An interesting opportunity arose to participate in a writer's and artist's event called "Inspired By".

First, I provide an original image to a writer, who then writes a piece inspired by the painting.  I, in turn, receive a piece of writing, and paint an image inspired by the story or poem.  I am excited to see the results!  

Two of my paintings were chosen to be forwarded to writers.
