  1. It is so so hard to lose a contemporary and friend. A very good friend of mine is battling pancreatic....

  2. What beautiful works of art she created. I am sure she will be missed by a large community of people.

  3. I was not familiar with her work. Thank you for the gallery tour. I loved her use of light. Hope you are having a wonderful spring, Vicki.
