I have been saving this wall hanging for a while because I really love it, but since I will soon be moving I am offering it for sale on eBay.  It is made of thin strips of unfinished satin, silk and cotton, woven together.  The loose threads further knit the colors together.  It is a fragile but lovely piece.  I will try to get a better picture of it on this sunny day.
Here is the eBay link

Joanna's Garden

Here is another painting I have been saving that has to go.  It was done several years ago in the beautiful gardens of Joanna Reed, who until a year before she died at 85 could be found working in her garden at almost any time of the day. She gardened for more than 60 years at Longview Farm, creating what many considered a living work of art.

postcards from Brooklyn

Since I have two children with families living in Brooklyn I often am inspired by the shapes and colors I find there to paint.  As a result I have just published another book in what seems to be developing into a series of Postcard books.  This one has lots of images and musings from Brooklyn and has just hit the news stands.  It is available from Amazon for only $15.00.
