Optical Greys – Video Clip

Working on the Judgment Card for the Zeitgeist Tarot and found an opportunity to talk about one of the amazing color effects that makes me love the Mische Technique

Purchases Through My RedBubble Store

Hi everyone!  Despite appearances and sparse updates, I’m happy to report that I have been hard at work on some new pieces including a couple of additions to the Zeitgeist Tarot.  While I receive notifications when someone has made a purchase through my RedBubble store, RedBubble does not disclose the name of the person who […]

First Draft of Artist Statement

I would love any feedback people would like to provide!— Previously working in acrylics and oils, Lerman began painting exclusively in the mixed or Mische technique of the Flemish masters in early 2011.  This technique, which involves layering egg tempera with oil paints, lends itself to producing works with exceptional depth and luminosity.  While this […]

Olds and News

Haven’t updated in far too long, so here’s a quick recap of what I’ve been up to.  Since announcing that I’m taking commissions, I’ve been getting fairly consistent work to do in addition to my Tarot paintings.  I’m now working on a commission for a painting based on a poem by Rumi.  Pictures will be […]

Update on New Project – Tarot Series

Good news, everyone!  I finally started work on an entire series of paintings!  I’d been kicking around the idea of painting tarot cards for a couple of years, but a few months ago I decided to commit to the project.  I’m now well into my first card and have several sketches for the second. Without […]
