Anne Patchett talks about her new book, "State Of Wonder", at the Friends of the Fallbrook Library. She's a wonderful speaker and my favorite author. This year she's one of the Time Magazine Most Influential People.

 My painting, in progress. The technique involved acrylics, colored pencil, contact paper, alcohol, stencils, stamping. Don't worry- this is going to get better.

Green with envy of you meeting Ann Patchett --one of my favorite author's too.
Do try hammering flowers.
Just put between two sheets of heavy art paper --with a magazine to pad underneath and thump away.
I look forward to seeing your results.
Elizabeth and Buster.
