The Perfect Christmas Tree

When I was growing up the Christmas tree wasn't just a decoration sitting in the corner; it was the main event. While my sisters and I slept on Christmas Eve, Santa decorated the tree with cherished ornaments, iced sugar cookies, candy canes, ribbon candy, and popcorn balls in colorful cellophane wrappers. We saw the tree for the first time when we woke on Christmas morning and it was often difficult to decide where to look first: at the shimmering tree or at the gifts clustered beneath it's spreading branches. Once we had opened all the presents and the excitement was over for another year, the perfect tree continued to offer little gifts of sweets and treats during the entire twelve days of Christmas.

Alice Meets the Cheshire Cat

Our recent "Alice" exhibit at Century Books is like a lovely gift that keeps on giving. On the opening night of the exhibit my friend (and writer extraordinaire) Joe Taylor bought my little graphite drawing, "Alice Meets the Cheshire Cat". He found the perfect place to hang it in his home - on a wall with a framed Peanuts comic strip signed by Charles Schulz himself! I couldn't be more thrilled to be in such august company. Thank you, Joe!

Alice's Dream

Our Alice exhibit is just a memory now - all the pictures we sold have found new homes and new images have taken their place in the Upstairs Gallery at Century Books. I'm so pleased that my piece, "Alice's Dream", will be hanging in the home of my friends Sophia Bicos and Steven Corvelo. Thank you, Sophia and Steven - and thanks again to all who came out to the show!
