FINE ART & PHOTOGRAPHY
"Painting and creating art is a physical pleasure"
Painting and the creation of art are a great source of physical and intellectual pleasure.
Since retiring from Judith Jack, Inc., the international jewelry design firm my husband, Jack and I founded, I've had the luxury of time to devote to a life-long love, the creation of art.
Portraying women in all their diversity and drama is one of my inspirations. A merger of my original acrylic paintings and my latest interest - photography, is my newest body of work. My published writings on the subjects of historical fashion and jewelry, and the research necessary to be factual have inspired me to portray women - bold, daring, playful or conservative - who so creatively present themselves to the world. Literature fashion, museums, architecture, and nature have been influences as well.
This recent interest has led me to incorporate photography into my paintings. Cityscapes - the vigorous energy, natural and artificial lights, street scenes, buildings, department store windows, the constant motion of people and the sheer buzz of the city are exciting and inspirational. I try to incorporate the elements of light and motion in my work.
I've recently designed a series of "Women of the Flowers." A sequence of steps is performed to achieve what I hope are distinctive results: I paint in acrylics, photograph the image then using the computer, alter colors, change backgrounds -just keep designing. I work on these paintings until my head and my heart say, "Enough!" They are then printed on an aluminum sheet. (Process described on Contact page). This media method offers drama, elegance, and quality that sets them apart from any other process - complete, unique and without the need for framing, ready to adorn your home!
There are endless uses for the various mediums and tools that are available for artistic expression. I hope that the observer truly enjoys the marrying of media and the many aspects of beauty I have chosen in creating my art.

Jack and I share another passion, our desire to make the world a kinder, gentler place for children at risk. We have established Non-Sectarian funds in memory of our son, David. First at the Police Athletic League in NYC - the David Rosenberg Fishing Adventure Fund - on behalf of inner-city children.
Presently, we've designed and furnished a playroom for psychologically impaired children and also sponsor the Judith & Jack Rosenberg Mentoring For Kids program. Donations are very welcome at the Alpert Jewish Family & Children's Service, (AJFCS) in West Palm Beach.
Our hope is that children of all denominations will continue to benefit from our efforts.
