Elsy Menko – Artist style #5

Kibbutz field – waiting for the rain

Not only the kibbutzim themselves were a favorite subject of Michael Kovner, so were the fields surrounding them. He painted them in all seasons.

Commercial cotton fabrics, tule, acrylic paint, machine stitched, some hand stitching
