1987 Los Angeles. "On the first day of the Yom
Kippur war to the light of candles at night, on the
floor using a canvas and a piece of plywood, I started
to paint. Was it the shock of the unknown which led
me to the subconscious urge to paint faces, or was it
the inspiration from being a veteran member at the artists
village Ein Hod?"
