Our Vibrant Earth ( at Waverly House)

Our Vibrant Earth is made of recycled  silk from the factories in India that make the women's clothing called Saris.   The  proceeds from my purchase go to provide Safe Shelter, Health Care and Education to Women in Nepal.

This piece of art represents the various stratus of our earth.   It starts with the brown earth, the water in the rivers and streams and ocean, the green forest and savannas, the hot and dry deserts, to the purple mountains and the air and clouds above.    

Sea Shells by the Sea Shore (Sorry, I am Sold.)

I went to California in September and got to put my feet in the Pacific Ocean again.   This is how I remember that day.   Waves washing to the shore and the foamy water left behind as the tide reveals the shells.   It was such a peaceful day with not a care in the world.   Just like a vacation should be.
