Emails are great but when I get a card, I know that someone cared enough about me to find a pen (not easy), scratch out a message, lick a stamp, and mail it. Sometimes that's more important than what they said inside.

When I live with a painting, I form a relationship with the artist and the piece. I choose pieces that move me, inspire me, surprise me, or, I just can't leave behind.  I have lots of paintings by other artists that do that for me on my walls. I hope my pieces do that for you. If not, I hope you keep searching. The artist is out there for you.

I admired her indomitable spirit, endless energy and sometimes reckless pursuit of her dreams but mourned  her increasing confinement by limitations, both real and imagined.
