Evelyn Jan, Maor's mother, studied in her youth with the painter Uri Lifshitz, but only in 2008, after a 30-year hiatus and following the disaster that befell her, she returned to painting in a studio in Netanya. In her search for a source of inspiration, she came across her son’s photo albums and decided to draw one of the photos. After drawing the first picture, she felt the need to continue drawing more and more... Each brush stroke followed the heart and the longing, the spring was abundant and thus a series of paintings was created, which connected her to her beloved son. Through painting, she feels his presence inside her.
