I just finished this ketubah for an anniversary celebration. (See my preliminary sketch here. The original sketch included their Briard dogs, but we decided to leave them out. ) It was commissioned by a couple who spend much of their time sailing on Lake Michigan.
Working on it brought me back to my sailing days. I learned to sail at Camp Ramah in Canada, and worked there as a sailing instructor. I went on to teach sailing lessons at the Hoofers Sailing Club at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I tried to capture the power of the wind in the sails, the rhythm and rocking of the waves and the freshness and energy of being out on the lake on a sail-boat. (See more of my ketubahs here.)
