February is, of course, Black History Month. So, here is a portrait of one of the people I most admire in the world. I devoured her autobiography series as a teenager in the eighties, nibbled at her poetry throughout the years, got goosebumps when she read her piece "On the Pulse of the Morning" at Clinton's inauguration, and was brought to tears by the tenor of her voice when I saw her in person at a lecture a few years ago. Yes, to borrow her phrase, it is safe to say she is a "shero" of mine.

So, check out the Treasury I created on Etsy. This is my first attempt at putting together one of these little jems, and I'm quite happy with the results. It's actually pretty hard to get a treasury slot, so I'm extra happy to have been able to show off all these fine artist's work. Go and see for yourself.

The dove on the top is a detail image from my mixed-media piece called "Faith". I really liked this sweet little bird image, so I put together a re-mix.....The image on the bottom is a NEW offering on my Etsy.com and Imagekind shops. The watercolor and pen Love Dove is surrounded by a sweet little hand-drawn border.

Here's a quick little postcard I just finished. I'm planning to paint a series of Mayan birds, and this postcard was a quick study/experiment of style and materials.
