Higher and Higher Ketubah
by Risa Aqua
Trees, stairways, DNA, ladders, a scroll, a menorah…all reaching ever higher in this mystical/whimsical Ketubah. The colorful watercolor painting (reproduction) evokes a sense of seeking on many planes: intellectual, emotional, spiritual. At the same time, the rising, blossoming movement of the art describes the contentment and enjoyment that accompany this journey toward fulfillment, especially when traveling with one’s beloved by one’s side.
