Alzheimer’s Awareness month was moved from September to June this year. I had great hopes to write something insightful and to join an awareness walk. But life had other plans. My mother-in-law was once again hospitalized at the beginning of June, I experienced some more losses and writing fell by the wayside. More than once I have found myself thinking that I’m so glad I packed a lot into my summer last year, since this year has had little in the area of personal time. I haven’t even taken my kayak down from the garage wall where I hung it at the end of the season last year.
Rather than feel sorry for myself, I’ve been trying to sort through things in my office and studio in an effort to be ready when I have some open time. I’ve found nine etchings that I did in college that are mounted in some mat board taking up storage space. So I’m offering them for free. If you would like one of these etchings, leave a comment on how to contact you and I’ll send you one. First nine people to contact me gets them.
The etching is titled, Tiny Dancer. The image is 2.5 inches by 6 inches and the mat is 8 inches by 12 inches. The edition was a total of 20 prints. Here’s a picture. Enjoy.
