What a GIFT!!




Laura Mack, my wonderful long-time friend, gave me the BEST birthday present ever–an absolutely stunning painting/collage of me and my clematis!  She knows me well.  She even tucked in my husband LeRoy.  Isn’t it great!  She used some of my own clematis photos, too!

Laura and I have known each other on both coasts, having met when we worked together in Boston, Massachusetts.  In 2004, she and her husband and me and mine both left the east coast for the west:  I headed to Seattle and she went to Salem, Oregon.  Laura’s a professional artist and a college art teacher–it shows!
