Snow Buddha

small snowbound Buddha
his hand raised to dispel fear
greets me on my walk

Friday, February 18

Friend Friday!

Yeah, I sure WISH Oprah was my friend. She seems really fun, intelligent and nice. But to be honest, I must be the only woman in America who has never even once watched her TV show (it's nothing personal, I just never watch TV.) However this current issue of O Magazine features my friend, painter Abbey Ryan in the Women who Create Beautiful Things section! What a thrill...way to go Abbey! Get hold of the magazine and it is on p. 38, February 2011 issue.

Dick Ranck giving his packed-house gallery talk at Rosemont last night

Dick Ranck is having a show of his work exploring religion and mythology at Rosemont College in Rosemont, PA. It is entitled The Company I Keep (when i am alone)  The work looks great in the space, glowing with color and vigorous iconic form, both 2D and 3D. It runs through March 25, so you'll have a chance to catch it. For more info on the show click here.

One of my favorite pieces in the exhibit.
