New Ketubah Scroll Completed

I am thrilled to share my latest completed  art commission. Jennifer and David found my web site Rosenthal Ketubahs,
They called and made an appointment to 
meet at my studio. After a pleasant lunch we 
discussed all of their details regarding thei
wedding. I already had some ideas but their 
input was important. We agreed on a contract 
which was acceptable for all of us. I did a few quick sketches
and the project was on its way. Here is the final 
art 23"x47", hand ground Chinese ink on silk
mounted on silk. The wedding vows are in English and
Hebrew. Chinese calligraphy "Double Happiness"
Their wedding will take place at the Chinese 
Scholars Garden in Snug Harbor, Staten Island. 
The painting brings elements of traditional 
heritages reflecting both partners. 
The shape of the vows are a floating Chinese
Lantern beneath a shimmering full moon.
