Here it is, a collaborative painting with watercolour,
of a magical princess walking in to the forest in a yellow light.

Collaborative painting at special events such as weddings, is live magic for me. Suddenly, creativity takes place where it’s unexpected. Well, I guess this is the thing with creativity. There is always an element of surprise. When people come to a wedding, they usually think of how they look, what can they eat and oh what a nice place and such (and this is the positive scenario…)
Watch here at an Israeli wedding in action:
Seldom in weddings you will see people connecting to something authentic, find their place in peace and be passionate about a creative process. I am lucky to see it happen, every time when I bring my canvas, paint and brushes to a wedding. Since I created this method, I get to see more and more cooperative, joyful and brave people who are willing to take part in this activity of collaborative painting.
Often the guests in the wedding will look at this as surprising, and maybe they are even too afraid of really get to paint. “Maybe I’ll destroy it” they say. “I’m really bad at painting” is something I hear a lot. The thing is, that even 2 year old babies get to paint with me, at the same time with grandmas, businessman, mothers, bankers and more.
Of course things in the painting might change when few people are trying their brushes on it. The thing is, they really get to play this way. Free of the responsibility on the outcome (this is my part, you can see some examples here), free of what people will think, free of their own inner judge.
These are moments of magic, of letting go, of learning to be brave and to accept the change.
If you believe in this magic, I am here for you. I will fly anywhere in the world for this adventure, (well, if you come to Israel for your event it will be even easier for me…) or guide you on video with a special short course for collaborative painting leaders.

Shakti Festival is a congress of women in Israel, where women come to meet each other and participate in special workshops.
This painting was painted there. Prints are available, contact email@example.com.
This time I brought my collaboration painting idea, a new 100/100 cm canvas and a lot of acrylic paint. Take a look at the process of the becoming of the painting, and the many shapes it changed thanks to all the creative women that took part in it. The final shape is mine, inspired by all the things that appeared and disappeared there before. It took 2 days, during this beautiful gathering, and was finished while dancing in a very happy party. The best part was when we drew a lottery and one of the women took the painting home.
This is very exciting for me, it is a unique thing to do if you have some special event coming (Bat Mitzva / wedding / birthday / party). Please invite me and it will be the best thing for you and for me, and you’ll have a one of a kind original painting. You can contact me on Facebook.
These pictures document the process of a collaborative painting in a very nice party, with a bunch of creative, fun people.
It took place in a beautiful house that hosted my paintings for an exhibition for this special event.
Along with live music, food and good vibes, I started painting. People were welcome to join me, so the painting changed all the time while children enjoyed the opportunity to play with some real acrylic and canvas.
My inspiration came as a beautiful pregnant woman. Then she took a brush and painted with me.
My three year old daughter painted too while her younger one year old sister tried to take part as well.
At the end of the evening we drew a lottery, so that anyone who wanted to win the painting put some money and a happy winner took it home 🙂
It was an exciting experience for me; I will do it again for sure.

This is an acrylic painting, 60/60 cm. Painted with a little help from my 3 year old daughter. Being a parent and a painter, for me, is 100% creativity at all times. Sometimes when it doesn’t work, and, for example, when I plan on napping and instead I get jumping on the bed (or head), I go to my magical place. Painting. So, this painting is thanks to all things in life that help me in being a better mother: plans, children, change and flexibility. Oh Magic Deer, be my guide to all the craziness that happens sometimes.If you want to buy this painting, click here.
