."

Ellen Braun

Biography
Ellen Miller Braun was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. Drawing on her natural talent, Ellen studied fine arts at Northeastern Illinois University. Ellen and her husband decided to follow their heart felt dream and moved to Israel with their children in 1983. The story of how Ellen began creating micro calligraphy is almost as inspiring as the works of art themselves. Before Ellen began creating these amazing works, she was already a world class artist creating soft sculptures of whimsical Chassidic figures as well as familiar Political and Biblical characters. This was another form of art that showed the painstaking dedication she has to her craft. While these figures were quite popular both in Israel and around the world, as Ellen puts it, "Hashem (God) had new plans for me. One day I woke and the need to do this (micro calligraphy) descended and enveloped me. However, I am a person who needs time to think things over and I wasn't ready to do something like this at that point in my already busy life. Ellen's husband got a call from one of his friends in California. They wanted to start marketing micrography in their area and asked for Eliezer's help finding suppliers. Once Ellen heard this, she understood the gift she was being given. She told her husband about doing micro calligraphy herself... and the rest as they say, is history. Even with her extensive art background, Ellen really just took it one step at a time. Each time she developed a piece she learned something new, starting with the fact that she is the only one in the world to use a calligraphy pen and water color paint to create her pieces. Some pieces taking as much as 11 months to create. The first piece she created was Shir Ha Shirim (Song of Solomon)- the idea was just there. The next two pieces, Ezekiel 36 and Lion of Judah, came as suggestions from her husband. Ellen began creating her micro calligraphy art in 1999, Her exquisite designs are sold as both numbered, limited fine art reproductions, and non-numbered editions, which can be viewed in her Gallery. Ellen also has created numerous pieces for private collections. Ellen's unique micro calligraphy art can be found throughout the world, bringing inspiration, hope and joy to people from all backgrounds. Her work is featured in both public and private venues and has also been included as a page in a special women's prayer book, "Ani Le' Dodi V'Dodi Li" and as a teaching tool in a Jewish school text book. In addition Ellen lectures on the development of this fascinating Jewish art form, bringing another layer of insight to the history of Israel and the Jewish people.
