Art Show at the Lucile Parker Gallery at William Carey University

My "Circle Dance" fiber art piece is pictured in the center of the invitation. This show is generally limited to watercolor, oil, and acrylics, so I am glad my fiber art is eligible. The opening reception is Tuesday, September 1, from 4:30-6:00 p.m., and the show runs through September 17.

Life Is Beautiful with Elephants

I love elephants. Last week my granddaughter Kiesha Baker sent me a beautiful hand colored framed zentangle elephant picture, with the wording "Life Is Beautiful." I couldn't agree more, and I will enjoy seeing her artwork every day. Kiesha is the mother of two precious boys and is a doula with Dallas Birth Doulas, so she helps families welcome their little miracles into this beautiful world.

 Speaking of elephants, I recently purchased a hand-dyed silk stitched elephant by quilt artist Patricia Anderson Turner from Florida. Patricia is an award-winning artist who usually makes quilts which tell a story or offer a social commentary.
