Welcome, to the Blessing Doves Art Project

A blessing is an expression from many cultures and religions that is offered as a gift of favor, protection, good wishes, happiness or divine will.
Blessing doves are created and distributed around the globe with all of these intentions. A Blessing Dove is an anonymous gift to be discovered randomly by a stranger. The aim of the project is to brighten one’s day, and to instill a sense of peace, hope and love.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. My peace I give to you” The Counselor

John 14:27

.

The pandemic restrictions are still lingering, but a few traveling volunteers are out there blessing with doves.

This dove loved the winding streets and the abundance of gorgeous flowers in the lovely town of Deir Al Qamar, Lebanon. I’m happy that she’ll find a new home.

This dove is in the bell tower at the Balamond Monastery in Lebanon, few villages away from my ancestors (with a grand view of The Mediterranean). May she enjoy the sound of the bells and carry them in her heart.

Copenhagen - August 2017

A short layover on my way home from Athens, Greece gave me a chance to walk the pier of Copenhagen and bless the area with doves. A special treat to see the littlest mermaid that inspired Walt Disney.

Palestine - December 2015

An opportunity to put up an art exhibition titled Diaspora of Being for the International Palestinian Diaspora conference in Bethlehem, Palestine brought me back to Israel to blessed the area once again, but this time on the suppressed side of the land where the affects of the occupation and refugee camps were visibly evident. The stratified contrast of living conditions was disturbing and the sense of survival riveting. I left part of my heart behind. This area of our world needs prayer.

Italy - July 2013

An artist-in-residency took me to Italy for the month of July 2013. I was placed in Assisi at the top of a holy mountain to explore the spirit of my art. Short ventures to the Venice Biennale, Florence, Rome and the Piedmont region where my grandmother was born gave me lots of sites to gift the little doves throughout Italy.
