An Artistic Sanatorium . . . for the muse plagued with artistic attention deficit disorder.

An Homage to my Grandmother



My grandmother turned ninety back in April.  She is about as quintessentially "grandma" as they come - she loves roses, birds, and the color pink.  Hence the more-than-usual frilliness of the silhouette I created for her.

She is also an artist.  An artist for over seventy years . . . and still painting.

I created the silhouette above in her honor, as she is a rather remarkable woman.   Rather than try to distill all her "remarkableness" into a small blog post, I hope to take her auto-biography (currently being written) and her prodigious amount of artistic work and create a website dedicated to her.
