It was 10 years ago November 1st that my 38" hair was cut off, the auction of the collection began, and we said started our goodbyes to the Church building that we had, with great love and care, turned into a studio, home and gallery. It was fun to run across these pictures recently when gathering images for a project.

Well, after many years lurking in the corner, Madame Irma is finally finished and ready to make her entrance in a proper way. She is to be paired with Galactic Syzygy - the Cello assemblage that I created for the Denver Young Artist Orchestra's Painted Violin program, which is touring through next Spring.
The next gallery on the tour invited the 17 artists to send along a wall work, and it was fun to finish up Irma for the occasion. I have not had a signed work for show and sale since the complete divestment of my inventory in 2001! She is 48 x 24 plus frame. Acrylic, gilt, Austrian and German Crystal on panel.
