I’m so honored that two of my paintings are included in Patti Digh’s beautiful book, The Geography of Loss.  This amazing book addresses the very human experience of loss with rich language and gorgeous art from artists around the world.  It will leave you grateful and blessed.

Over at Not Your Grandmother’s Needlepoint, they have chosen one of my licensed needlepoint canvases as the mystery class!  I am in awe of the creative stitches!  It’s so much fun to watch a painting be transformed by needlework.

The blog is updated regularly with the progress, I can’t wait to see what they do next.
