Little Free Library Landscape


Recently, I was so delighted to run into a former client about whom I had written an earlier post. That post talked of her enthusiasm about her worm bin in the basement and how she shared it with other kids at her daughters' schools.
This time, she shared an addition to their garden which you can see above. I was thrilled to learn about Little Free Library. Hope you are too!

Ezra Siegel: "Best of Show" Evanston Big Fork Art Festival Sept. 27-28, 2014


A big sister must brag...


I selected the shots that show Ezra's paintings in his booth. To see a much more thorough representation of his work go to his website.


Blame me for making him pose under this hat painting. I prefer the abstract works but I believe his hanging this literal piece amidst them brings out their abstraction.
