DIGITal Photo Art – Custom PHOTOgraphic STYLIZING
You can hire us and our award-winning photographer to take photos of your house or business — or you can send them directly to us. Within a week to ten days, you will receive a beautiful digital painting from one of these pictures. As we like to say, “Our computer is your paintbrush.” For more information, please check our Digital photo art page and our store.
Talks and Workshops – israel speaker
Your audience will get a moving, insider’s glimpse of what’s it’s like to live in the Middle East today. Drawing on his years of journalism experience, a deep knowledge of Hebrew poetry and his own writings, Rick sketches the contours of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a memorable way and outlines the chances for peace. In addition, workshops create a safe atmosphere in which people are encouraged to write their own memoirs or poems.
