Napkin Art

It’s been just the two of us in the house during the days since school ended for the summer, (my son, Maya’s brother, is in Japan for two weeks, very lucky teen indeed.) We were so overjoyed that rushed school life is giving us a break that we did not leave the house the whole entire week. We were perfectly happy, being all grungy and responsibility-less. Just yesterday, finally, we came out of the cave. Nothing fancy, just a nice day out, having breakfast together, getting some shopping done, visiting Borders, that kind of thing. So here we are having breakfast at the Cafe. Maya drew me not very happy, probably because I wished to have her yummy breakfast which was what they call an Eggal (Bagel & egg) instead of my boring oatmeal. Funny how I drew Maya here looking like an adult, and how Maya drew me like a child…Do you do napkin art?


About Orly

I truly believe that the need to be witnessed by the self and by others is a human core need to be fulfilled by the act of creating. Therefore, a compelling part of my journey is the teaching of art making and visual journaling. As a young adult in Israel, I had studied Fine Arts in an artists’ village nestled at the foot of Mount Carmel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and later, in the Netherlands, Graphic Design at the University of Arts in the contemporary yet history-drenched city of Utrecht. Now living by the beach of Southern California with my family, I take in all the magnificence of the landscapes that shaped me and of the visual languages I have acquired along the way. I am passionate about the process of marrying multiple media to create a unique visual experience for both the eye and the spirit. I have never experienced a thing in my life without being influenced by its look. I am an avid collector of words, memories, sights, colorful people, experiences and more. I come here to play in my exciting bloground. Here I can be who I am, and get clarity of who I’d like to become. It’s a place where spontaneous events occur. I am here to express the inexhaustible mine of mine of inner and outer landscapes, languages, cultures, and of personal and close to heart matters. I hope that each entry, each spread, consisting of two corresponding pages, will provide you with visual excitement, inspiration, and even amusement—creating an ongoing gallery for you and me to enjoy. Thank you for all the wondrous feedback you provide me with, I see my blog as an opportunity to connect and interconnect with the worlds around me and therefore your collaboration with me is very much appreciated.
