A HAND PAINTED CARD FROM MY SISTER



This is the beautiful card my sister in Israel sent me for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. It arrived by e-mail so I don't have it in my physical possession but I wanted to share it with everyone. Harriet is the one who got me back to painting. She is also the reason I am working in watercolor. We took a workshop together in Cape Cod and I bought all these tubes of watercolor. The rest is history. We have shared a love of art our entire lives. Here is a photo of us painting inside the entrance to our apartment in this little town Porceno in Umbria, Italy. We have painted together in Israel and France as well as Ashland, Oregon; Taos, New Mexico and of course, Province town, Massachusetts. Next spring we are planning a trip to Spain. Since we live a half a world away, it is a wonderful way to spend time together when we get the chance. Now with our Skype connection we can talk to each other for free through our computers and actually see each other. It's the next best thing to being in the same room.

Hi, Is it appropriate to say "Happy New Year"?

May you have an enjoyable year of painting and inspiring us.
