"Breaking the glass."
During a Jewish wedding ceremony, the bridegroom breaks a glass. This symbolizes the destruction of our ancient temple in Jerusalem. Some say this is symbolic of moralizing pleasure and tempering emotions.
The carpet in the synagogue where our daughter got married almost 7 months ago is a beautiful, rich red colour. This image, showing much of the richness of this carpet was an obvious choice for this challenge - red.
Thanks to Heather Dubreuil, for generously instructing me on the technical aspects of this piece.
