Oil on canvas (original dimensions: 48”x24”)

In parshas בשלח. It is all about the splitting of the sea.

My original plan was to paint Bnei Yisrael (the Children of Israel)
leaving Egypt with the splitting of the Red Sea. My thought was to
paint it with a view from above and to include the tops of the heads of
Bnei Yisrael being chased by the Egyptians on horseback and in chariots.
Once I finished painting the horses, I did not want to add anything else.

The biblical verse in this painting is:

‏”אלה ברכב ואלה
בסוסים ואנחנו בשם ה׳ אלקינו נזכיר המה כרעו ונפלו  ואנחנו קמנו ונתעודד”

“Some through chariots, and some through horses, but we –  in the name of Hashem, our God, call out. They slumped and fell, but we arose invigorated Hashem save! The king will answer us on the day we call.” (Psalm 20)
