Here's my card, a salute to the women who helped to grow  America in the early 20th Century.  The photo is from a Montana midwife who kept a collection of pictures of the hundreds of children she helped be born.

Three Muses--Street art

Finally got my art stuff onto my new laptop--so nice to be able to create and post again.  Here's my take on the theme, Street Art.

Looking for an iconic face when who should pop up but Frida!  Have I mentioned that our new home is very close to Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's most iconic building.  I have even been volunteering there since May, and have learned a lot.  Frida and her husband, Diego Rivera were goof friends of the Kaufman family, who had the house built as a "summer cottage."  They often stayed there as guests of the Kaufmans, who collected Rivera's work.
